Does the Week "Really" Start on Monday or Sunday?

Well, if you ask me - it starts right now, in this moment. Oops, it is not midnight on Sunday or Monday? Let me put it this way, Do you see the future? Of course not. And what you perceive of the past, are only records or your own memory in the present. There is only the present moment. Sure, calendars are useful to keep things in a comprehensible order, to track change, and to make more or less precise forecasts that help decisions. But the calendar system itself is arbitrary. It is a matter of belief, a social contract.

Physical laws you say? We are into philosophy of time here, or rather metaphysics. Physics makes very good models of the phenomena, but even the best map is not the territory.

Note that this written in present time.
