Darkness and Light

One evening, when I was in college, I was walking up the hill past the main classroom building. The lights were on in the long room - I think they were rehearsing a play or something.

Standing in the dark, I looked up at the windows. Suddenly I realized that I could see what they were doing, but the people in the room couldn't see me at all. Their own lights were blinding them, but from my dark vantage point I could see both darkness and light.

Is this a parable?
