Main Question or Discussion Point

In the following video Penrose states that the Universe was so special and organized at its initial state the figure describing it would be "at least" 10^123.

Begin at 4:50


Has this figure or any other figure been confirmed? Where can I go to find out if this is true or not.

I found this: http://accelconf.web.cern.ch/accelco...S/THESPA01.PDF [Broken]
Has this been confirmed?

Why would you presume the universe had an 'initial' state? Do you believe the phenomenon of existence is the result of cause and effect or is cause and effect a function of the phenomenon of existence?

Well I tend to lean toward the former, however, at this time I'm just interested in knowing if Penrose's claims are true or not.
