Even more mind-blowing, time becomes space in a black hole: Time dilation at the horizon is so severe that from an outside perspective, objects falling into the horizon appear frozen on the horizon, but if you were to jump in yourself (assuming you could survive the radiation from the matter heating up in the accretion disk) you wouldn't notice anything unusual, at least until the light from the universe you are basically leaving at that point also collapses to a point. The Big Bang? It might actually be what you mention. There just isn't enough understanding of physics to know. I'm pretty much a geek for this stuff, too.
