Entertainment

Does it surprise anyone that the root of the word entertain means to hold someone as they are?



Often, I have thought of forms of entertainment as exposing people to diverse experiences in a safe manner . . . yet, this term evolved into greater and greater usage even as human beings gained greater and greater power- perhaps not compared to world &c as a whole, yet certainly in the absolute sense. Thus, such safety may involve less importance, and one might much greater value in actual action . . .

The questions I ask now . . . What opportunities did the world accord me before? While entertainment held me, what opportunities disappeared, or appeared? What opportunities remain?
