HI Ho
    #980801 - 10/21/02 09:47 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I have not been around much as of late, what with all the alien meetings and many human associates which need attention, but I have not forgotten you all. I am feeling spontaneous, which is why I created this thread.

Spontaneousness... to me is a magical state. I can't exactly explain it, but it makes me feel connected. Like I could just run up to any person on the street all crazy like, run around them in circles while singing a song about how swell they are and then quickly run away. Hopefully that person would think "What the fuck?" and then laugh hysterically. You'd be surprised how many people are walking around in a trance, a daze... just mindlessly zoned into the air... we can kick each other back into reality every now and then just by being spontaneous and fun. I feel like a little elf running around planting magic shoe trees in everyone's backyard while they sleep yaknowwhatimeen?

What does spontaneity mean to you?

Spontaneity, to me, means not letting your brain get in the way. Sometimes it's good to not think, so you don't talk yourself out of things. Knowing when and when not to think is one of the most important keys in life.

I also like to do goofy stuff to make people laugh sometimes. They appriciate it, I know.

When I'm spontaneous is when I feel the most *myself*. When my brain gets in the way it feels like my essence is being blocked by this silly concern for what others think about me. Being spontaneous is being 100% you at all times.

to me it is acting with out thinking of what others will think after the fact, to be completely yourself.

Freedom from the ego? or maybe the id? something like that.

spontaneousness is bliss... if you feel like doing something, then do it... don't let second thoughts and doubts about the subject get in your way... when you are able to express what you feel without judging it yourself or fearing to be judged, then you are spontaneous...
btw shroomism, did you get my message... nice tune on your answering machine!  :grin:

Spontaneity... I have this one friend who is UNPARALLELED at coming up with spontaneous comments/ideas/word combinations/etc.

If there were ever a spontaneity game show and he were a contestant, he'd make it seem rigged.

We could picture it like this:

In a normal situation, the brain sends a signal to your hands, telling them to do whatever has to be done.

However, when spontaneity kicks in, the hands do whatever they think has to be done, and then send a signal to the brain. It's only then that we know if we've done the right thing or not.

Acting without consciously thinking can yeild very interesting results, because it helps us, in a more or less abstract way, to discover whatever lies in our subconscious.

Good post man! Your situation made me laugh just thinking abou it. 
An example of the brain getting in the way:
My roomate is a big guy, and i am......well lets just say slim.
I wanted to dress up in a 70's style leisure suit spike my hair and wear aviator sunglasses and follow behind him for a whole day like I was his associate or bodyguard.  If he ever talked to anyone, He would then break from conversation with that person, step of to the side with me and have a mock conference with whispers and various gestures.  All the while i would never say a word, and just stare out from behind the glasses.  It would have been fucking fantastic, but I thought through it and have never done it.  I know, no fuckin balls huh?

Your post is going to make me do this dumbest of tasks, and I will have fun with it.  Thanks for the inspiration, and I will get back to you with results soon.  That is if I can just not think between now and then :confused: :grin:

There are no dates for first contact, except soon. It is when all the prerequisites are properly in place including government, individual, and societal. I will be as vague as possible to avoid persecution. Liason teams working on every level are insuring success in this project.
