If you mean is it possible to use a torch to "shine shadows" instead of light? No sadly

Could it ever theoretically happen like when Newton realised that gravity existed and nobody knew until then :O

not according to known theories of physics, and likely not. but who knows?

Light doesn't work that way and considering shadows are just the absence of light then 'projecting' shadows can't be done. There are plenty of other things we don't know though, mystery is endless

I just worked out how it can be done! Use a coloured flashlight (a black one) and shine away!

So you can have "Black light", however, it only works with white light around it. So if you actually want a black flashlight I don't think it would work in the regular world as every object reflects different light and thus the "black light" wouldn't be black anymore. I'm not that great at physics so I don't know how to explain it better sorry. I could be wrong though, I'd like to be proven wrong.

Video didn’t load on my phone, think there’s something wrong.
