Sorry, I am not trying to beat a dead horse here but I am talking about after neutron degeneracy pressure of the neutron star and any other stages of collapse a body of mass may go through including the stage of converting to a black hole. Which I think is the same as all the other stages where the escape velocity just rises another notch. In this case it rises above the speed of light. But after that stage what stages are there and eventually you get to a particle that are so much smaller than anything else. There would be no other place to collapse to.
Small particles makes things collapse faster. The reason things stop collapsing is that you've filled up all of the energy states. Once you increase gravity, the energy levels change so that you have empty stops that open up. If you create new particles, the number of energy states increases even more so things will collapse faster.
