How could a stellar mass blackhole or supernova type black hole ever reach the critical mass of creating a schwarzschild radii? (or event horizon)
As it is collapsing upon itself, time is exponentially 'speeding' up; from the outside reference point of view.
It seems to me that it would approach infinitely close to this radius from an outside observation, but from the reference within the T/S of the blackhole it would reach it no problem.
However, this brings about a problem. When we approach to curve space infinitely, we also approach to curve time infinitely. Therefore, how can we have both take place in our expanding/contracting (you pick) universe.
There cannot be two beasts living in the same cage.
The only way I can accept the theory of a 'blackhole' would be to assume that they merely approach infinitism. But because they do approach infinity, the light emitted is infinitely dim and doppler shifted.
I cannot accept that blackholes pull outside matter beyond their event horizon. This would be impossible within our finite universe.
(And I realize that from the blackholes reference frame it would have no problem collapsing to this radius, and pulling in matter... But that is exactly what defines a blackhole. A true "blackhole" would be only truely defined as such in its own immediate surrounding S/T.)
