I should mention that there are .wav files from the simulation at the end of the piece.

I do not think the big bang would make a sound, as sound requires a medium (e.g. air, water, solids) to travel, and during the big bang there was no are anywhere, just sub atomical particles.

Yes, and the question becomes, if the big bang happened and there was nobody there to hear it, did it make a sound?

Subatomic particles can vibrate, thus they can carry sound.

1. Yeah, sound doesn't travel in space.
2. The big bang was not actually a bang.
3. Sound only exists in consciousness present to perceive it.

I don't think his intent was to recreate what the Big Bang actually sounded like, but rather simulate an auditory model of the evolution of the universe.

This. Science 101
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

Waves travel through space, which is essentially nothing, indefinitely until they hit an object.
