The REAL Use of FlashLightsI have always had a strange fascination with turning off the lights, looking into a mirror, and shining a flashlight into my eye. It's an amazing thing to see the pupil dilate as the light moves closer and then farther away. It's like gazing into a black hole. No, not like the ones you see in Star Trek or some other product of Nerdular fashion where the black hole is a spiraling mass of purple sparkle explosion, but an actual BLACK HOLE. One with an infinite depth of nothingness. A place where that nothing is not bound by the chains of physics.As the hole expands, swallowing the soft color that once dominated my eye, I begin to wonder why that color hides from the light. Shouldn't something so usually vibrant want to bask in the light? There is, perhaps, some scientific explanation as to why it cowers behind the growing dark circle, but as the light creeps closer, I find myself not caring and slightly angered that the color I long to see does not wish to greet me.
