How many of you could get through a day without access to email, the web, TV, or music? Radio Sweden talked to Lars O. Ericsson, an associate professor of philosophy at Stockholm University, and an art critic, curator and writer. He wrote an essay today about this total media blackout in the culture section of Svenska Dagbladet.

He says he was moved to write the essay - "It is human to live without the net" - after reading about an experiment from the University of Maryland in the United States called the World Unplugged.

The experiment looked at how over 1,000 college students from five continents and ten different countries reacted when they were cut off entirely from all types of media. No web, email, mobile phones, social media, TV, music, film or video games.
