the only variable is the speed of light. the speed of light is how fast darkness disappears, and how fast darkness reappears.

Darkness isn't a vacuum...space is, sure, but space doesn't = darkness.

Darkness is just the absence of light, as others have said. End of story. rip is right insofar as the speed of darkness appearing/disappearing is equal to that of the speed of light.
