: If the gravity of the black hole can or might affect : or alter time, is time therefore physical as opposed : to being a mere unit of measurement?

: Ton

it is a unit of measurement. 1 second near an event horizon is the same second in open, unaltered space.

time dilation comes into effect while observing both time frames simultaneously from an outside reference frame.

gravity distorts time/space continuum.
