Have you ever considered how strange our week is?
By this, I mean we get to the end of its seven days and fall off into an infinity of named celestial objects like Gemmda5, Godiano554, Artuix Sunburst and on, and on, and on…
But no, we don’t… I made them up. Instead, we look out at the cosmos and name (in various languages) our periods of wakefulness after seven of the ‘ancient planets’, which repeat, infinitely. Our whole universe is patterned with a plate of rotating flavours from which we (subjectively) transmit the qualities of one-seventh of our lives.
Sun – day (easy enough, even in English)
Mon – day (Moon’s day. In French, which is very helpful in this regard – Lundi, after La Lune – the Moon)
Tues – day (English not much help, but French comes to our rescue: Mardi – Mars Day)
