I've read loads of those things about buddhism and Pythagorus. But I also read that Sylvester Graham
was one of the leading figures in the vegetarianism movement in Britain.
Do you think it's possible, however, that vegetarians actually existed in many places of the world without the idea originating from one place? I mean, do you think that somebody 'invented' not eating meat and then this spread or maybe there were several people who stopped eating meat and became popular for this in their respective parts of the world?
