The total energy of the universe has been calculated assuming that it is the sum of the contributions from the matter part and gravitational part. The calculations involve the use of Einstein pseudotensor. Calculations have been carried out in some specific examples of spacetime geometries. In some cases the total energy is indeed zero confirming previous results but in other cases the total energy is nonzero. So Rosen’s idea that the pseudotensorial calculations will lead to the result that the total energy of the universe is zero, is very much model dependent.
