Lost Links: Buddhism in Europe?
Was the Phaistos Disk made by Pythagoras?
Was the Phaistos Disk of Crete made by Pythagoras in the 6th century BC? Pythagoras (c. 580–500 BC) was a contemporary of the Buddha Gotama (c. 624 – 544 BC) in India, he was about 36 years old when the Buddha entered Parinibbāna. If his teachings of "metempsychosis" (knowledge of past lives), was based on Dependent Origination as taught by the Buddha, the symbols on the Phaistos disk and the Linear A and Linear B scripts were "ideograms" to teach meditation step by step, and not the lost phonetic alphabets of ancient Greek dialects as currently thought.
