Brainwashed into thinking that the calendar you and 'everyone else' use is perfectly normal? A chaotic calendar in which months are made to vary in length from 28 to 31 days; an unnatural calendar which passes over the existence of solstices and equinoxes, thus in its ignorance having the year begin at a totally arbitrary moment; a split, polycyclic calendar whose dates do not tell you anything about the day of the week they fall on? You believe it is scientific that economists (with politicians following in their wake) treat a small increase or decrease, when comparing two months or quarters of that calendar, as 'significant' while the inaccuracy of that calendar itself may be as much as 8.0 %; that meteorologists claim that a new season starts on the first day of a month on a calendar which does not even recognize the natural quarters of the year? And on top of that you are also happy with exclusivist names such as August(us) for the eighth month and incorrect names such as September (Seventh Month) for the ninth month? Then, skip this book. Write in your old January-to-December diary that this was the day that you consciously decided to stay stuck to Gregory and the whole lot forever. Not fully brainwashed, perhaps never brainwashed at all, and interested in a calendar which far surpasses a haphazard and inaccurate, traditional 'system' of chronology? Then, read about the basics of devising a systematic calendar and the way in which the Quaternary Metric World Calendar meets the requirements for an adequate arrangement of the days of the solar year on Earth. (Sorry, the standard number of fingers on two human hands is not relevant to this arrangement.) Read about the Year-Week-Day and Year-Month-Day codes and the names for the (more than ten) months of the year and for the (fewer than ten) days of the week which are being proposed in connection with the Metric dates. And see what a diary which is good for any and every year looks like, or rather may look like. (This one is made complete with fifty pictures, varying from truly global to very personal.) A Metric diary needs no crackpot additives, but in a mixed social environment or in a stage of transition Gregorian dates will no doubt come in handy. (So this one still shows them too.) In the near future you may want to write down in your new North-to-South diary when you consciously decided to change over to a calendar which is transparently perpetual in itself and inclusive in all respects.
