Not that you were there, or nothin', but microseconds after the
big bang, there was light.
"The Big Bang theory predicts that the early universe was a very
hot place. One second after the Big Bang, the temperature of the

sea of neutrons, protons, electrons, anti-electrons (positrons),
photons and neutrinos."
