Welcome to a conversation about technology and darkness.
Humans made a great step out of caves with the discovery of fire, our first night vision tool. But this still did not enable much after dark activity.
The next great step into the night was the invention of the electric light bulb that allowed us to light up large areas at night. Night time activities were now possible for working, travel, and recreation.
These advancements actually changed the darkness into light. Artificial light was our answer to functioning in the dark. Lights got more and more powerful to the point that we can easily light up roadways or even a football field.
Advancements in digital night vision and star light vision will be the next exciting steps for humans into the dark of night.
