-- this seemed to Yakov more agonizing than anything, and he longed to lengthen out the time somehow, so as to endure this shame not now, but later, in the future.

He thought of the young man with the wasted arm; he imagined the man sitting where Mr Mundy was now, being told, 'Love fills you,' being told, 'You must not fear,' and willing and willing his arm to lengthen, to flesh itself out.
Вспомнился сухорукий парень; Дункан представил, как тот сидит на месте мистера Манди, слышит: «вас наполняет любовь, бояться не нужно» и желает, чтобы его рука обросла плотью и вытянулась.

It is easy to understand what this means: it shows us that a lowering of the payments exacted on the peasant’s land would arouse a tendency to lengthen the intervals between re-allotments.
Смысл этого явления очень понятен: оно показывает нам, что уменьшение лежащих на крестьянской земле платежей вызвало бы стремление к удлинению сроков переделов.

On the other hand, if the expansion time scale were somehow lengthened, the only effect would be that more neutrons would decay into protons before nucleosynthesis occurs, so that less helium would be produced.
Наоборот, если бы временная шкала расширения каким-то образом удлинилась, единственным эффектом был бы распад большого числа нейтронов и соответственно образование меньшего количества гелия.
