Well yes, the Finnish cosmologist Kari Enqvist has used the swirling river analogy when saying that our observable universe might be a sort of a peaceful little eddy in an otherwise highly turbulent cosmos.
But as for your question, I'm not sure what you are asking exactly. What do you mean by "a present universe" here? The state initialized for the aforementioned observable universe at or around the time of the Big Bang event?
ETA: this post now makes very little sense because the OP has edited out his idea I was commenting on. It's not me this time, honestly
