**what happens when light ...**

Lets say there is the guy named jim

Now, jim is doomed to die.

He is inside of a hollow cube at the bottom of the pacific ocean, and he is unconscious. Now, inside the cube is pretty roomy. If he stood at one corner, and ran diagonally to the other corner, it would take him like 2 minutes, if he was sprinting as fast as possible.

It's completely dark inside, with enough oxygen for him to live for about 48 hours.

So basically, his death clock starts at 48 hours and 0 minutes and 0 seconds, and starts counting down exactly when he awakes.

So, he wakes up and his clock starts counting down. (Jim is completely unaware of any of these facts, he doesn't know he's in a cube at the bottom of the ocean, he doesn't know that he only has 48 hours to lvie)

He wakes with no recollection of how he got there, and since it's pitch black, he is naturally terrified. He spends exactly one full hour banging around the walls, and screaming, only to find out he's completely alone and the walls are indestructible. However, at the end of the 1 hour, he manages to find a hard object on the ground. He realizes it's a flashlight, and he switches it on. THe entire room illuminates almost immediately, because all the walls, the floor and the cieling are mirrors.

He realizes now he's in a cube and there is absolutely no way out. Because of this, he starts panicking, and passes out for EXACTLY 10 hours, WITH THE FLASHLIGHT ON. Now, after 8 hours of him falling asleep, the flashlight turns off because the batteries die. When he wakes up 2 hours later, will the room be

a. illuminated because the light kept bouncing off the mirror walls

or

b.completely dark again?

and if the room is completley dark again, where did the light go? how could it escape a room that is all mirrors?
