Hi, I've heard and read that if someone was to fall towards a black hole, say feet first, they would undergo spaghettification at a certain distance, as the gravity at their feet would be much greater than the gravity at their head, and their body wouldn't be able to reisist the pulling effect. I also heard that if the black hole is big enough, it could happen inside the black hole's event horizon.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However, I've also heard and read that inside a black hole, the radial dimension becomes the time dimension and the time dimension becomes a spatial dimension, so that the quantum singularity is no longer a distance away in space, but in the future, and you can't escape the future.

If that's the case, then this would be at odds with spaghettification, as at any point in that person's proper time, all parts of that person would be the same distance away from the singularity, and that distance would be a purely time distance.

Does this contradict spaghettification?

Also, if the singularity is in the future, then it would not be in any spatial direction.
