To quote from the above post

1. 1 is the local coordinate speed of light in geometric units. >>

You first stated the the shell is stationary in space at a distance r from the singulatity at r=0.

The r coordinate system is stationary in the frame of the remote observer.

But in the above quote you show that at the event horizon, in the local coordinate system, the shell is traveling at the speed of light- just as I have always claimed.

So, it certainly appears to be that the local coordinate system, which I take to be space, is being sucked into the black hole. At the event horizon, it is being sucked in at the speed of light. That is why light cannot escape.

So your equations seem to verify my beliefs. Please point out where my thinking has gone astray as in a prior post you stated that space cannot be sucked into the hole, because it does not appear in the equations.
