This is not a question - more a topic of discussion; as I am not expecting definitive answers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

At the center of black holes we stipulate singularities, now I understand that mathematically a singularity does not make sense; infinite density and zero spacial volume being irreconcilable and an indication of a breakdown in current theory.

So my discussion is this:

However would/could black holes form without a singularity?

and

Is it possible for singularities to form from our reference frame, ie: the reference frame of the external observer? Would it not be impossible for a singularity to form on the basis of properties of time dilation in extreme gravity - at least from our reference frame as we would be mapping a finite observer time to an infinite coordinate time?

or

Am I looking at this too simply, and its is curvature that reaches infinite proportions?

Just looking for some general discussion and possible laymans easy reading.

Thanks in advance, Cosmo.
