More potential WMD danger in the Woodward, Puthoff & Shipov approach to change m if e/m ratios change in the process.
Woodward using Mach's Principle
Puthoff using PV (won't work fortunately)
Shipov using torsion (may work - dangerous)
Their schemes could increase e/m and increase the repulsive (J/mcr)^2 faster than the attractive - e^2/mc^2r in the case of the stability of the hydrogen atom studied in the paper by Price.
V = @hc/mr + e^2/mr + (J/mr)^2 + /\zpfr^2
see Price's eq (11) p.5 - note his r^2 term - interesting
r = a(t)R
Price's eq. (1)
Internal dark energy core /\zpf may adjust to prevent the electrons and quarks as thin extended shells of charge from exploding. The atoms will still explode, which is bad enough. For hydrogen atom, m is reduced mass ~ electron mass with orbital angular momentum L
V/mc^2 = - e^2/mc^2r + (L/mcr)2 + /\r^2
Compare the Coulomb attraction between electron & proton with the centrifugal barrier
As m is decreased the repulsive centrifugal potential scales as 1/m^2 whilst the Coulomb attraction scales only as 1/m. Therefore the danger of instability grows if m is decreased to get NON-GEODESIC PROPELLANTLESS PROPULSION the way Woodward, Puthoff & Shipov all seem to want to do via different schemes.
Even in my GEODESIC WWD (Weightless Warp Drive) PROPELLANTLESS PROPULSION from tweaking the Goldstone Phase of the Higgs Field one must be careful not to disturb m on the scale of the atoms.

Subject: Expanding waistline? Don't blame the expanding universe
This week's top stories from the web's No.1 science and technology news service
29 September 2005
Welcome to the New Scientist newsletter, which this week reveals why we can't blame our expanding waistlines on the expansion of the universe, the vibrating clothes that help sports stars hone their skills, and the pill-sized camera that crawls through your intestine..Anil Ananthaswamy, Physical Sciences News Editor, Print Edition
Is your waistline spreading? Unfortunately you can no longer use the expansion of the universe as an excuse. While some things, such as clusters of galaxies, are known to stretch as the universe expands, physicists assumed that others, such as people, do not. But until now no one was sure why. It turns out that as long as the force - electromagnetic or gravitational - holding objects together exceeds a certain critical value, the expansion of the universe has no effect on them. This means that while you can't blame your bulging waistline on an expanding universe, at least we're not all about to be pulled apart...
