blackhole distant freefall Space

If you fell into a black hole, would time feel really slow?

No, because you would have no way of ‘feeling’ the
passage of time. It is true that large gravitational forces
(such as when you approach a black hole) slow down
time, but you can only be aware of this by comparing your
experiences with someone far away from the black hole.
You will see a distant friend ‘speed up’ rather than feel
yourself ‘slowed down’. They will see you ‘slowed down’
rather than feel themselves ‘sped up’. The closer you
approach the black hole’s ‘event horizon’, the more sped
up you see your friend. But, for you, time would ‘feel’ just
as it does to you right now
