Explain how the phenomenon of an explosion might possibly occur in the really real world without making sound. Use any mishmash of physics, quantum theory and whatnot.
Best I can come up with:
A standard explosion is created through conventional or nuclear means. There is a device triggered concurrently which creates an intense, although very temporary, gravitational force. As the explosion moves outward in a shockwave, the gravitational force is equal to (and in the opposite direction of) the expanding shockwave. Eventually the momentum of the shockwave is slowed and overcome by the temporary artificial gravitational force, and at the moment that the expanding shockwave would reverse and collapse, the gravitational force evaporates. Anyone just outside the sphere of destruction can see the explosion, but feels and hears nothing.
