I didn’t know what “rubicon” (from the background song's title) meant, so I looked it up. According to Merriam-Webster, it’s “a bounding or limiting line especially one that when crossed commits a person irrevocably. It comes from the name of the river that Julius Caesar crossed with his army, thereby starting a civil war in Rome.”
A sample-use I just thought up: —> Transhumanism is a rubicon.
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
