What you see here, are not stars, nebulae, or galaxies, every single point of light is a Cluster, it's a bunch of galaxies gathered. And the bigger ones are Superclustes, these are a bunch of... bunches of galaxies!
In the movie we travel a distance for which light would need more than 2.4 billion years to travel.

The Millenium Simulation used more than 10 billion particles to trace the evolution of the matter distribution in a cubic region of the Universe over 2 billion light-years on a side. It kept busy the principal supercomputer at the Max Planck Society's Supercomputing Centre in Garching, Germany for more than a month. By applying sophisticated modelling techniques to the 25 Tbytes of stored output.

I mean that every single thing you see here, is not a random light particle, in a random place, it was calculated by a super computer.
I edited the video, adding a widescreen visualisation, some audio and video contrast.
The song is "Hopioppolla" by the the Icelandic band
Sigur Rós from their 2005 album Takk.

And personally, after watching this, I still don't know why some people still preaching we are alone in this vast and breathtaking universe...

Finally, I want you to check out these images, they show us how small we are and how this simulation looks more far away from this view:
