Mathematically-speaking, a bubble (untwist or twist-out) is a twistor with non-negative potential. It is the opposite of a vacuum.


Notes (+):

+ Both bubbles and vacua output the same absolute value.

+ Whereas a deflaton will depress every point in its vector field, an inflaton will blowup a function at a single point.
