We study the SL(2) transformation properties of spherically symmetric perturbations of the Bertotti-Robinson universe and identify an invariant μ that characterizes the backreaction of these linear solutions. The only backreaction allowed by Birkhoff’s theorem is one that destroys the AdS2× S2 boundary and builds the exterior of an asymptotically flat Reissner-Nordström black hole with Q=M1−μ/4. We call such backreaction with boundary condition change an anabasis. We show that the addition of linear anabasis perturbations to Bertotti-Robinson may be thought of as a boundary condition that defines a connected AdS2×S2. The connected AdS2 is a nearly-AdS2 with its SL(2) broken appropriately for it to maintain connection to the asymptotically flat region of Reissner-Nordström. We perform a backreaction calculation with matter in the connected AdS2× S2 and show that it correctly captures the dynamics of the asymptotically flat black hole.
