Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 18-20

18. So also the light that is absorbed. One absorbs little, and is called white and glistening; one absorbs all and is called black.
19. Therefore, O my darling, art thou black.
20. O my beautiful, I have likened thee to a jet Nubian slave, a boy of melancholy eyes.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

My shadow accepts
Everything I push
Its way

And now,
After a half-life
Of pushing,
My shadow
Is bigger
And deeper
And richer
Than me.

And it's so beautiful.

To absorb all light: to Unite with everything by being receptive. This receptiveness goes beyond the gender-polarity, it's androgynous; for, in order to truly receive something, we must already have attracted it to ourself by the laws of our very nature, and vice versa, only what we are capable of receiving do we attract.

"But to love me is better than all things", says the Goddess, "Seek me only!". Thus is the Adept black by the virtue of his/her Love.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

Black conceals the spectrum. The selective absorption of the full spectrum yields color, it's most limited absorption looks white. It's complete absorption, in a black surface, requires a complimentary frequency of vibration, and that spectral resonance converts the light to atomic movement and, thereby, into heat.
