As I said, if Jim gets a positive experimental result that holds up to scrutiny, then we will have to take another
look at his "inertial reaction force" model and see if real physical sense can be made of it.

That seems unlikely as his signal-to-noise ratio is very poor - or do I misunderstand?
It could be that such long range acceleration-dependent interactions do make a *contribution* to the inertial
mass, and if so then there would be the question of how big the contribution is. If Jim's experiment can detect such
a contribution that would be very significant, even if the k in F = kma is only 0.23.

a 1/r effect force is subject to Wheeler-Feynman-Cramer time loop transaction. Quite obviously that requires the future event horizon. However, that also seems to require real gravity waves - and that’s a problem.
note that a gravity force ~ 1/r is from a log r potential that grows as r increases.
Not only that, but there must be a scale r0
i.e. VMach ~ logr/r0
therefore this new gravity potential “force” will be attractive for r < r0 and repulsive for r >  r0.
Has anyone else ever noticed this reversal from attractive to repulsive or am I the first?
However, since it’s a static field it must be from coherent states of off-mass-shell virtual gravitons - not real gravitons making real gravity waves. So the whole thing is peculiar to say the least.

Since we're looking at an instance of "things that make GR's toes curl", how about Jim's equation? It predicts that as the mass fluctuation approaches the rest mass value, there will be a term in the denominator (the proper mass density) which approaches zero transiently. Now, Jim says that all this is anchored in GR, so I offer this as another example. Unlike the Wilson-Wilson data, however, we don't have a clean measurement in the Machian case (yet).
