Since i can't edit my post no more, one more question: Do we know that these quantum fluctuations and virtual particle-antiparticle pair, which I guess most of the time "negate" each other in any measurable time, actually did amount into giving birth to the whole universe? Or it is hypothesized that it is possible that such thing can be done, given practically infinite time? I think there's difference between the two, proving that something actually happened and arguing that something very improbable could have happened if we wait long enough.

I guess I'll have to buy the book when it comes out though :)
