Another new one. Thinking about the big bang. Occurs to me that it happened in absolute silence since there was no one there to hear it. Strictly speaking there wasn't even silence. That's something we invented. Of course, now we can hear the big bang as noise picked up by a satellite. Which is interesting. The sound of creation is noise. Anyway, this is the kind of stuff that sometimes passes through my mind when I make these pictures. The moral of this story is: when thinking of the beginning (or any of the other "big questions") it's best to keep an open mind. Otherwise, you'll be pretending to know what you don't. And you'll miss out on some interesting thoughts and experiences.
