Not true, IF the field is actually doing as advertised then the effect is
equal upon every atom of the frog at the same time. It is, in fact
weightless. It is NOT standing upon a plate isolated from the field, and the
plate is levitating; which is equivalent to what you are saying.

The problem still remains that we can't do it with humans, and I'm not yet
ready to bet that it is actually doing what they say it is.
