- consequences of space time curvature

Hi All

I'm sure this question has been covered previously , but when searching I do not find a definitive answers.

I recently watch some talks given by Kip Thorne that had me thinking about black holes and their densities.

So my deduction is as follows .

Using General relativity, and the notion that space time converges into some king of singularity inside the event horizon.

Which to me is not palatable.

This would imply that space inside the event horizon stretches toward this singularity

If I could walk around the event horizon I would get some finite value for its circumference.

But assuming I could traverse the black hole and walk through it to measure the diameter . I would walk forever into the singularity.

What I mean by this is that the Diameter is infinitely large, or undefined.

Am I correct in this assumption?

If so it would mean that the volume of the black hole (assuming we use the sphere behind the event horizon) would be infinite as well?

since r^3 is infinitely large?

Am I correct in this assumption.

If this is so then the Density would be infinitely small or zero?

Density =Mass/Volume

Am I correct in this assumption.

But how can it be that there is infinitely large amount of space inside the black hole .

Surely the space inside the black hole must be finite, and cannot go on forever.

Any comments to direct me into the right path?
