What would be the situation in the world if we never had any entertainment?
From time immemorial, we have heard of the existence of some form of entertainment or the other which helped people relax. It could even be called a wild distraction for people sometimes (or very often?). Just wondering how better or worse we would be without entertainment. Would like to know your thoughts. Thank you.
I agree that we would become bored... Entertainment brings out our emotions, for example it can make us happy or sad, making us laugh or cry. I think we would become robot like without any entertainment.
Human beings would never have moved passed hunting and gathering. What is life without music, books, and all other forms of entertainment? Just sleeping and eating. What would you talk to your spouse about? Even the big ideas we have are often an offshoot of a book we've read or television show we've seen. With no creative outlet, would the human mind really have progressed?
This is a very interesting question...What if there was no entertainment in the world...this world would be full of stress, diseases since all work and no play can make anyone dull and sick of the monotonous activity and maybe the suicide rates would be higher as well.
Gosh...things would definitely be on the down side with lots of cries and pain. Thank god for music and entertainment!
It would be impossible to have no entertainment. Entertainment comes in more forms than media related things. Entertainment can be as simple as thinking, looking at the stars at night, or watching life in general. IF it were possible to have no entertainment, that would mean being literally brain dead and in-human. You would be..well..not living. The only things that have no entertainment are non-living things, like rocks. By the way, hunting and gathering was and still is a form of entertainment. It's also considered a sport now. If we didn't have that, there would always be fighting. There is always some conflict between all species some where. This could pose as a form of entertainment. Think back to the old Roman times, where their entertainment consisted of the brutal fighting of gladiators. If you can't find entertainment in something "friendly" you will find entertainment in something deadly. This goes for all living species.
I'd have to agree with Travis' point. I think entertainment is relative. People will eventually seek out means to entertain themselves since humans are curious by nature anyway.
But if you mean entertainment like TV shows, music, or something related to the arts to be non-existent, I guess people will tune in to academics, and technological innovations and advancements (well this could be a form of entertainment too).
If there would be no entertainment then we humans would have driven an alternative that make us relax or obtain object what we tends to attain from entertainment :-).
We will have more Time in life, to Reflect upon the Realities of Life ... In the Noble Purpose of being Humans.
Entertainment, my friend ... is a "Ploy" devised by those, who need a diversion, to keep people busy ... away from the Reality of Life ...
Life is not Movies, TV, and Fiction ... Life, is within the Higher Purpose ... of the Human, Being Humans ... Meaning, Humane, seeking Fair livelihoods.
This devised preoccupation is for the common folks, and affords the nefarious ones, the opportunity of Executing their Plans ... the daft Plan of Enslaving, the rest of humankind ... in these Modern times !

Is technology narrowing our perception of life?I came across this question in some reading I was doing and it made me stop and think. With computers and instant access to the Internet via smart phones and tablets, has the perception of "real life" changed? Instead of going and doing...
