I just wanted to see what other people think of when they hear the word darkness. How do they feel towards darkness, what types of emotions are brought up when you come across the word? What do you believe darkness is?

Darkness is simply the absence of light. I don't feel any one way towards the word, nor does it evoke one particular emotion, as for me, it depends on the context of how the word is used. Darkness is not good or bad to me, it is whatever you choose to make it.
Darkness, to me, also means the unknown. To me, it means the unseen and things that we are afraid of, but can learn to like and/or survive. It is a force of nature that is as necessary to existing like a volcano is necessary to create new earth.
Darkness to me is the beginning of everything of creation before Order/light was born. Darkness is primordial chaos. Personally I see it as part of the subconscious part of the mind and the "unknown". It can be beautiful and horrible at the same time.
