Entertainment is a way of distracting people from their mundane lives by creating situations that are both gratifying and sometimes challenging to the mind, body and soul. Entertaiment hits on the themes that humans were evolved to react deeply to, like social backstabbing, murders and other controversial topics. It stimulates the brain to realease seratonin and dopamine. The power of stories that entertain is illustrated by how often they are retold in different media. For example, Scheherazade, a story in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, has been retold as an orchestral piece of music by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski, in a film by Pasolini, and in innovative video games.
