Entertaiment is the act of keeping occupied or amused, usually in a recreational way. Entertainment may take many forms, ranging from a single person choosing a personal entertainment from the enormous array of pre-recorded products now available to them; through to an entire banquet adapted for two; to performances intended for thousands; or even a global audience. Although often associated with amusement, entertainment can also have a serious purpose, such as in ceremonies, celebrations or religious festivals, or even as satire for example.
Entertainment often hits on the points that humans were evolved to react deeply to, such as backstabbing, murders and other social themes which are essential to understand our complex world. This is why it is so engaging and important to our mental health.
