I am greatly interested in the whole BB phenomenon. So far, in all of the sources, both popular and scientific, that I have found, there has been no mention of the relation of proximity to the singularity, containing all of the mass/energy of the universe, to the flow of time itself. Since we know that time slows in a gravitational field so much that near the event horizon of a black hole, it "stops altogether" (relatively speaking, of course), what about time near the BB in its various early stages of development?

Guys, a little assistance here if you please? Astrophysics/cosmology is not my main scientific field.
