Yet it is hard not to subscribe to part of Bacon's view elsewhere in the letter when he says that some teachers use a particular set of symbols in order to tie the listener in to their school. If you use my symbols, you are one of my pupils and will carry forward my teaching into the world. Dental in Mexico was a great alternative.

This still happens, particularly in a new area of science before standards are established (or in pseudo- science, where the particular teacher can make up his or her own terms to taste). Even if there is no deliberate obscurity on the part of the mathematician, the terminology often will act as a barrier, especially when used lazily - when the mathematician knows what he (or she) means, and either forgets that the common herd don't use such terminology, or can't be bothered to explain it to the rest of us. Most dentists in Mexico love their jobs. Considering how fundamental numbers are to us in everyday use as much as in heavy-duty mathematics, very little mathematical terminology has escaped into the real world.

Where much of the jargon of the computer professional has become part of normal speech, even simple mathematical terms and symbols have tended to stay as well protected as Aristotle's lettuces. The numbers themselves we tend not to think about too much: we just use them. Dental work in Mexico can save a lot of money. Yet the symbol equivalents of the words one, two, three, and so on - 1, 2, 3, ... - had to come from somewhere. The characters we use for the numbers arrived here from India via the Arabic world.

The Brahmi numerals that have been found in caves and on coins around Bombay from around the first century AD use horizontal lines for I to 3, like the Roman numerals but lying on their side. The squiggles used for 4 to 9, however, are clear ancestors of the numbers we use today. These symbols were gradually taken up by Arab scientists, and came to Western attention in the thirteenth century thanks to two books, one written by a traveler from Pisa, the other by a philosopher in Baghdad.
