The problem of the meaning to be given to the large changes that occur over the weekend in the way young people, and not so young people, live their lives is discussed.
People who lead lives which can be defined as generically regular (as regards work, study, etc.) from Monday to Friday completely change their ways of being and living on Friday night.
In order to emphasize, face, or sustain this change, drugs, especially designer drugs, are frequently used.
The hypothesis is advanced that this may mean a rejection of the existential continuum that characterizes linear time and be a return to the phasic cyclical time attitude typical of ancient ages.
Methods and attitudes for dealing with this problem are proposed.
