I must apologize for my sloppy editing before posting. I did find one other answer which seems to address the issue with a subtle difference. If Zonneveld is also correct, the question then becomes if "gravitaional potential energy" is the same as "stress energy tensor" in this context. Why would he consider those conditions as not energetic in themselves, even as they are formed by stress and energy? Indulge my curiosity one more time. Can the example of the curved road be used at all? The curvature was formed by application of energy and may be considered a tensor in the road, but is it energetic in and of itself?
