As you approach a black hole, the universe you observe slows down. When you see someone from outside approaching a black hole, you see how they freeze in time as they get closer and closer to the event horizon. Their frame of reference slows down as seen from the outside. In fact, all of time passes for the observer far away from the black hole, before the other observer reaches the black hole ... or at least that's what I take away from it. (But tell me, please: Does this period of observation of everything (if this is the case at all) last for a long period of time (I'm thinking about exceeding the life span of a human) or (what I think is more likely to be true, from my "concept" of it) a very short period of time (a fraction of a second from some point in the future to all eternity)?)
Yet we know that black holes don't last for all eternity. They radiate away. Very slowly when they are big, but they do disintegrate and finally vanish in a finite amount of time.
If, before a black hole can be reached by things falling in, all of time passes (when observing the rest of the universe) and after some finite time there is no black hole any more, does this mean that no event can take place inside a black hole?
As you probably have figured out, I'm assuming that from the fact that time for the rest of the universe speeds up as you approach a black hole, it follows that an observer on the inside of the black hole experiences no time before either all of time has passed for the rest of the universe or until there is no more black hole. While I can imagine this to be true I never heard of this and can come up with a different hypothesis. However, this one seems more likely to me. Also, the other one would answer "no" to my question, so there's that.
