: : : : : : Let us assume that a body moves at or near the speed of light : : : : then according to relativity, it's mass increases and length or : : : :objects of any mass moving at or close to the speed of light do not change in mass or size. black holes are a phenomenon occurring when a star and only a star ( which is made-up of hydrogen and other gasses ) runs out of fuel causing the constant explosion keeping the star from collapsing to cease. at which time gravity takes over and the star collapses increasing its density as it becomes smaller and smaller until, some say, it reaches what is known as the "singularity". a singularity is a term used in quantum physics to describe the smallest particle of matter possible. some say the singularity does not exist. some say that since the universe is slowing down it will begin to collapse at some point. I believe that this collapse will bring, once again, all the matter in the universe together creating one giant black hole i.e. all this matter together to form the singularity at which time another big bang will result starting the whole process again. we know what events took place at aproximately one ten thousandth of a second after the big bang its the time between this and the acual start that we need to account for in order to know everything about the universe. if there is a singularity then this brings about the question of divined intervention for who decided to make this exploding singularity that scattered all the matter across the perfect vaccum of space? although it has been proven that vaccum genesis can take place..

The mass/density relationship in question happens in an inertial frame of reference. A black hole forms in an non-inertial frame of reference due to the influence of gravity. Your question confuses the special and general theories of relativity.
