Unraveling the Speed of Darkness

Strictly speaking, darkness does not have a speed as it is not a physical entity but rather the absence of light.

The concept of the “speed of dark” is often used in a figurative or poetic sense, rather than a literal scientific measurement. In scientific terms, darkness does not have a speed because it is not an object or a form of energy that moves from one place to another.

Darkness is the absence or absence of light.

Light, on the other hand, does have a speed, which is approximately 299,792,458 meters per second (or about 186,282 miles per second) in a vacuum. This is commonly known as the speed of light and represents the fastest speed at which information or energy can travel in the universe.

When we say that light travels at a certain speed, it means that electromagnetic radiation, which includes visible light, propagates through space at that rate. Darkness, being the absence of light, does not travel or propagate in the same way. It simply refers to a lack of illumination or the absence of visible light.
