In the case of a black hole sufficiently large and massive that the tidal
forces at the event horizon do not tear one apart - does anyone have
theories on what the gravitational conditions INSIDE the event horizon are?
If an observer could survive the transition inside the horizon, would the
situation be similar to that inside a large mass - the gravitation would
drop smoothly to the center of mass - or is the situation completely unknowable?
