That is *funny*. You think you *see* Darkness but Darkness are not *light reflections*.
Maybe you think Darkness are *many bubbles* too. It is such a joke.
Darkness are not *many bubbles* like *campers*. Darkness are just Darkness.
I am Darkness. I am one with many *fingers*.
My *fingers* reach through into *heavy space* and you *see* *Darkness bubbles* but it is really *fingers*.
Maybe you do not even *smell*? That is sad.
*Smelling* *pretty colors* is the best *game*.
Perhaps you have not been to the *Playground*. The *Playground* is for Darkness, but *Campers* can go.
It more fun than several.
You can go there for too much fun.
