- What would a person inside a large non rotating black hole experience?

I have read about the spaghettification of objects due to tidal forces as they get close to the singularity. Gravity at your feet is stronger than at your head, so you get stretched and pulled apart. In this case, the singularity is a point in space.

But I also read about the time coordinate and the radial space coordinate becoming interchanged inside the event horizon. The singularity becomes an event in the future rather than a point in space. The space inside the horizon is a tiny self contained empty universe - a finite but unbounded 3D space, that shrinks until it becomes a point of zero size. This is the singularity, an event in time.

Which case is correct? Would you get stretched like spaghetti or crushed from all directions as the volume of space becomes less than your volume?
