**3 .Rhysmonic Cosmology Basics ~**

It was my original intention to include this in a revision of my monograph, Rhysmonic Cosmology. Then, I planned to write an extended Cosmology Note on this subject complete with many references by that was not practical, thus, this Note is written as a matter-of-fact essay. It is being written ‘off-the-top’ of my head, but it the only way I can convey my concepts to you in this (possible last) Cosmology Note.

Rhysmonic Cosmology got started in 1959 when Dover Publications issued a reprint of Max Planck’s ‘Theory of Heat Radiation’. That book contained a short aside in which Planck mentioned that Universal Constants could be used to develop a system of Natural Units. It was recognized that such a system could possibly reflect on the basic structure of our universe, especially since it was noted that the natural units of length over time (a velocity) agreed very closely with the experimentally determined velocity of light in a vacuum. The Planck Natural Units and their many derivations are thus the basis of my Rhysmonic work.

Before continuing with the basic concepts, as it could apply to extraction of energy directly from the rhysmoid (the aether if you wish), let us look at some of the philosophy. I have mentioned third dimensions and fourth dimensions in the past, but may have been using those terms in special connotations.

The Third Dimension (in my view) is the Universe that is revealed to us by our senses, using at times instrumentation which could aid our sense (such as microscopes, telescopes, computers, various meters, etc.). In general, this is a 3-dimensional Cartesian-coordinate (Euclidian) universe as seen by our senses — the universe we all know, a wonderful universe of stars, planets, earth, people, animals, vegetation, etc. The time element here is related to our sense of past, present, and future, and is governed by our various clocks. The vast majority of people view and live only in this third dimensional universe.

The fourth dimensional universe is the fundamental structure, i.e., a substratum, which underlies the third dimensional universe. It is revealed to us only by our minds in conjunction with our senses and instruments. This fact implies that our minds may be non-corporeal and thus may function in a special version of the fourth dimension. Thus, this fourth dimension could be compared to the abode of spirit or soul as used in many religions. However, the human brain may be looked at as a most sophisticated computer which is corporeal, but which can be programmed and controlled by the mind in the performance of various human functions, including the study of mind and spirit; however, this is beyond the scope of this Note.

Rhysmonic Cosmology attempts to describe the structure of the substratum (aether) since it is not knowable directly by our senses. It is fourth dimensional, while it is yet describable by the three dimensions of Descartes, those dimensions are also directly interconnected in a universal time element, thus making it four-dimensional in nature. It is also mechanical in nature and thus describable in terms of a Length (a distance), a Mass (particle), and a Time (duration). Therefore, L.M. and T, as well as their many derivatives, could be used to fully describe such a fourth dimensional universe. I have attempted to do so in Rhysmonic Cosmology and the structure as revealed there has led me to many predictions as well as experimental verifications of the theory. Although this paper is limited to the energy-extraction effects, some asides and connotations which elaborate on the theory, will be stated.

The Rhysmonic Theory in all its details are available in my Monograph (1) and many articles and Notes. I include some illustrations from the Monograph and point out more explicitly the nature of that rhysmonic structure which will enable energy extraction directly from that structure.

**1. Rhysmonic Structure ~**

Rhysmonic structure, i.e., aether, consists of only a postulated extremely minute ‘particle’ which I now have termed a rhysmon (rather than originally a gravitational particle, graviton, now used by others in many other contexts). This particle forms a matrix structure which is the very fabric of our sensible universe. The matrix is fully describable in terms of Planck’s Natural Units for mechanics. See Table 1.
