I am confused about what the components of the stress energy tensor actually represent and how they are representative of energy in spacetime.
I have seen multiple questions on here, and have re-read the Wikipedia page many times, they all explain the tensor as; energy density for the 00 component; momentum along the edges and finally the stress tensor in the middle, with pressure along the diagonal. The explanation accompanying this is usually something like- each component represents a different type of energy and they all share the same units for energy density.
Alternatively, I have seen explanations, specifically Susskinds General Relativity lecture 9 and other questions on this site, which talk about the components representing energy density, energy flux, momentum density or momentum flux, and which one is determined by the indicies of the tensor.
My question is, which of the explanations is used, or is it some combination of the two that I just don't understand?
