    Interesting, but, speculative. It admits to no apparent way to test the idea that the speed of light and the gravitational constant are not invariant. Having them vary in such a way as to be undetectable obviously invokes just another fine tuning problem to replace the ones we already face in the current model. I do not view that as progress.

    A model like this doesn't get interesting to me until it can predict the power spectrum of the CMB.
