We, as a civilization, have come a long way in terms of the forms of content we consume for entertainment. In the middle era of the millennia, we used to watch the crafts and performances of the battles of the knights and feats of archery. Then came the books and the big libraries built by the empires that stood for centuries, passed down, generation by generation. In the early 20th century, we experienced the first motion pictures.
And ever since then, it has been nearly a century, maybe more, we have stuck to refining the movies and created TV shows to entertain us as a species. From feats of bravery and marksmanship, we have boiled down to sitting on our couches and binging for hours to enjoy content and be entertained.
In all fairness, had our ancestors had access to the level of content we do today, maybe they would have become like us as well. It’s a good thing they didn’t because we can pioneer this as our form of entertainment to pass it down to the next generation as our heirloom, for them to change, tweak, and make something new.
