Heaters are expected to emit heat that we can feel. The sensation of warmth is the result of heat being radiated from an object that is hotter than the person sensing the heat. When next to a very cold wall the sensation is that of feeling the cold; however, this is not what is happening. Heat is radiated from the person to the wall, thereby creating the sensation of coolness. This seems backwards. We are now finding that other things are also backwards.
For years, it has been believed that electric light bulbs emit light, but recent thinking suggests something quite the contrary. Electric bulbs may not really emit light, but instead, they may actually absorb, or suck, dark. Thus, what are commonly called light bulbs are really just “dark suckers”. If you think about it, you will have to agree that at night there is much less dark near any dark sucker that is turned on. Large dark suckers, such as those in parking lots and football fields, are capable of sucking huge quantities of dark.
Dark suckers cannot suck dark forever. Sooner or later they get full of dark. A dark sucker, even a fluorescent one, will almost always show a dark spot when it gets full of dark. And, of course, once a dark sucker is full of dark, it can no longer suck. Even with candles (that are, of course, just primitive dark suckers) the wick tends to turn black as dark is drawn into it. If a pencil is placed next to the wick of an operating candle, it will turn black. It is intuitively obvious that the pencil blocked the path of the dark that was flowing into the wick and, thus, intercepted some of it.
When dark is drawn into a dark sucker, heat is generated. Obviously, this heat is from friction among arriving particles of dark. It is not wise to touch an operating dark sucker. Because heat is generated from friction, then, intuitively, dark has mass. It is interesting to note that primitive dark suckers, such as candles or a camp fire, generate considerable heat. This is thought to result from the mass of dark colliding with the mass of a solid dark sucker core, such as the candle wick or camp fire wood. Now that we are using inert gas cores in our modern dark suckers, considerably less heat is generated.
The sun is the largest dark sucker in our solar system. Considering all of the dark drawn into the sun, and the unbelievable amount of friction that must be involved, it is no wonder that the temperature of the surface of the sun is as great as it is. The sun, like all dark suckers, will eventually completely fill with dark. Astronomers now know what happens to a star, such as our sun, when it fills with dark; it suddenly becomes a black hole.
It may be noted that just below the surface of a water body, during a sunny day, there is a conspicuous absence of dark. Dark, however, increases with increasing water depth. It is intuitively obvious that dark must sink in water because dark (which possesses mass) is heavier than the absence of dark; hence, the absence of dark, being of lighter weight, is referred to simply as light.
Now, to reiterate. Electric light bulbs suck dark. When dark suckers become full of dark, they typically show a dark spot and cease to suck any more dark. Because dark has mass, it is heavier than light, and will sink (such as to the bottom of an ocean). Heat in a dark sucker is generated by friction as a result of converging dark particles colliding while being sucked into a dark sucker. The sun is the largest dark sucker in our solar system. When it eventually fills with dark it will become a black hole.
