That's not completely nonsensical, bbobeckyj, just asking good questions. But everything has to follow the laws of physics, the problem is that we don't know all of them, and may not be correct on some. A good part of theoretical physics is just that, it is just theory. Newton's theories were valid until they were replaced by Einstein's theories. And who knows, one day his theories may be proven incorrect or incomplete.
But what you are describing sounds like what happens in a black hole. If someone feel into it and actually remained in one piece and did not fry from the radiation, to that person time continues as usual. To the outside observer watching from just beyond the black hole's event horizon, the person falling into the black hole appears to slow down, slow down, and then cease all activity, time appears to have stopped. But it's all a complex relationship between gravity, time, and space.
Here's another weird thought and source of headache. Time is not the same for everyone, it runs differently based on their velocity. An airline pilot who flies at 600 MPH for a good part of his life actually lives longer than if he did not. The time difference is not much, but it's still there.
We hold to the concept that time marches on at a constant rate, and that it is constant throughout the entire universe. But it's not.
But while flying he's actually less under the gravitational effect and thus time moves faster so it would even out somewhat
