Gravity and matter were always there. The only thing that happened at age 300,000 is that matter changed from plasma to gas, thus becoming transparent to light.

comment What is the most stable nuclide of an isobar?
Note that this is precisely the ambiguity that results in both Fe-56 (mass) and Ni-62 (binding energy) as being quoted as the most stable isotopes.
