That would be true if one had no hunger to learn about the
universe and how it works. Otherwise, it is way too limiting.

Not shone in the video, but shown in pictures is a large satellite
dish for TV. I'm sure they have internet too because several years
the school there had a web page. They don't maintain it anymore.
With TV and internet they are well connected to the world. Whether
that is better than total isolation I am unable to judge, but it is
not for me.
