Is the future predetermined if all events in the event horizon of a black hole point towards the singularity?

    The future inside a blackhole ends at its center. However, just like here in our universe, due to relativity, you can stretch time to incredible lengths, and put off the future for a long, long time.

      No, the proper time for all paths is quite short, whether in freefall or trying to use a rocket to extend your proper time. There are quite a few papers on this and references in general relativity texts.

    No, nothing is predetermined but predictable to a degree.

    For crossing event horizon, yes, the future is very fixed,,your atoms become more black hole.

    Inside a black hole, one future event is predetermined. That is hitting the singularity. Other events are not predetermined because quantum mechanics still applies and randomness is involved.

    Depends on whom you ask...  Einstein thought so.

      Could be. I was speaking specifically about the complete determinism inside a black hole - the singularity exists across the entire future portion of your light cone (the spacetime that you can causally interact with). No hope, no wishing. It’s a done deal :)
