Acceleration applied to any massive object increases its mass according to E=mc2.  Weight is simply an arbitrary unit of gravitational force applied to the object.

And I am not convinced a massive object accelerated towards the speed of light does not also increase its gravitational field. By definition mass and gravity seem directly relational. This is why I do not believe black holes include any sort of singularity. I believe all the mass accumulates in relativistic terms to such an extent, their velocity and mass dialations prevent them ever reaching the center. Their time, from our point of view, has come to a complete stop.

Further, we know black holes increase in mass as they accumulate matter from their accretions disks. This matter does not disapear in a singularity. It simply increases in velocity and mass to form something like a shell towards the center. All that mass accelerates all that matter and dialates the matter so much that there will never be enough energy to bring them to the speed of light. My quess is the entire center of a black hole is little more then an empty space aproximating one Qubic Plank Unit.

If this is a reply to a previous post, please could you move it into that thread? If it's going off at a tangent from another thread, then fair enough to make a new thread of it, but please could you include a link and a bit of context?

Ben,

I am still learning both the technical and protocols of posting. I don't mean to disrupt any particular thread with spurious subject.  I will try to get the hang of it as I progress.

Plank Unit.
That would be 'Planck Unit'.........named after Max Planck.
