Hey -

I realized that a while back...
Every day of the week is a day of a planet.
So why is there only 7 days?
Here's the list

(in english and french....the planet are even more obvious in french)


Sunday / Dimanche = Sun Day
Monday / Lundi = Moon Day
Tuesday / Mardi = Mars Day
Wednesday / Mercredi = Mercury Day
Thursday / Jeudi = Jupiter Day
Friday / Vendredi = Venus Day
Saturday / Samedi = Saturn Day

So we're missing a Earth Day, Neptune Day and Uranus Day.

Meaning anything????

According to some biblical sources, the day of the Lord was Saturday and have been moved by the church to sunday because they actually worship the Sun God.

...It's what I heard.

Should we be living on a 9 day/week calendar, with the 13 months of the moon cycle?

It would explain why the seasons seems to be moving around and why we feel so disconnected.
Was it done on purpose to separate humans from the simple connections with the stars and cosmic cycle?

Shed light on the subject if you have some.

Japanese have a different meaning for the days than the western. Also those are just their planetary representations. There are many meaning based off era, and location.

But do every calendar work on a 7 day/week pattern or was the western model simply invented to make it easy for people to work. (ie) Enslave..? (like daytime changing, etc)

"According to some biblical sources, the day of the Lord was Saturday and have been moved by the church to sunday because they actually worship the Sun God. "

Just to clarify. It was changed by the Roman Catholic Church from Saturday to Sunday. Most other Christian churches, for some reason followed suit.

In the ancient days before telescopes, the only observable celestial objects were the ones named in the week.

In other words they just couldn't see Uranus and Neptune with the naked eye.

en.wikipedia.org...

Good little overview - Sure would take a long time to actually comprehend the whole thing but it just seems that the western calendar is really based on being efficient and practical instead of being accurate.

I definitely think that even tho it was maybe not done on purpose (ie) westerners just didn't comprehend how the cosmic cycles affect everything, that it is a strong source for this feeling of disconnection we live in...

true... which is an abomination to christianity. the roman catholic church changed the day in it's own power, and in doing so basically putting itself above God... just think about that.

Not a problem.
I hope that you enjoy it.

The OP is long in itself but the thread is up to about 165 pages and the contributions are very well made.

At times people come in and try to derail it, but we do a good job of policing the thread ourselves.

I would recommend reading the entire thread if you can, but do it in small doses.
It is SO much information to digest at one time.

Cheers mate!
