Aathma vichara with a realized person will
lead you to enlightenment. Simply sitting in
the dark and asking who am I will not lead
you to enlightenment.

The realized is not necessarily physical

atma vichara can lead to enlightenment, eating cucumbers can too.

Doing anything, not only atma vichara, with a realized person is always more advisable, although you cannot really know if one is truly realized or not so it's actually meaningless.

I heard of several who actually sat in the dark and asked who they are and became enlightened so go figure.

It is the second step (floor) of the seven steps (floors) that lead to Enlightenment.
There are five more steps to be moved into.
Establishing in the second step cannot lead.
Without the first step and jumping to second step cannot lead to enlightenment. The second step is supported by the first step. This way it goes on up to seven steps.
One has to go through the seven floors of enlightenment to be enlightened.
Learn these under the guidance of a Self-realized Guru.
