What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a large and varied category of activities. It covers the full range of human activity from the individual who creates their own entertainment, like a game or a poem, through to the individual who consumes pre-recorded entertainment, such as a film or a play. It is often associated with pleasure, fun and amusement but it can also have a serious purpose, as in the case of ceremonies, celebrations, religious festivals, or satire.

It is interesting to note that entertainment often hits on points that the mind was evolved to react deeply to, in order to understand society and function within it.
