Is there a difference between "Turn the lights off" and "Turn the dark on"? And if there isn't, why do people only say the first one?

From what I understand, there can only be an absent of light, and that is why it is said the first way. So darkness is a relative thing?

We can't (or haven't) invented anything to allow us to make a lit room dark simply by turning something on, only by covering, or turning the lighting off?
I've never understood use of the word "cut" in both on and off. Cut the light off, cut power to the lights. Cut the lights on? What exactly are you cutting?
