Entertaining involves amusement, usually involving some type of performance—whether it’s the clown at the birthday party, a Broadway show or stadium rock concert, or your friends fighting over the last potato chip. What’s entertaining for one group or individual may not be for another, and what might be considered entertainment can have extreme purposes—for example, sporting competitions or public executions. Entertainment has a long history, and it’s been shown to be adaptable on a large scale. It’s a way of neutralizing or escaping boredom or misery for a damaged Consciousness. It can also be a method of perception or highbrow growth.
