Yes, that has been the conclusion of a recent discussion: to ask "why" is legitimate, but it simply means focusing on the details of a process, getting your hands dirty with the mechanics.
I have often complained, with regard to a number of Special Relativity issues, that the standard solution simply resorts to Einstein's postulates: this is so and so because the Principle of Relativity so requires, for example. I thus cried: that amounts to describing how nature works,...

I think fields like Higgs (or just Higgs fields it selves) could be responsible for time dilation and length contraction. Let’s argue (I have not studied physics, but this area is also logically thinking, I studied mathematics, so my sentences are not like a physicist writes/talks). Some graphs are added for illustrations.
Science is just to find the laws in nature (that laws exist already for billions of years), nothing more, so in the meantime it is just waiting that somebody understand...
