In this talk, we compare two states: the stationary state in stochastic inflation and the ground state
wave function of the universe. We already know that, for the potential with a static field, two pictures give the same probability distribution. Here, we go beyond this limit and assert that two pictures indeed have deeper relations. We illustrate a simple example so that there is a corresponding instanton if a certain field value has a non-zero probability in the statistical side. This instanton should be complex-valued. Furthermore, the compact manifold in the Euclidean side can be interpreted as a coarse-graining grid size in the stochastic universe. Finally, we summarize the recent status and possible applications.
