I've just skimmed this article.

J. Richard Gott, Li-Xin Li, "Can the Universe create itself?"
Phys. Rev. D 58, 15 July 1998

It seems one may be able to explain both the origin of the universe
*and* the arrow of time by just identifying the earliest inflationary
period with some later inflationary period. Remarkable if true.
