What does "black occupation" mean? The sentence I met was as below:It was hard for him to be aware of her; he kept sinking back into black preoccupation.Sorry, it's"black preoccupation".

That means that he is thinking about something so much that he can't think about anything else and doesn't notice what is going on around him. Whatever he's thinking about is dark and depressing, which makes it a 'black preoccupation'. To westeners, 'black' signifies something sad, depressing and sometimes evil.
