Abstract

We develop a semi-classical mechanism by which the weak anisotropies of the Mixmaster Universe are suppressed. The volume of the Universe is regarded as an external-like observer and a clear probabilistic interpretation of the wave function naturally arises. We show that near the cosmological singularity all values of the anisotropies are almost equally favored but, once large volume regions are investigated, the closed FRW Universe configuration is deeply privileged.
