I always theorized that time bounced back-and-forth in both
directions. After time flows from the big bang to the big crunch, it
would bounce back and flow the other way The big crunch played
backwards becomes the big bang for the next iteration of the
universe. Our big bang was the previous big crunch likewise reversed.

I have absolutely no evidence for this view.
