The Hutchison effect is possibly 1% luck of hitting correct resonance frequency of metal to soften it one time in his life and 99% fakery in my
opinion. The "evidence" he has include a piece of wood that has softened into metal and some rock like things that you can measure for electrical
current, which he claims comes from the ZPF, or zero point field.
His buzzword laden technobabble is not coherent nor based on any actual science as far as I can tell. At the same time, he has admitted faking the
levitation in his videos with strings, and others have pointed out that he could fake the rest with magnets and upside down tables.
Regarding the 1% luck, I believe that could also be fakery as well if he happened across his "wood into metal" chunk of "proof" after some kind of
vehicle crash where the cause was incredible force and imagined how he might convince people it was caused by his own experiments.
IMO, the rock like thing is most likely one of a known type of ore mixture that creates a natural "nuclear" battery. A source of electricity that,
while usually at least slightly dangerous to humans produces electricity from the high beta decay of certain isotopes.
As far as "propellantless propulsion" relating to anti-gravity, think of it this way. The James Woodward theory and experiment works as follows:
1. You can not (or not in any known science), change the time averaged mass of an object, but you can create perterbations that depend on the rate of
acceleration. Think of that for a sec. It means if you are not only accelerating, but increasing your rate of acceleration, oscillating between
braking and accelerating at very high speeds, that the mass can change and adjust, not affecting it's time averaged mass.
2. In order to get sufficient change in acceleration of particles, James Woodward uses "flux capacitors", really. He accelerates particles using
high voltage AC input into very high end capacitors. This creates a mass fluctuation in the capacitors.
3. In order to leverage that to generate thrust, he uses a push/pull technique, push it in one direction when it's light, then pull it in the other
direction when it has more mass and inertia, generating thrust in the direction away from the heavy push, but leaving the total mass of the system
constant over time. To get the speeds required to make the experiment measurable, he used piezoelectric crystals, which unfortunately heat up quickly
when moving that fast. I believe he may have also gone to an entirely piezoelectric approach at some point.
His approach is actually based on Mach's Principle as well as an intertia model derived from Wheeler-Feynman Absorber theory. It means theoretically,
things that look like circuit boards could generate thrust in a direction, from inside a vehicle or ship. If you had one producing thrust upwards, it
could make an object hover, or float. Also, as long as you can generate electricity and direct your thrust, you could accelerate from your current
speed to a faster one in any direction, in air or in space.
