    Time becomes slow near a huge gravitational field as compared to a far off distance.

    Is it possible that the gravitational field is so high that time altogether stops? (Black Hole, I suppose)

    If time stops, it would mean that every kind of process at that place also comes to a stop. Can anything exist in such a scenario?

    Would such a body be able to spin or move as these are also processes. Would other processes of matter cease at its core? Why does a black hole spin/move then?

    If a black hole doesn't stop time can there be even more denser things that are capable of stopping time. If something is thrown in them won't matter cease to exist because of the fact that with the stopped time, the motion of electrons, nucleons etc. would also stop.

    Are such things possible or there is a limit to gravity density?

    At the event horizon of a BH time, as seen by a distant observer stops. But, for an object falling into a BH, as seen by that object, time passes normally. In Relativity, time is relative, and different observers will measure it differently.

    The quotation that you have given applies to you only.

    Consider this:

    Two observers : A near the gravity source, B far away.

    A will say to B 'My time is perfectly okay but your time in running fast'.

    B will say to A 'My time is perfectly okay but our time is running slow'.

    It means time really slows in a gravitational field (not only relatively)

    Check your facts.

    You could check out the relativity primer, written by Janus. It has a few facts in it.

    The only way time can slow is relatively. without comparing it to something then the statement "time really slows" does not mean anything.

    Regarding the part about the black hole stopping time (relatively) That really is a break down of current theory at the singularity. I think that will be resolved in due course. Did i hear someone saying Planck? Ha, just kidding!
