Entertaiment is a form of recreation that can be enjoyed at any scale. It can be as simple as an individual choosing entertainment from the many available pre-recorded products; a banquet adapted for two; to performances intended for thousands. Although the idea of entertainment has come to be strongly associated with amusement, it may have a more serious purpose, such as in ceremonial occasions, religious festivals, or satire.
Entertainment stimulates the brain to realease seratonin and dopamine causing a feeling of well being. It can also hit on topics that the brain was evolved to deeply react to, such as social backstabbing, murders or other topics that can make people feel emotionally moved.
