4 is perfect

Question

Guest

I have a system of counting. In my system 4 is the perfect number. I can take any number and revert it back to 4. For instants:

10=3=5=4 is perfect

7=5=4 is perfect

0=4 is perfect

-20=14=8=5=4 is perfect

1,101=27=11=6=3=5=4 is perfect

Can you figure out how I count? Can you do 69?

We know the speed of light, so what's the speed of dark?

made it up - darkness is merely the absence of light - sort of like what is empty.

the speed of dark would be equal to the speed of light . Because darkness is in fact the only thing left when there is no light. It follows light; constantly on its horizon. But think on this: Could darkness be the true source and light only the absents of it? Entire books are written on the subject. Lives are toiled away to prove it true. And to what point?

think about it like this:

How much stuff is in an empty hole? nothing.

Just like emptyness is the lack of stuff so too is darkness the lack of light.

heres another way to think of it:

Take a flashlight and flip the switch on and off continuously, the light comes out in pulses and travels, alternating with darkness like this:

==[|- - - - - -

The dark patches travel at the same speed as the pulses of light in between them

OR the light travels THROUGH the darkness because the darkness isn't some sort of matter, its just air particles that arent lit up, so the light enery just goes thru them, losing a little bit of them to the air resistance or whatever. the darkness doesnt move.
