Abstract

We consider the energy of the Universe, from the pseudo-tensor point of view (Berman, M.Sc. thesis, 1981). We find zero values, when the calculations are well-done. The doubts concerning this subject are clarified, with the novel idea that the justification for the calculation lies in the association of the equivalence principle, with the nature of co-motional observers, as demanded in Cosmology. In Sect. 4, we give a novel calculation for the zero-total energy result.
