: In my opinion singularities cannot possibly exist. It would take an infinite amount of time to crush something into infinite density. An object could just get smaller and smaller no matter at what speed it collapses without reaching 0 size. You cannot possibly collapse an object out of existence, maybe in another universe that has different laws, but not in our universe. Tell me what you think, I would be glad to read your opinions.

In my opinion, a singularity is in itself only a difference in applicable laws due to overiding circumstances of an area of matters environment, so you hit the nail right on the head, it has nothing to do with squishing matter out of existence. billy :)?
