  • We investigate the distribution of energy density in a stationary self-reproducing inflationary universe. We show that the main fraction of volume of the Universe in a state with a given density $\ensuremath{\rho}$ at any given moment of proper time $t$ is concentrated near the centers of deep exponentially wide spherically symmetric wells in the density distribution. Since this statement is very surprising and counterintuitive, we perform our investigation by three different analytical methods… CONTINUE READING
