### How I disproved the existence of the week

I’m done with my exams this semester.

At the moment, I’m taking a few days off before restarting work on my major project. We’ve got plenty to catch up on for that one.

It appears that today is Friday, but it feels very much like a Sunday.

From the above sentence, we say that

On the other hand, most people tell me the days are ordered in this manner:

Combining

Note that we can freely interchange the Fridays and Sundays from

However, the order of days as given in

I would rather believe what I sense rather than plainly agreeing to what others tell me. So

And thus, it should be clear that the days of the week as presented in

On another note, I borrowed something from the mathematics library this afternoon:

Should be an interesting read. I am partly familiar with both Pythygoras and Riemann. Everything in between should fall into place like a well oiled

From the above sentence, we say that

*Fridays and Sundays are one and the same*(**statement 1**).On the other hand, most people tell me the days are ordered in this manner:

*Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday…*(**statement 2**)Combining

**statement 1**and**2**:*Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday…*(**statement 3**)Note that we can freely interchange the Fridays and Sundays from

**statement 2**due to the relationship given in**statement 1**.However, the order of days as given in

**statement 3**violate that given in**statement 2**. Hence,*the truth of*(**statements 1**and**2**are mutually exclusive**statement 4**): they cannot be true at the same time.I would rather believe what I sense rather than plainly agreeing to what others tell me. So

*(***statement 1**is true and**statement 2**is false.**statement 5**)*[We’re short on time here. I’ll just jump a few steps ahead and you can figure out the intermediate proofs at your own pace.]*And thus, it should be clear that the days of the week as presented in

**statement 2**do not exist.*Q.E.D.**On another note, I borrowed something from the mathematics library this afternoon:
