Sweetpea / krash661 / Kristoffer, Abuses and fights are always interesting and difficult to resist (the temptation of getting in)...... So, please enlighten the dummies with your wisdom on below..... Q. what is the significance of time dt inside EH for a person on Earth ?? For example Brucep says for that imaginary UMBH it takes 72 Hrs, what is this seventy two hours for a person on Earth ?? (Request please do not budge the thread with terms like proper time, coordinate time, spatial nature etc, if possible try answering in a language which a layman can understand, because a layman understands time). PS : If you agree that time inside EH has no meaning with respect to time outside EH....then does it not mean that Physics inside EH has no meaning with Physics outside EH ? There are four coordinates dx, dy, dz, dt..........first three are same everywhere, dx = dz = dy = 1cm is 1cm inside EH and outside EH........then what so special about dt (or cdt) ?? Are we saying that t is a special dimension at will ?
