... On point 1 (which was,of course, about "inflation", not "infaltion"), it follows that only a tiny fraction of the energy of the universe would have been contained in the first loops, with the rest being added as the collapsing body generating them continues to collapse.

I know this is different from the received wisdom that inflation is due to "gravity being late separating from the other forces", but I think I prefer my version, as it seems less of an arbitrary assumption.
