Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question concerning General relativity.

I am not familiar with tensor mathematics but as I understand lasting deformation can be achieved by applying two counteracting forces to material in different places.

If tensors are used to describe curvature of spacetime and one of the forces result from presence of matter and radiation what is the counteracting force that holds spacetime in place?
