No! How can it be?

 

We don't live under the sea.

But time goes under the sea.

 

I don't understand, time is always going................

In the simplified case, the general theory of relativity describes how, for both observers, the clock that is closer to the gravitational mass, i.e. deeper in its "gravity well", appears to go slower than the clock that is more distant from the mass (or higher in altitude away from the center of the gravitational mass). That does not mean that the two observers fully agree: each still makes the local clock to be correct; the observer more distant from the mass (higher in altitude) measures the other clock (closer to the mass, lower in altitude) to be slower than the local correct rate, and the observer situated closer to the mass (lower in altitude) measures the other clock (farther from the mass, higher in altitude) to be faster than the local correct rate. They agree at least that the clock nearer the mass is slower in rate and on the ratio of the difference.

 

If people from Earth were watching your journey into a black hole they would never see you cross the event horizon. Albert Einstein's theory of General Relativity says that as you approach a black hole your time slows down (relative to an observer on Earth). The closer you get to the black hole the more you appear to be in slow motion as seen by (an observer on) Earth. Eventually you appear to be frozen in time as you cross the event horizon. You would notice nothing different whatsoever (Your clock would tick normally and you would experience falling beyond the event horizon into the black hole). If you were to change your mind right before crossing the event horizon and return to Earth you would find it in the very distant future. You've become a time traveler

 

the more the mass the more the time it grasps.

Time do not run inside a blackhole because it has too much of mass thus slowing the time down.

A black hole is infinite dense and infinite small, so there is no such thing as 'inside a black hole'.

An object in a gravitational field experiences a slowing down of time, called gravitational time dilation, relative to observers outside the field.
You can never quite see anything falling into the black hole because of the extreme gravitational red shift caused by the gravity of the black hole.

Let's assume there are 2 stupid astronaut who went close to a black hole, and 1 of them is sucked in. The one who get sucked in has his watch running normally, went straight through the event horizon and torn into pieces, then smashed right onto the center singularity.
The lucky astronaut outside the event horizon will see the unlucky one approaching the event horizon, getting slower and slower, but will not go into the event horizon due to the gravitational time dilation. He will only see the unlucky astronaut, who should be dead by now, stuck just outside the event horizon, turns redder and dimmer, but never goes in.

Last of all, all we have for black holes are theory, and a few evidence, but nothing conclusive, such as the observation of a event horizon.

Time travels slower in greater gravitational mass by the theory of twin paradox.

i dont know what im saying is true but time is all based on light and when we see it, so obviously if light cant escape from a black hole then there is no visible time. but yes there could be some form of time which is way beyond here.
