: Your intuition was correct.

: :Unless, of course, you could cancel out the gravity over your head...

: I'm not sure that I know what you mean by cancel out the gravity over your head.??

Imagine the earth sliced in half like a huge peach with you standing where the removed pit once rested. Now, with no gravity overhead, you are being pulled in all directions except up. Half of the mass is missing, and the direction of gravitational attraction is all around you. This takes me back to my point; that if the outer matter in any given mass is acting on the inner matter with the same force, a black hole could never develope. If you consider the largest star in the universe divided (like a peach and the pit) with each segment being equal in mass. inner mass attracts in and outer mass attracts out. No collaps.
