Contrary to general relativity, the Maxwell‐like theory of gravitation implies negative gravitational energy in vacuum and in gravitational waves. In order to really retrieve Newton's theory in a first approximation, general relativity should exhibit this negativeness. For this purpose, a new pseudoscalar density is derived from the usual Lagrangian of gravitation by subtraction of a divergence. In agreement with the expansion of the universe, this approach supports the “explosive” formation of galaxies and the existence of jet streams apparently emitted from black holes.
Keywords: negative gravitational energy, jet streams, “explosive” galaxy formation, expansion of the universe
