Re-Poll: We are in a Schwarzschild black hole--T or F? Would I be correct to say that time can "run" either way? That is, in physics, time can be forward or backward. I realise that this language is loose bigtime. Here's my problem... Matter added to a black hole is added (geographically) near the event horizon. The "latest events in time" then are near the event horizon. So, to the black hole it's historical record is from singularity out to event horizon. To the black hole the future points radially outward. Er, this makes a conceptual difference? Maybe I'm thick?
