That's one way of looking at it, but what I meant to convey is that the
force of gravity has a certain definite strength in this universe.  Must it
be this way for all possible observers or not?  We have a choice of saying
either gravity is weak or that masses are really small, but either way you
approach it, one of those two must be considered a property of our physical

Have you heard of Heim theory?  It is little known since most of his
publications were only published in German, but one of the claimed results
is derivation of particle masses based on just the Gravitational constant,
Planck's constant, vacuum permittivity and permeability.
