That's probably how ancient calendars were established...by following constellations and moon phases.
maybe because the the intelligent aspect of Universe remade its means of experiencing itself seven times, some reboots better than others so by cycle 7 it said, "ok, some remakes were worse than the one that preceded it, this one ain't so bad, I'm done, if there's to be any more reboots let the machine reboot itself carry on without me"... so came 8 and 12 and 9.
The seven day week is derived from Genesis in the Bible. Six days God worked and on the seventh day he rested. But prior to most of the world adopting this biblical standard, empries had different lengths of the week. The Romans had a nine day week.
You can thank the Jews for the weekend. In the Mayan/Aztec calendar They didn't have weekends - but they did have the "five useless days" after the winter's shortest days. - ( they had a base 20 number system).

BTW - Why 360 degrees in a circle? Thank the Mesopotamians. They had a base 60 number system which we still use min/hour. and also knew about the precession - that's why that song"age of Aquarius..."
