While studying slicing of black hole geometry, I find this notion of wheeler's 'many-fingered time' which permits non-uniform evolution of spacelike slices that foliate the black hole. Could someone please explain what this notion exactly means? Is such a notion applicable(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); onlyfor black hole geometry or foranycurved spacetime?
