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 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”.
