I think of it like illumination.  Black is no illumination, can't see a 
thing so it's transparent, white is fully illuminated, the thing shows 
up clearly, so opaque.  (Really I think of it in rgb with black 000000 
means nothing is there and white ffffff is fully turned on, but that 
translates to illumination for those who don't think quite so 
technically as I.)
