  • We extend the worldline measure for pocket formation in eternal inflation to allow for time-ordered bubble formation. Such a time-ordering is equivalent to imposing a preferred time-slicing on the 'parent' de Sitter space. Using this measure, we describe a covariant version of the youngness paradox and show that the youngness paradox is a gauge artifact if the parent spacetime is an unbroken de Sitter space, due to the lack of an explicit time-ordering for the bubble nucleation events. We then… CONTINUE READING
