The Science of the Divine Utterances

There's quite a bit of discussion in Kabbalah and Hassidus of the Divine Utterances (G-d said ... and it was) that created (and are creating and sustaining) the universe.

But wait, sound in space?

New Scientist: Big bang sound waves explain galaxy clustering

Sound waves that roared through space after the big bang left behind a subtle imprint in the way galaxies are clustered today, reveal two major studies.

New Scientist: Universe started with hiss, not bang

For those worried that you cannot have sounds in space, that is true today, but it was not so in the Universe's infancy...the Universe was small and dense enough that sound waves could indeed travel through it - so efficiently, in fact, that they moved at about half the speed of light.
