      Thank-you for this somewhat cryptic remark. I think you are saying there no light without heat? (Rather than temperature, which is simply a measure of heat). What about nuclear energy, which produces electricity which in turn, thanks to the invention of the light bulb, also produces light.
      I think these musings are not really helpful to the original point, which is not about physics, but about perception and hints at our metaphorical inability to see much that illumines our world.
