Note (45.) to "History of the 'Christian' Trinity - HIST"
45. "Pythagoras (6th century B. C.), with a knowledge gained (according to ancient claims) by years of actual resident and deep study among the Egyptians, ... Chaldeans [Babylonians], ... and Indian Brahmins, founded at Crotona a religious brotherhood for the reformation of society, besides the study of philosophy. The science of numbers (mathematics and astronomy) was the basis of theoretical teaching developing into numerical symbolism and the displaying of dots as units in symmetrical patterns (as on our dice and dominoes), each pattern group becoming a symbolic unit and thereby becoming the essence of cosmic substance." - Encyclopedia Americana, 1957 ed., p. 362, v. 23.
