Principle / quantities / nature / natural constants / Barrow: principles do not reflect the value of the fundamental constants - instead e.g. only the fact that the energy is proportional to the mass - but not the value of the proportionality constant - progress / Barrow: would be the discovery of new constants or the fact that an assumed constant is no constant at all.
