Quote from: "NejinOniwa"...whilst darkness is silent, pure nothingness, that will never do harm to anything or anyone...
QuoteActually, if we're talking about darkness as being the silent void, that would include a lack of heat, yes? This would cause amazingly low temperatures that are rarely (if ever) experienced on Earth outside of a laboratory. The lack of energy can be just as deadly as an overabundance of it.However, in some cultures, black is viewed quite positively. It is considered a symbol of strength, dignity, authority, prosperity, prestige and elegance. It is even considered a symbol of life, according to Wikipedia, due to associations with dark rainclouds and nutrient-rich soil. Black can also indicate heat (as it is a "warm" color and also is the color of soot and charcoal)White, on the other hand, can also be a symbol of death, ghosts, mourning, horror and fear. In some cultures, it has also be seen as lacking in social status, often indicating poverty. White can also indicate cold (it is a "cool" color and the natural color of snow).
QuoteRather than to say it is necessary I would say it is because we have it that it IS necessary. True, without the sun we would have no major source of energy and thus would have had a hard time to start the evolution chain at all, but if it HAD happened, then we would have adapted to a life without light, and thus, if we hypothetically reached a level of sentience equal to that which we have now, would we not think of light as a foreign thing, that can hurt us?

QuoteAs much as i like snow, i like it better when it's dark outside - otherwise it blinds you MUCH. ;
Quote from: "Tsubashi"'tis true. 22:00-6:00 = Best hours in most places ^.^Funny how my silly rebuttal drew more text than I've seen from Nejin-san in a while (outside of Topicless and Forum Games ^__^)
QuoteStill, black/darkness is most often perceived as the evil colour. That is beyond argument.
QuoteUm... guys...?*Points to Topic*Please don't make Captain-san's job any harder. Arigatou
