TBH the only real spots where there is no ambient light is way out in the woods on a cloudy night. These days there is so much light pollution in cities, you can see basic things. The light just, helps.It's so ubiquitous now they show people using smartphones as lights on TV and in movies all the time, and it's funny because it's true: art imitates life. I don't remember what people without flashlights did in the dark before smartphones had LED flashes for their cameras? I'm pretty sure I used to be able to see in the dark, that there was usually always some amount of ambient lighting, and I could access my dark adapted vision more quickly. No more.
