Entertaiment is a multifaceted universe, catering to the diversity of human interests, emotions, and intellectual states. It can range from escapism to education, catharsis to cerebral engagement. It can be shared, as with art, sports, video games, or a meal at a restaurant, or enjoyed alone, as with a book, documentary, or puzzle. Some forms of entertainment uplift the mood while others challenge the intellect by provoking strong emotions, presenting new ideas, or requiring problem-solving and strategic thinking. Creative entertainment frequently pushes the boundaries of what has been done before, seeking to entertain through innovation and aesthetic effect.
