: : I have a question on the effect of a black hole on the space time fabric.

: : Going on the "theory" that a black hole is created by a large collapsed sun, and that space time is warped by dense objects, then the small dense object that pushed a dent in space time would be spherical and at the "bottom" of the black hole.

Over the horizon it gets 'timelike'. Outside its 'spacelike'. : : With that in mind, thinking of our existence in space time as a horizontal plane with a dip downward created by the heavy mass, then would the denseness of the object pull other, say, vertical space timelines, to the same dense center?
