Does being in high gravity slow one down? Slow down the rate of causality? Could one use high-gravity as a time machine, for future travel?

Yes because there is no way to tell if the force one feels is from the acceleration of gravity or through space, which is why I suspect there is really no difference and standing still in high gravity is the same as traveling at great speed through space.

Qua energy expenditure that is certainly the case.
