The scene opens on a galaxy slowly rotating to the sound of many heavenly bodies, each with its own frequency, rising and falling as the arms of the galaxy slowly rotate past the camera, which zooms in on one of the arms, then to a gas field, then to a star and its environs of gasses of varying colors and densities, then to the sun side of Jupiter, where dust is coalescing. As it densifies, some of the areas begin glowing through the heating process colors until it turns red hot and the particles begin flowing toward the center as molten lava draining into a basin of molten iron. The flowing motion starts the core turning, slowly at first, then faster as the bulk of molten lava grows larger. As densification proceeds, brown particles begin forming into a coating over the melting center, then blue water vapors are sucked in over the brown layer, then more distant brown particles are sucked in over the water layer, which is gradually turning to white steam, but as the brown outer layer is drawn toward the core, it compresses the steam back into super-heated water. The outer brown layer gradually sends columns down through the water to connect with the brown covering between the water and the molten core, continuing to compact on the surface as it does so.
