So, the theory goes:

The more distant the observed object, the greater its redshift, and the older it is.

If I had a sensitive enough observing device - I seem to be being told here - I could see right back to the big-bang, and prove it's the big bang by a sufficiantly shifted spectrum.

OK

I have a fabourite teddy bear. If I'm diligent and patient enough I could maybe observe the very atoms of my teddy bear at the moment of their creation in the big bang.

The problem is - those atoms which are destined to one day make up my teddy bear, appear to be rushing away from it at incredible speeds.

Does my teddy bear really exist?

Is there a way to bring together my teddy bear and its embryonic material, and so give it its mass back?
