Let's see the Vilenkin link.
It's not a link, I'm afraid; just some notes from a good-old-fashioned book.
With any luck I might have a half-hour to sort the notes out now.

What is (an example of) "energy balance"?
There's two kinds of energy; positive and negative. Negative energy comes from gravitational potential energy and positive energy comes from particles.
Perhaps you are seeing my point, that there is no chance of nothingness
There never was nothing.
BBT with Inflation, and QFT at the barest level of investigation, both are consistent with the formation of matter out of “bubble convergences”.
Photons/light are defined to never be 'at rest', but the way I naively look at it myself I allow for the possibility of two 'photons' propagating aside each other, and then define them as being 'at rest' with each other
Are you thinking of transformations Bill?
The question to ask is what was the energy balance during this process and how does it relate to the current state of the universe?
What's the charge density of an electron?
Things move. We know that. If all particles were entangled by being connected together then all their fields must be connected together. This means that all the forces would be evenly distributed everywhere. So that no impetus can be given to anything to make it move. This can apply to many worlds, extra dimensions and a host of other propositions. The imagination can be a dangerous thing when unfettered.
how can space exist in a wormhole when it allows you to step around space
how can time exist when entry and exit is virtually instantaneous
What does "+ve energy" etc mean? I never saw that term before.
And its a matter of fact that if the universe is an open one, which it appears to be more and more, then there's an infinite amount of matter in the universe.
The total amount of energy in the universe is zero.
I think I tend to move my mouth more than normal when I think of words myself (enough for others to notice).
