Space time curve

    in black holes it is said that space curves into itself and flow of time is not predicatble. what does these actually signify? what is "space curves into itself "?

    I have never heard such statements.
    Please provide references where these were said.

    I think:
    As gravity distorts the fiber of space time, a black hole makes a hole (punctures) the fabric of space time. So at the hole the time is not predictabel. its like a hole in simple graphs. I think time tends to negative infinity to the past to the time of big band, the "singularity". that's just me, not a professional.
