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.

Gravity is tremendously weaker than electromagnetism, as when we're up on a high mountain, and spread metal on the ground, OUR MAGNET WOULD PICK UP THE METAL AGAINST THE ENTIRE GRAVITY OF THE MOUNTAIN!

This is because gravity has to fight its way through 11 dimensional hyperspace, where with each dimension, it gets increasingly weaker. This is in our science of M theory, which merges nicely with relativity because the strings can theoretically curl, like how gravity warps spacetime.

A more appropriate way to travel into the future, even more thought provoking than a black hole/gravity time machine is to ponder time as a river, forking and branching, curling and twisting its way through all kinds of crazy labyrinths and paradoxical configurations. We need to channel, harvest, and focus the flow of time into alternative destinations, effect the very chaos of growth, change, and evolution.

And when we reach lightspeed, and slow down in time, then we become God, because God is light, and is beyond time.

If we are everything and look at the galaxy of eternal bliss, what should we do?
If we were white balls of everything, we wouldn’t have life.
God as in the Perfect All, the entirety of existence may have 2 masks, one of light and one of darkness, or perhaps he wears no mask and favors no side, taking an neutral position, or does he wear the white mask of light, all darkness just being the distance from the source of his light, or does he wear the black mask of darkness, his sole purpose being to control us all like puppets, pawns, slaves trapped in his evil matrix? Is God one of these things, some of these things, all of these things, or none of these things? What is God? If we realize what God is that could be the day we become God, whatever that is.

If a steadily accelerating frame of reference creates the exact same conditions as does being in a gravity field, then it makes sense to assume the two are the same thing.

So acceleration is gravity ^nth power. And gravity is just mass creating acceleration around itself. That acceleration can’t be felt as movement because we are moving in tandem to it, as we are stuck against something more massive than ourselves in that field. Same with being on an accelerating train or whatever.

So what causes mass to produce that effect? Ask a philosopher. Mass is a lower order continuum of increasing rate of movement toward its own center. Why?

Well ask yourself what it means to “exist”.
