A week is a wheel with seven sectors which rolls for all of us in the
same way. This is a collective conspiracy. Instead of conceptualising
the week in this manner, we could see it as a ball marked in a manner
similar to a globe with a seven-day equator and shorter belts of days
with new names
at higher latitudes, and Northday and South day at the
poles. There are two temperate day zones each consisting of four
days. Consecutive days are adjacent and can be entered either at the
corners or the sides. The temperate days are named in English after
redundant deities, so for example we have Lokiday and Baldday, and
even Dayday. This gives us a total of seventeen days in the week. You
are allowed to go from any day to any other provided you follow the
rules and there is no obligation to visit any day at all. One of the days is
Birthday, and although it's not forbidden it's considered bad form to
visit it more than once a year. You will need to be careful to plan your
route so that you enter it on the right day of the year although doing so
is not obligatory.
Pluterday is open to all. I dunno, there's been a revolution or something
and its opened its borders.
Just as there are associations currently between some days and
characteristics such as the Day of Rest. For example, some days are
"dress-down", Saladay you eat salad and so on. Come to think of it,
there are already many named days, so:
Northday is at one pole.
The northern temperate days are Pluterday, Dayday, Birthday and
The equatorial days are the same as currently.
The southern temperate days are Saladay, Dressdownday, Unbirthday
(no entry on your birthday) and Earthday. You don't have to be green on
Earthday, but it helps.
Shorter and longer scales of time are similarly divided. The polar days
have twenty-four sectors and the others are divided into 144 time
periods on a grid like graph paper with similar rules about entry and
exit. The months are dodecahedral - each month is a face of the year
but they have the same names. The actual sequence of the weeks and
the years remains the same. The months would of course have to be
about thirty and a bit days in length and February would still have an
extra day and be mandatory - everyone has to have February at the
I have no idea why I want this.
