I am reading the Book just now. Very lucid and smooth flowing in writing and far from academic jargons. When I saw this talk, I became unable to resist myself from commenting although I have not yet finished the book. However, I see Kaye as really not trustworthy, and the writer skips the matter without reviewing enough literature about the Bakshali Manuscript. Apparently, zero has philosophical significance and we see in the Pali canon where Buddha uses the word shunya in both general and philosophical significances. However, it is really interesting that why the writer focus to Cambodia if Buddhism and Hinduism were originated in India? It is true that Cambodia was Hindu and Buddhist empire once in the past. It is also true that many eastern asian scripts, including Khmer alphabetical system, have Indian Origin. Besides we do not see any noticeable mathematical development in Cambodia. India has every possibility of the birth place of zero. We see Brahmagupta (598-674 AD) already had used zero in his mathematics before so called Cambodian inscription which has been dated Saka era 605 or 683 AD. Here, it is worthy to notice that Saka era is itself an Indian calendar. In conclusion, just because we see the oldest use of zero in Cambodian inscription we cannot decide that zero was invented in Cambodia. Yes, the idea of finit and infinit are also found in Buddhism. Once, Buddha was asked whether cosmos is finit or infinit, see the link http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/mn/mn.063.than.html

Pythagoras was from Samos island which once was a part of Anatolia (Turkey) and he was typical eastern in his ideology and attaire. According to his successors, he traveled to India where he might had learnt Pythagorean theorem, spherical planet, infinite and transmigration of soul. However, many modern western scholars refuse this historical idea. Thanks to Prof. Thomas McEvilley and many others who dare to break the Eurocentrism. The concept of infinite is older than the concept of zero. The philosophical concept of zero is found in Buddhist texts but the concept of infinite seems to be exited before the Buddha specially in the Upanishads of the Hindus. In the Chula Mallunkya Putta Sutta, Buddha refuses to answer whether the Cosmos is eternal or not eternal and whether finite or infinite (http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/mn/mn.063.than.html). However, later Buddha as infinite light has been imagined. Amitabha Buddha means infinite light. The symbol of infinite light or wisdom is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endless_knot

1500 BC ago, Turkey was country of three civilizations: Hittite, Mitanni and Hurro. They were pagans and Indo Aryan. Hurrian girls might be most beautiful girls in the ancient world because they have been described as Hurrs or angels by semitics or Mesopotamians. When I see these girls with Adnan Oktor I believe that semitics were right. The soul of Turkey is not semitic but Indo-Aryan and Pagan. They must return to their pagan ancestors. Semitic religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam will not give peace. Rumi tried to understand but because of the fear of Islamic apostasy he could not renounce.

Flat Earth is an infamous myth that prevailed almost in every civilization. i.e. Egyptian, Mesopotamian and Greek. Abrahamic religions like Judaism, Christianity and Islam also adopted the same kind of idea. However, we see the first time Pythagoras proposes the idea of spherical Earth. I think he borrowed this idea from India. He is believed to travel to East. East means India, not Egypt. He might have traveled to India via Egypt, and learnt the famous Pythagorean theorem, the concept of transmigration of soul and spherical globe. His time was the age when Persian King Cyrus ruled the great territory of Earth and even Greece was under his empire. Persia was the center of oriental and occidental knowledge. However, India and Greece had great cultural and ideological reciprocity. Prof. Thomas McEvilley beautifully explains it in his book "The Shape of Ancient Thought: Comparative Studies in Greek and Indian Philosophies". Besides, the Indian taste of "Fables of Aesop" indicates that they had cultural relationship since even before the age of Cyrus. Indians have always been believing that the shape of universe is equivalent of the shape of egg, virtually, they call it Brahamand= the egg of Brahma. Other terms such like Khagol means Kha+gol = Sky+spherical, and Bhugol means Bhu+gol= planet+spherical. Brahmand Puran is Hindu mythology which deals with the creation of universe. In the 10th century, the famous Islamic scholar Abū Rayḥān al-Bīrūnī gives detail idea of India. He describes that how Indian astronomers differ from Greek and Islamic astronomers.
