I want to know why the layers don't get darker as they move farther away from the light. If it is not possible within the light itself, how can I set up an expression to make that happen?

AE doesn't have light falloff functionality. But you're right, you can fake it with an expression:

Nice script.

There's also an inexpensive Digieffects plugin called Falloff that might help.
