: : Is a blackhole at absolute zero???

: I love You!

I would have to say that I'm surprised the parralel between both have not been explored as passionately as other aspects of black holes as the implications are tremendous. One follow-up made mention of absolute zero as the absence or halt of time, but this is erroneous. A more accurate correlation between absolute zero and black holes would be in the defining of absolute zero as the absence of motion (even though particles at absolute zero continue to oscillate). Such a phenomenon can, I believe, exist at the singularity of a black hole, where gravity is so intense that incalculable amounts of matter are compressed into a single defining point. At this point, has gravity caused the matter to slow oscillations to absolute zero status? I believe so, but its all conjecture since I have not, as of yet, studied the literature on the matter (if it exists). Bizarre parallel between the gravity of black holes and absolute zero: certain matter, when brought to absolute zero, slows light down to a paltry 36mph when shone through it. If anyone can help, please email me.
