Thanks for taking a genuine interest in my work!
Unfortunately I do not know all the details about the TMT as I do not fully understand the exact nature of matter and electricity. In fact I think, no one does. Tesla understood a great deal about electricity by comparing electricity to things that we do comprehend.
First of all you must recognize that Tesla says electricity behaves like an incompressible fluid but is caused by a gaseous (and thus compressible) medium.
The incompressible fluid:
when you add charges on one end of a long conductor, almost instantly you see the effect at the other end of the conductor.
The gaseous medium:
this is best demonstrated by the experiments Tesla showed during his lectures from 1891-1893. Also when you look at a conductor, you'll see positive (metal) ions with free electrons in between. If you forget about the ions, you'll see a bunch of freely moving electrons, exactly like molecules in a gas. Some may argue that these electrons are electrically charged and repel eachother, but this is largely shielded by the ions. So these free electrons behave very much like an ideal gas, and thus the ideal gas law should apply.

Electricity now seen as a gas, must have a pressure (voltage), quantity (charge) but also a temperature. This is strangely not recognized by modern science, but by its very definition it must be there, namely the average kinetic energy of these electrons.
The electrons are moving, so they have a velocity. They also have a mass, so you can calculate their kinetic energy (E= mv²/2).
Now, imagine a conductor which has a certain charge, then it has a certain voltage (calculated from its self-capacitance). If I add more charge, the voltage (pressure) rises. But if the charges were to move more violently, the voltage rises also.
Exactly as in a gas.
So forget about all you've been told about "cold electricity", I think that is a different concept. In stead just think of electricity as a gas. A gas has a temperature...
It is really that simple.

Interplanetary and interstellar space may be very high vacuum, but there are still planets, comets, dust, plasma clouds, stars etc. So there is matter in every direction.

This is the most difficult part. Yes, I do believe the bernoulli effect plays an important role. But as we are talking about electrified particles, the whole thing becomes much more complicated, and electric and magnetic fields enter the equation. Much can be learned from recent studies in lightning. (see Martin Uman and stepped leader)
Tesla clearly believed that a lightning strike collects energy from its environment, instead of just discharging a cloud. And it is this process that he intended to copy.
BTW, the discharge = the "cold hole" or "heat sink"

No energy multiplication takes place here. It is a storage and distribution method. So yes, the amplitude of the Earth wave increases, but that happens only because you put energy into it. The energy that you used and extracted. Now since the TMT coils produced this signal, they are also perfectly tuned for receiving the same. And thus a regenerative loop is created and no (or very little) energy gets wasted.
An echo is not a standing wave, but where there is an echo a standing wave can be created.
By connecting another coil tuned at the same frequency to the Earth (anywhere), a current will start flowing through this coil, producing a magnetic effect that can be picked up by a secondary coil, just as in a transformer. The output of this secondary coil can by used.

The energy gain comes solely from the discharge and the conductor onto which this discharge takes place. The discharge cools the electricity, so very cold electricity arrives at the anode. Both the discharge itself and the anode (the cupola of the Wardenclyffe tower) will consequently attract heat-energy from the surrounding medium, thereby ionizing the immediate surrounding air.

The system is rather complex, you've come a long way in understanding it.
I hope this helps.

Ernst.
