Who knows?

No one's ever been to the Sun, yet scientists arrogantly tell us what the speed of light is.

Have not had the chance to watch the video but if darkness is the absence of light then wouldn't darkness have an absence of speed? Just throwing that out there til I watch the video.

I think this guys does not known what he is talking about.  Darkness cannot faster than the speed of light because it is cause by light.  Darkness is not necessary the absent of light but it is cause by light.

Going to watch now... but wouldn't dark advance at the speed at which light was extinguished?

I would assume that darkness is still. It doesn't move, light just passes though it. Without light everything would be dark.

I always assumed darkness was simply the absence of light...    but,  if DARK  matter (and energy) really do exist..  there would be motion therein?

If you are in the opinion that it is required to be to the sun to determine the speed of light, you
are inadequately prepared to join a discussion about the speed of light in general.

I think we will come to see darkness as non-matter and non-energy not a vaccum.

Darkness obeys laws and we can figure out what those laws are. Maybe in there is the missing gravity from our current models of the universe?

Once I got to the point in the video where the person claims that a shadow can move faster than light, and then he uses the analogy of casting a shadow on the moon from earth, I dismissed the video as being made by someone who doesn't understand how light and shadow work.

There is no such thing as darkness. Darkness does not exist any more than "cold" exists. Darkness and cold are only man made terms to describe the absence of something. They are not "things" in the sense that they obey any kind of rules. Only light and thermal energy obey rules, because they exist.

Darkness travels so fast you can't see it.

Darkness DOES exist, can't have light without it.

(I also doubt that he knows what he's talking about.)

I see quite a few people who didn't watch the full video. How can anything be discussed if you don't watch the full video? This threas could be an interesting behavioral study if nothing else.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

Darkness DOES exist, .

That is false.

Light is radiant energy in the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Darkness is not a real thing. Darkness is nothing other than a man made concept to describe the ABSENCE of light.  

"Cold" is also not a thing, it is a merely a descriptor for the lack of thermal energy, the same way "dark" is merely a descriptor for the lack of visible electromagnetic energy. The absence of a thing is not a thing.

can't have light without it


That is also false. All that is required for light is a source of visible electromagnetic energy. To have visible electromagnetic energy, you do NOT need to also have the absence of visible electromagnetic energy.


Unless you are talking in non-scientific metaphors, where light is just a metaphor for relative "good" or "happiness" and dark is a metaphor for relative "evil" or "sadness."


My office mate Arthur is not at his desk right now. Does that make EVERYWHERE Arthur is not, or the absence of Arthur, a thing called "not Arthur?" I'm looking at his chair, and he is not in it. Does that make the empty space where he sometimes sits a thing called "not Arthur?"
