The following document is to prepare an analysis on if the cosmological constant is a vacuum field. Candidates for how to analyze this issue come up in terms of brane theory, modified treatments of WdM theory (pseudo time component added) and/ or how to look at squeezing of vacuum states, as initially coherent semi classical constructions, or string theory versions of coherent states. The article presents a thought experiment if there is a non zero graviton mass, and at the end, in the conclusion states experimental modeling criteria which may indicate if a non zero graviton mass is measurable, which would indicate the existence, de facto of a possible replacement for DE, based upon non zero mass gravitons, and indications for a replacement for a cosmological constant.
