CALENDAR COMEDY

by | 2018 | Inspiration, The Lills

A good friend of ours showed us this funny video of a comedian taking a look at our calendar and the revisions it could undergo. It made us laugh and it made us look at our days, months and years a little differently.

Much of the yearly calendar that we adopted developed around religious, social and commercial motives. Meanwhile, we have an object in our sky (the moon) that cycles nearly every 28 days, giving us a localized timing system that we can see with our very own eyes. The core of human reproduction (a woman’s menstrual cycle) happens to revolve around a 28 day cycle as well.

As Dave Gorman points out in the video, a 28 day month and 13 month year would be very regular and systematic. Every day of the month would fall on the same weekday of the month, year after year. Each month would have the exact same number of days, monthly statistics in any field would be more accurate and scheduling would be easier.

It makes us wonder how different life would be if we scheduled ourselves with nature’s rhythm, rather than so off beat.
