I am attempting to put a lamp up into the ceiling outlet. The wiring up there is confusing.

There are 2 sheaths. A White sheath has a red wire, white wire and a ground.

The black sheath has 2 black wires capped together, a white wire and a ground.

A dimmer switch controls this. With a voltmeter I get 60 V if I check the red wire and the white wire from the black sheath.

How do I proceed?
