I guess the darkness would reinvent itself where necessary--which would would be a self-perpeptuating mystery.

light is a symbol for knowledge/consciousness or the observed. All things are particles, and when particles are observed they change!?!?!

However, if you go by the subtractive nature of colors (color wheel) white is the absence of all color and black is all of the colors added together. So the exact opposite of light.
However, when speaking of the religious aspects of light and dark, they are more metaphoric.
Where all three inks may overlap, almost all incident light is absorbed or subtracted, yielding near black. It is because of this poor "subtractive" black that a separate black ink is used
