Press the red button again, then open the green book. Listen to Atrus, then, from the two half notes that you found earlier, make sure all of the Marker Switches are up, and lower the one by the dock. Take the Page, enter the Green Book, and give the page to Atrus. Watch the ending.
You can skip most of the plot by only performing the necessary steps to get the final page. You will need to set the clock tower to 2:40 to raise a Marker Switch, but all other marker switches do not require any special puzzles to complete.
The bad endings are possible simply by adding the final blue or red page to the appropriate book.
You can only explore this bonus age if you play realMyst, the realtime 3D remake of Myst. All other PC versions (including Masterpiece editions) do not offer any way to enter or explore this age, but a static 2D version (like the original ages) is included in the PSP release.
Return to Myst after Atrus is back. Read the book on the floor. Enter the holograph room at the dock. Enter number 40 at the panel and walk behind the projector.

Turn the round button on this picture so that the smaller angle is at the left. Walk to the rocketship dock. A new entrance will have appeared, you can find it if you walk down the hill at the left of the dock. Enter the passage and find the code panel. Enter the combination Atrus wrote in his book about Rime: 2735. The machine will lift. Go to the library and find the Rime linking book in the pedestal in the center of the room. Enter Rime.

The right button controls the color. Find the red button at left and push it. Read the journal and go down without turning the elevator back by pressing the red button on the right. Go to the door at the end of the passage and notice the crystal combination which is written down on the paper on the desk at the left. Enter the combination into the age observator - note that the color of the center crystal is turquoise and not blue. If you do it correctly, you will see a picture of Riven. You can return to Myst using the linking book in the cabin.
