The nature of the sun is warmth and light. Can you imagine at any time under any circumstance anything emanating from the sun but warmth and light? No. And the nature of the sun is to shine. Can you imagine the sun then, withholding any of its nature, light, and warmth? No. Supposing then, we are in darkness or cold.
