- TL;DR Summary
- is spagettification and a singularity in contradiction with eachother?

a singularity is assume to be a point without dimensions. When 2 mass particles fall into a black hole in the direction of the centre and separated by small distance, the particle closest to the center will have an acceleration as seen from the other particle as I understood. so distance between the particles will increase. Iassume you can do that thought experiment for any moment during the path towards the singularity, so place 2 particles close to eachother in free fall. But the singuarity has no dimensions and both particles will finally arrive there. So how can it be the on te one hand the distance increases and on the other hand they will finally arrive at the same point (the singularity). To me this looks as if dimensions relatively scale down towards 0 the closer you come to the singularity. So how does this work? (I posted it as basic as I am looking for a high level explanation if possible)
