:surprised Something that I have been wondering about... If space traveller A moves directly toward a giant black hole, into an ever-increasing spacetime compression (while spacetime decompresses as traveller A compresses), would the perceived remaining distance to the black hole decrease at an ever slowing rate, making the trip to the black hole seem endless (Kinda like the camera trick from horror movies, where the victim is running down a hallway but isn't getting any closer to the end)? Also, from an stationary observer, would traveller A seem to acquire a spiral path to the black hole, due to spacetime twisting (due to the rotation of the BH), even though traveller A perceives he is moving directly toward it? Also, could it be possible that black holes are actually extremely large (in size, possibly larger than entire galaxies) but distort our perception of themselves by pulling in the space around themselves to appear to be a singularity? I am just curious.
