Re: pseudo tensors
It's beyond me. Can you simplify it some? What is negative energy compared to positive energy in the universe mean? Dark matter, dark energy etc?

Do some physicists say all the matter energy cancels eachother out therefore zero?

Not quite. They say the positive energy content of the universe is essentially cancelled out by the negative energy content of the universe.

Ok, but there is still energy right?

Im just not sure the theme is supposed to be, what the thread means. Zero energy or infinate energy, what means what?
