: If black holes are at the speed of light and new technology has shown that the galaxy is escaping itself and flying out of reach. Could a black hole disperse your atoms and genetic makeup into a mass of particles and shoot you to another place or dimension so fast that when your particles slowed down and recombined that time had no consequence! : Im not a scientist just asking!

Black holes do not tarvel at the speed of light but have to be travelling faster than light (that is, if they exist!). Otherwise, Light would not be trapped inside a blackhole. Gravity is a factor yes, but the energy will still be light inside the blackhole also, since that is the most stable state for energy to be released in. Now, if you ARE sucked inside a black hole, the normal laws of physics break down (Infact, they break down at the very edge of the black hole) all the laws of newtonian and Modern physics collapse and we really do not know what would happen as atoms also would cease to exist at such speeds becoming energy. Now when energy is conserved, it means that for this reversible process to occur, there must be an energy input from somewhere.

If you are with me till now, then that source of energy has to be an event which will be in conversant with the second law of thermodynamics of increasing disorder. And since that does not exist inside a blackhole, nothing like that can take place. For if a blackhole releases a bit of energy from itself, then it would cease to be a blackhole anymore and the question breaks down to newtonian physics where the answer to your question is negative.

Have fun. gadz
