What Would Life Be Like Without The Internet?

by Mary Sewell

An interesting question in an age where the Internet plays an integral part of everyday life, business, and society! So what are the implications of a life without the Internet?

Well, firstly, we should ask the question in a more specific circumstance. What would life be like with no Internet if the ‘plug’ was pulled today? We’ll be looking at this topic from this angle, rather than trying to imagine the world without the Internet had it never been invented.

Life without Internet – Pulling the Plug on the Internet.

How exactly the Internet Plug could ever get pulled is a complicated question due to the expansive infrastructure that makes up the Internet. It would probably require the shutting down of every server and local DNS around the world. Some people have spoken about a primary virus infection spreading through all servers and computers, rendering them / the Internet in a paralyzed state. Another wild theory is that the wind generated by massive solar flares will disrupt anything that carries current, from telegraph wires, metal, computers, servers, etc. You can read about this theory if you Google “Carrington Event of 1959” This theory is said to be predicted by Nasa.

Life with no Internet – Personal Users

How would having no Internet affect the general personal user? Well, apart from every teenager screaming because they can’t log on to Facebook, it all comes down to how much we personally use the Internet and what for. Some of us hardly use the Internet, where others pretty much live their life around it! Equally, some actually live a completely New Life within the Internet like those who use Second Life.
