The Washington Post reports that the Babylonians did use Astrophysical Geometry earlier than the European Medieval Age. The news indicates surprise at the findings, but what if there is another story. Not traced in any way, but what if earlier western scholars recognized as the principal forerunners of empirical process came about their inspiration by another route not known? Travel across geographic regions was possible. The opportunity existed for some of the most revered scholars of antiquity to gain exposure to ideas they then translated into their normal cultural context. Attribution to what would be seen as a remote culture may have seemed either irrelevant or counter-productive to the goals of the moment.
