Why 7 days

So why is breaking up a month (lunar cycle) better 7/4 than 10/3 or 3/10 or 6/5. I would figure 5 weeks of 6 days is best for the proportional understanding/memory capacity of humans. So 7 proably happened by the flow of events thru history, not things like human cycles.

  1. I might have posted this before, or maybe goog lost some data - but I thought that maybe it's 4 weeks because of the 4 quadrants of the moon cycles. The full, noon, increasing and descreasing cresent.
