The Universe in Balanced Ternary

my submission to the 5K

The 5K ( is a yearly contest that asks the folk of the web to cram as much interesting stuff into 5120 bytes as they can. My entry didn't make it into the finals, but it pleased some folks. I have made some modifications to it since. It is still under 5K, but takes up more space than that on a hard drive because it's 29 files, most under 40 bytes.
