Many of us do this. Watch other human beings do things. Sport. Competing. These are common environments to spectate.
I’m not aware any other species does this. Just watch.
Is it to admire the abilities of others? To observe excellence?Do we aspire to their level of capability?
Maybe it’s about the experience? The thrill? The enjoyment?
Maybe it’s a throwback to learning? Learning to hunt?
Maybe it’s about the other spectators? A social thing? Being with others, enjoying the watching?
Maybe it’s tribal? We are part of a gang of like minded watchers?
What do we get from this watching? This voyeurism? And why is it only human beings who seemingly spectate?
