: : : If time comes to a stop at the event horizon of a black hole, how can : : : they ever coalesce?

: : The "stop" that you refer to applies to a black hole with a static metric. In other words, it applies to one that has already formed and nothing falling in is significantly changing the metric. The dynamics of particles falling into the hole is different when you consider a variable metric.

: yanniru: Time becomes the radial space dimension inside the horizon of a black hole. Don't ask me just what that implies.

I don't exactly know what any of this mean's BUT... if time stops right before you go into a black hole... how do things ever fall into them?
