Does "entertaining" mean "taking into consideration"?

I am almost sure of it. But I need you native English speakers to sharpen my sense of it.

Thanks in advance

It seems rather likely that understanding a proposition is analogous to perceiving an object in physical space. Our default setting may be to accept appearances as reality until they prove to be otherwise. This would explain why merely entertaining the possibility of a friend's betrayal may have set your heart racing a moment ago.
