This might be a silly question. But recently I got to know about CMB(cosmic microwave background) and this question is nagging me. During CMB , the universe was pretty small compared to now, so our current point of existence in space would have been very near the CMB, 13.7 bill yrs ago. So the photons from the CMB would have passed our point very early itself. Why is it passing our point now? Did the space between our point and CMB points increase faster than speed of light and because of this we are able to see CMB photons now?
