We construct local probes in the static patch of Euclidean dS3 gravity. These probes are Wilson line operators, designed by exploiting the Chern-Simons formulation of 3D gravity. Our prescription uses non-unitary representations of so (4) ≃ su (2)L× su(2)R, and we evaluate the Wilson line for states satisfying a singlet condition. We discuss how to reproduce the Green’s functions of massive scalar fields in dS3, the construction of bulk fields, and the quasinormal mode spectrum. We also discuss the interpretation of our construction in Lorentzian signature in the inflationary patch, via SL(2, ℂ) Chern-Simons theory.
