The question as to whether it would be possible to
create a universe in a laboratory has been already
raised. Farhi and Guth concluded that "to create
conditions in a small region of space which would
give rise to a new universe [...] would require an
energy density that is far too high to be provided
by any known technology".

a Universe in the Laboratory", Physics Letters,
