I have been wondering this ever since I was in elementary school and I am hoping for an answer.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The time dilation equation for general relativity is time dilation=e^(gh/(c^2)). This applies to any object that has mass, and I am wondering if it also applies to the Big Bang (which has mass).

I am not looking for the value of time dilation. I am looking for a variable value of h, which is the vertical height from the mass to the object. Obviously, nothing exists out of the Big Bang, but there has to be time dilation. If there is nothing outside the Big Bang, then there cannot be a value of h.

Can someone give me an explaination?

Thanks in advance
