    would the speed of light be attainable in a place where light doesn't exist?

    No. The absence of light doesn't change the laws of physics.

    like I said, along those lines. Not exactly though, I don't think that darkness could be sucked away through a light bulb. I'll try and find a better way to word my question so it's more understandable. It's tough while sitting in class typing on a iPhone.

    well, i am A little bit confused about sucking the darkness, It doesn't seem to be right. There is no any touchable and reasonable confirmation.
