The brutino is the smallest thing in the universe. See
Figure 1. Everything is made of brutinosand nothing else.
The brutinos make up a rare gas which pervades the
universe, and which extends indefinitely in all directions. This gas
is called the ether. Figure 2 shows the gas. Every cubic meter of
the universe has 10
83
brutinos in it. These particles move at a
speed of 4x10
9
m/s (roughly ten times the speed of light), and they
have a mass of 10
-66
kg. The particles move and collide. All forces
in the universe are the result of repeated collisions of the brutinos.
The ether possesses a vast amount of energy. The energy in each
cubic meter of space is

This is enough energy to supply the energy used on Earth for
millennia. Nature, however, only lets us use a small amount of the
energy. Getting useful energy out of the ether is akin to getting
usable energy out of the atmosphere. The ether is different, which

we will explain later, and we will show how all of our usable energy
is derived from the ether.
The ether density is 50 trillion times that of lead. One
would immediately wonder how we move in a sea of such a large
density. When you learn what matter is it will become clear how
things move without impediment in the dense ether.

, the average number of
meters between brutinos.
The brutinos translate with a distribution of speeds, some
very fast and some very slow. Figure 3 shows the distribution. The
most probable speed, v
mp
, corresponds to the highest ordinate
shown in the figure. The average of the speeds, v
m
, is also shown,
and is slightly larger than the most probable speed. The speed v
r
is the square root of the sum of the squares of the speeds of all
particles divided by the number of particles. This speed

is the RMS speed and is

The RMS speed is always greater than the mean speed, unless the
speeds are the same.
Complete condensations of these brutinos occur randomly,
but continually, and produce neutrinos. The neutrino takes in
mass at the rate

of 10
-2
kg/s. The neutrino is defined by its sonic
sphere, which is an almost spherical surface at which brutinos flow
into the neutrino at their speed of sound. The radius of this sphere
is approximately 10
-15
m. The neutrinos form with masses which
vary by several orders of magnitude, with right- and left-handed
twist. They expel the incoming mass out of two fine streams, one
directed forward at velocity v
r
and one directed aft at velocity v
m
.
The neutrino develops a thrust of 1.43 meganewtons. It produces
power of 1.43×10
