Yes, this is the theoretical basis for why the principle of my Lorrey Drive
works. As the article states, one can generate thrust, while keeping in
compliance with the currently known laws of physics, without necessarily having
to expend reaction mass in the opposite direction from the thrust vector.

While John Campbell's early publicizing of Dean's Drive may have been premature,
as his device did have some serious failings which in the laboratory were able
to cancel out or mask the actual thrust produced, my own design I think shall be
found to overcome these shortcomings. I think that is will also be found that
Woodward's work with capacitors in testing this refinement of Mach's Principle
will confirm the work of Dr. TT Brown of Stanford back in the 30s-50s, and
validate the Beifeld Brown effect as a manfestation of this refinement of Mach'r
Principle in the Woodward effect.
