It's a lovely and terrifying picture: enormous galaxies roll themselves up
out of dust at the dawn, the compressed mass at their cores igniting into
an infalling cascade of black holes, the orbital surround of the entire
central catastrophe *blazing* with quasar ferocity until most of the
feedstuff has been swallowed or hurled away. Then the galaxies calm down a
little, leaving a more benign arena for next generation stars, and planets,
and the likes of us... If there were any early sophont arrivers in that
first, comparatively closely compacted era, they'd have lived (with immense
difficulty) in a sky ocean of raging actinic light not seen since the Bang
