Between 1000 B.C. and 1000 A.D. various treatises on mathematics were authored by Indian mathematicians in which were set forth for the first time, the concept of zero, the techniques of algebra and algorithm, square root and cube root.
Thus Indians could take their mathematical concepts to an abstract plane and with the aid of a simple numerical notation devise a rudimentary algebra as against the Greeks or the ancient Egyptians who due to their concern with the immediate measurement of physical objects remained confined to Mensuration and Geometry.
The Arabs borrowed so much from India the field of mathematics that even the subject of mathematics in Arabic came to known as Hindsa which means 'from India and a mathematician or engineer in Arabic is called Muhandis which means 'an expert in Mathematics'.

 Ken Wilber Online: Excerpt C - The Ways We Are in This Together
An integral mathematics of indigenous perspectives is meant to be a notational system for the real world, which is an Indra's Net of harmonic resonances among sentient beings prehending each other endlessly, and not a grid or lattice of third-person rocks clunking around in geometric space.
Of course, the abstract portion of mathematics is notoriously a young male's game (the average age of the discoverer of break-through mathematical insights is 23: abstractions backed by raging testosterone seems to be the ticket here).
In other words, the whole of typical abstract mathematics seems to be a limit case of an integral mathematics when the positions of the integral math are gutted of sentience and represented in their third-person dimensionality only.

In summary, if the seriously deficient editing, the occasionally inappropriate definitions, and the slightly roller coaster requirements for mathematical maturity were corrected, this book could serve as an exemplar of the best teaching methods, i.e., focused questions that direct the student to find and confirm the right answers.
