In a couple of short essays available online at http://www.spacetime.nu I argue that time is actually a discontinuous manifestation of elastic oscillations of the fabric of the universe.
The Big Bang would presumably be the event that induced the oscillations.
This also reconciles Newtons absolute time with the relativity of Einstein as well as with simultaneity, which at the end of the day leads up to a possible explanation of timedilation.
