How about if we move human mind to "merge" with an AI, is that still considered human? Cyborg? Just AI?
Hive mind is also complicates this, if you think several human mind could be merged.
About your question.... I think its more of the first case, as time did affected by gravity. Time and space is inseparable but gravity affect them.
But until we learn more about blackhole, we cant be sure 100%
Things that happen beyond the event horizon is still a mystery. It could bring light to the parallel universe or multiverse if you will. Also some speculate it could work as a "warp" point across the fabric of timespace, think like using a needle and string to stich one part of fabric to the other part of the same fabric.
hive mine (central Ai) just need one brain, but here two types of hive mind too, first, Active central hive mind monitoring and controlling every individual worker that is connected to it at once in real time + some more things like technology controls and other political, it is sure this AI need a Spacial brain and worker dont need brain as they are in controled centraly, now second, if in case of passive hive mind, central AI just do some commanding and monitor just rondom one individual at a time to watch about work is done (not controlling any one) and all worker mind connected to each other so they coordinate their jobs, now its possible central Ai to use human brain.
no, time doesn't affect by gravity, in fact, neither affected by any forces, because when time stops, all force becomes zero, that means everything becomes not moving, electromagnetic spectrum stops that mean everything from radio waves to visible light to gamma radiations stops and becomes dark all the sudden, at atomic level, all positive and negative charge and other physical atomic properties stop reacting this makes atom doesn't exist anymore this makes all physical objects not exist such as animals, trees, earth, sun, blackhole, etc, and all the diamentions too stop existing and make nothingness, its just like you playing minecraft all the sudden minecraft stop responding, then you find out that actually, operating system stops responding, then backout (means intel/Amd Processor dead/stop), imagin God is just playing this simulation real world... game. on his computer, and some hardware failure/ power down / his mom arrive and say "enough that game >:[ " *Unplug power cord*
but if you are god and still can see thing and move during stoped time, you end up watching like this.
basically, all physics works based on time, and time is not time, it's more likely FPS (my theory)
