I have a small kitchen with a single light fixture that I am wanting to remove, and replace with 6 recessed can lights. My plan was to remove the existing fixture, disconnect the wire and just pull that wire over to the first can. However, when I opened up the box, I was greeted with this:
It's hard to see, but there are two white wires on the top, and two black ones coming in from the bottom. To make sense of it, I've sketched it out:
Which brings me to my question(s):
A) What is going on here? Top right must go to my wall switch, but what's the rest doing?
B) Since I'm no longer wanting a light here, could this mess be stuffed in a junction box in the ceiling, accessible from pulling out a recessed light? (There is a second floor above this ceiling)
