An interesting idea is that the universe could be spontaneously created from nothingbut no rigorousproof has been given. In this paperwe present such a proof based on the analytic solutions of the Wheeler-DeWitt equation (WDWE). Explicit solutions of the WDWE for the special operator ordering factorp= -2 (or 4) show thatonce a small true vacuum bubble is created by quantum fluctuations of themetastable false vacuumit can expand exponentially no matter whether the bubble is closed,flat,or open… Expand
