Why a Background Persistent Field Must Exist in the Extended Theory of General Relativity
In the framework of an Extended General Relativity based on a semi-affine connection, we have postulated the existence of a background persistent field filling the physical vacuum and affecting the neighboring masses. In a holonomic scheme, the original Weyl formulation for generalized variational fields leads to the energy-momentum tensor of a perfect fluid in the Einstein field equation with a massive source. Since both the Weyl and EGR connections are shown to be equivalent in a particular way, the perfect fluid tensor with its pressure appears as a Riemannian transcription of the EGR massive tensor, with its surrounding active background field. This result would lend support to our assertion regarding the persistent field within the EGR formulation.
