The Spontaneity Spectrum

You sit outside in the patio. Smoke fills the air. There are people inside but the real party’s out here. Besides, though you like talking to new people or people you haven’t seen in awhile, you love the fact that you don’t have to act anything less than yourself around your closest friends. You also enjoy these moments because of the pure state of calm you’re in when you’re in them.
The senses are the first gates in perception. However, these fail easily. The best example of this is the law of closure: when a participant is shown what appears to be a shape, a circle for example, however it looks like parts of it have been erased. Though technically not a circle, because a circle must be smooth and closed, our brains still “complete” the image so that we still perceive a circle. Not to mention all the optical illusions that people have made, like the “jumping” dots, which also point to perception failure. If our perception is so easily fooled, can we reliably trust it to make sense of our reality? Is there even an objective reality? The scientific method is the most reliable way in shaping our objective reality but modern physics is constantly finding new things about how matter changes from nonbeing into being.

If there exists one word that is the exactly the opposite of “spontaneity,” what would you say that might be? Words that seem fitting include “planning,” “discipline,” “consciousness,” “inhibition,” but none of which scream out to me as the truest antonym. Maybe an antonym was never created because spontaneity is a state without constraint–and to find its converse, one must define the original idea, but to define the idea is to establish its boundaries and spontaneity is a concept that knows no bounds.
High school taught me to be a plan ahead, but I only relied on the calendars they distributed during syllabus week to keep track of assignments, project due dates, tests, and the occasional social event. Nowadays, I can proudly say that I did not believe in turning something in late, although, for some reason, at that age, my peers and I were too ashamed to let it be known that we were timely. Our teachers taught us that everything had a deadline, so what made us so hesitant? What was there to be afraid of?
If you asked me what my five-year plan was when I was in high school, I would tell you that I could not imagine what life would be like past eighteen. You would probably think I was short-sighted.
I think I was sad.
There is a bargain that all college students make with themselves around finals time that I made every single week during my time in nursing school. In essence, the student can only pick two out of the following: sleep, good grades, a social life. My schedule revolved around the juggling and the struggling, but looking back, I am glad I never penciled in a bedtime.
