What is entertainment?
Is entertainment anything meaningful? many people in the west follow what their favorite stars are doing, can't wait to watch the next episode of something, grown men wear jerseys with other mens names on them, people get emotionally invested sports, movies, music. Do they do this because there is some deeper meaning in entertainment?

Some people take up entertainment simply and only because it appeals to them greatly. They enjoy it. However, some people can use sources of entertainment as an outing- to take their minds off of stresses in their lives. Smile

Could conspiracy have factors that qualify as "entertainment"?

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

Obviously nothing is meaningful without god. Why do you ask?

It's a bummer that good ol' Xtian entertainment is no longer available, Burnin' witches an' shit. That was proper fun.

RE: What is entertainment?
Life has no inherent meaning... so we have to find something that means something to us.

Entertainment really is just a way to pacify the mind. People tend to think of boredom as being a relaxed state, where the brain's activity is reduced... really boredom is the opposite, it's a state in which the brain is more active.

Without something stimulating/entertaining we feel uncomfortable and restless... and floor pacing usually follows.

Exactly. The meaning of life is to give life meaning. Big Grin

wait...video games weren't on the list??? as for entertainment being meaningful, well people do learn from plays and books and such; and music invokes emotions (lo shitty wording). So I think there is some meaning in entertainment because of our reactions to it.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.
