There are several patterns of thought
which are visible in the rongorongo representation of the week. A
few important patterns should be noted here:
1. The days of the week are not just
named after the 'planets', their astronomical traits are described.
Example: The Waxing and Waning Moon in Monday.
2. The harmonious
nature in balance
is shown everywhere. Example: Balancing the king of light at the start
of the week is the king of darkness at the end of the week
3. Each part must be balanced by a counterpart with opposite
characteristics. But also
each part must have similar counterparts in parallel 'worlds'. Example: New Moon,
winter, night and Wednesday are similar counterparts in the parallel 'worlds' of
month, year, day and week. These three patterns of thought will be made more clear when we
continue by examining the month and the year.
