We all know that mass slows down the rate of time, right? So, given this, did time pass slower at the beginnings of the universe, since all matter was clumped closer together? If so, does that have ramifications for our estimates of the age of the universe?

I also wonder how much mass it takes to have an effect on time. Does a single atom slow time down?
