Bade me inflate the parson's gown,
That went not up, nor yet came down?
Avitor!

Or touch it with thy colour and perfume.

This absorbed pre-adjacent vacuum is emitted to become the added space for the inflation in the inflationary universe whose space-time is separated from the pre-inflationary universe. This added space is the adjacent vacuum.

In terms of elementary particles, the added space for the inflation is used to dilute (fractionalize) the high mass mixed 9-branes. The diluted products are the hierarchical mixed branes from 9 to 3 whose masses decrease with the space-time dimension numbers as in the dimensional hierarchy .

This absorbed pre-adjacent vacuum is emitted to become the added space for the inflation in the inflationary universe. In the inflationary universe, this added space is the adjacent vacuum.
The vacuum interpretation of quantum mechanics and the vacuum universe
During the inflation, this added space for the inflation is used to dilute (franctionalize) the high mass boundary mixed 9-branes into the low mass hierarchical mixed branes.
