It seems quite ludicrous to me that we have no stability mechanism that explains why an expanding universe doesn't just blow itself apart, and even then, the entropy of our near-flat universe is much less than it should be, given any practical model of structure forming turbulence that occurs with expansion. Unless far from equilibrium dissipative structures, like us humans and black holes serve to somehow enhance the entropic process, thereby repaying the *most apparent* entropic debt. Surely, the configuration of our universe must follow the least action principle, so it can't be that difficult. I think that the real problem with this lies in the fact that modern science doesn't generally view the universe as being finite, bounded and closed, and it doesn't consider space to be a physically connected entity, because the uniform expansion of the whole will necessarily entail the most-even distribution of energy possible, **within the constraints of inherent imperfection**... if the universe is causaly bound and bounded. Quantum mechanics depends very much on Hamiltonian mechanics, and so it isn't inherently able to describe dissipative structuring. As I understand it, this can be done, however, by way of the "Lindblad equation", which derives that flatness acts as a natural damper that keeps the imbalanced universe from evolving inhomogeneously, so this is the most natural configuration... IF the universe is finite and closed... given inherent asymmetry in the energy. This will necessarily maximize the time that the expansion process takes, and that's what a flat universe accomplishes via anthropic structuring. I do believe that the AP is telling us that the universe is finite, closed and bounded... only nobody listens.
