Does Light when being sucked into a Black Hole travel faster than "stationary" light? You know what I mean when I say "'stationary' light". I mean light not being sucked into a Black Hole. Why or why not? If you shine a flash light into a Black Hole, you cannot convince me that there is never ANY light being shown. It is merely that the photons are being sucked away faster than you can see them. Therefore, the light that you CAN see must be traveling slow enough for you to see it, where as the light you cannot see is traveling TOO fast.
