Yes I believe they had to sit silently in a barren room with only their thoughts. I have no problem being alone it is the sitting silently that I found difficult. I could do it outdoors no problem but being in a barren room with no scenery I am not so sure. I tried it in my computer room with everything except the light off. I kept thinking of stuff I needed to do and as soon as the 15 minutes were up I got to it.
Of course one could meditate however that isn't anywhere near doing what they asked. That would still be doing something.
