PHIL 260-001 Dr. Hornsby 8/24/09 There is a standard theory of how light bulbs actually do work. When a switch is flipped, an electrical current of light flows through a certain wire, towards the bulb. The thought is that once the current reaches the bulb that is when the bulb illuminates with light. The dark sucker thought experiment is a completely opposed, revised theory from that of the present theory. Ultimately, the dark sucker thought is a justified experiment. Everyone knows dark exists because, for example, the Sun is what lights up the Earth. At some point in time every day, we are furthest away from the Sun on Earth. This is when darkness is present outdoors. So once you walk into a dark room and flip the light switch, the least amount of darkness in the room is right next to the dark sucker (light bulb) because this is the source of illumination. Dark must have mass because darkness can generate heat. This happens because the dark, going into the dark sucker, creates friction. Thus the “light bulb” is hot once it starts operating.
