## Summary:

- mass distribution and behavior of the dual singularities during black hole collisions?

## Main Question or Discussion Point

When two BHs collide the resulting single BH bulges and contorts until it settles down to a stable state.

1) Does this mean that during this 'settling' period the mass internal to the merged BH is not (yet) a singularity, but instead two 'singularities' spinning down around each other in irregular fashion due to a wobbling spacetime, or distributed matter in the internal space in the form of a blob or blobs?

2) We know what happens externally, and how fast it happens. What would this settling process 'look' (what does the math say) like from an internal observer's point of view? Or from a 'magic eye's point of view? How fast would the settling take from internal reference, say of an imaginary weather man reporting from within the collision event.
