The “luminal” is the zone between the death of the old and the birth of the new.
Eg: After you’ve come out of a long relationship but before you find a new partner.
Or after you’ve sold your business but before you start a new one.
Your decision-making in this period will be fraught with emotion, prone to irrationality and rashness.
So don’t make any important decisions.
Play golf, surf, hang out with kids, read.
Just wait awhile until you’re through the luminal.
