Let's pretend that I'm inside the event horizon of a black hole, and can't be spaghettified. I have a flashlight that I point directly out and turn it on.
Now, as I understand it the light cannot change speed, only frequency (i.e., become redshifted or blueshifted). So, shouldn't the light have to get out in spite of gravity? Am i missing something simple? Do I get to count the inward pull of gravity against the speed of light? In that case, couldn't I get a "perfect" spot where the inward pull was equal to the outward motion of the light, so that the light would effectively be standing still?
I realize that in a real black hole, the force of gravity would not be a neat, simple, inward pull. But, as a thought experiment what am I getting wrong??
