I learned something new in this edition, that I vitally need a glossary to organize the concepts that to keep them logically sound and not contradictory.
I even looked up the term "glossary" in the dictionary to see if I was using the correct term and it says that glossary is a list of difficult and technical terms.
Now the term I am interested in today is the term restmass and the point of the Glossary is to keep me, or at least try to keep me from not making contradictory terms and terms that end up as deadend alleys or terms that lead me astray of true physics.
Now usually, physicists do not keep their own glossaries and that is a pitiful shame because a glossary can allow a more clarity of thought.
Now I looked in Wikipedia of their definition of restmass, and I was rather disappointed, for they call it several things  invariant mass, intrinsic mass, proper mass. And after reading their entry, I was no more clear of what restmass means than before I started. Many of Wikipedia's science entries are written by some philosopher type rather than a experimental physicist type who would have a better handle on clarity.
Now in New Physics, all of physics is derived from all the facts of chemistry and then apply the 4 Symmetrical Maxwell Equations. So all of Physics comes from these 5 items:
1) all of Chemistry 2) through 5) the 4 symmetrical Maxwell Equations
Now we need a definition of restmass for physics and we have to look to the Maxwell Equations to see how the Maxwell Equations gives us restmass.
And what we focus on is the Gauss's law of electricity which is the Coulomb's law in equivalent form. And since all of physics is these 5 items then the force of gravity must be the tiniest amount of the Coulomb force. In other words, gravity is a Coulomb force, only the tiniest amount of the Coulomb force. Gravity has masses whereas Coulomb force has electric charge. So here is where we can make progress on a proper physics definition of "restmass". It is related to charge but can be smaller than unit charge, since Coulomb force is about 10^40 stronger than gravity force. So here we have an opportunity to really define restmass in a clear and concise definition, by referring to gravity as the same as Coulomb force.
Now in this glossary, I defined charge as being a geometry, and magnetic monopole as being a pole of either elliptic or hyperbolic geometry, and further yet I defined spin as the direction of motion of the poles. So I gave a geometrical definition of charge, magnetic monopole, and spin. Now i need to keep that habit steady in defining restmass as a feature of geometry. So what possible geometry feature can I ascribe to restmass? Well, if we look at speed, whether a longitudinal wave or transverse wave or a particle in free motion, we see speed as a linear function in 3rd dimension. We see poles and spin as 2nd dimensional and we see the Maxwell Equations in large part as cross sections of 2nd dimension. We do not see 3rd dimension in the Maxwell Equations other than to say that the bar magnet is a 3rd dimension object or that the Maxwell Equations take place in 3rd dimension. We do not see volume in the Maxwell Equations and thus we do not need volume, except for the fact that the Coulomb law is the force of gravity where restmass is involved.
So this makes me think that restmass is volume in 3rd dimension. And further yet, that particles with restmass must have a volume whereas particles with no rest mass like the photon has no volume.
Now the flow of electricity is a surface phenomenon, so electricity is not bothered by lack of volume.
Now it is easy to picture the volume in Elliptic geometry since it is a sphere with its inside or a ellipsoid with its interior. It is more difficult to picture a Hyperbolic surface with its interior.
Now Euclidean geometry is easily pictured with 3rd dimension and volumes involved. And the neutron is a 0 charged particle and so it is Euclidean, but when in free space it decays in about 10 minutes and when in the nucleus of an atom, the neutron is proton, nuclear electron, neutrino. For the photon, it is 0 charge and so it is Euclidean and is stable in free space. And the photon is both particle and wave for it satisfies the Double Slit Experiment. So this would suggest that the photon as particle must have volume of Euclidean geometry and thus have restmass. But the photon travels at the speed of light and so it cannot have restmass and thus cannot have volume. The electron is 1 charge and Hyperbolic geometry and can travel almost the speed of light but not at the speed of light and so the electron must have volume or restmass. The proton has volume and cannot travel at the speed of light and must have restmass.
So here I am working up a nice definition of restmass. One which involves volume of 3rd dimension and ties together gravity force with Coulomb force. For it is definitely sure that charge is involved with Coulomb, so that restmass must be involved with Gravity and that gravity must be tied to charge.
So I am making very good progress here on restmass. So good that tonight I have found a possible lead in to deriving the muon restmass ratio compared to electron which is about 105/0.5 = 210.
