Can objects 'fall faster than c' in a gravity field?? Here is my question, which has been eating away at me... According to GR, objects in deep space can receed from one another at faster than c, only given that they are sufficiently far apart. This is because Hubble velocities faster than c are allowed because the velocities are not peculiar in their local reference frame. This seems to be the opinion of most cosmologists (Australian camp). If this is true, and if the expansion is not a true velocity, restricted by c, but instead a result of geometrical expansion, then is gravity itself the same? Do objects bound to reference frames falling into black holes approach, and in fact, exceed c?? Is gravity also just geometrical distortion, not associated with a 'peculiar' velocity, and therefore not limited by c??? I apologize if my language is not correctly stated. I am an amateur. Any input is greatly appreciated.
