In darkness, the light as the medium of cognition is removed. In the meantime, darkness makes it very difficult to see things, but those things do not exist or disappear just because we are "not seeing", this makes me quite curious as to what exactly is there in the dark.
Therefore, I tried to use digital camera in the dark to repeatedly shoot for a long, continuous time, making the utmost use of this "reenact" means to get the specific images of the things (the maximal film speed, the least shutter speed, and the greatest aperture in order to get more light in), till the camera is overloaded. Now the camera used to manifest images gets extremely hot, yet images have not shown the objects we expected but a huge amount of colored image noise. Where do these acute "foreign objects" come from? They might not belong to the dark, but they did crawl from the dark. The entire "reenacted" image looks like a mine filled with gems yet also like an infinite universe...then what about these things originally in the dark?
