“But I was careful not to refer to these Westerners as “Great Officals,” and corrected Governor Liu Yin-shu when he referred to the Jesuits Regis and Fridelli … as if they were honored imperial commissioners. For even though some of the Western methods are different from our own, and may even be an improvement, there is little about them that are new. The principles of mathematics all derive from the Book of Changes, and the Western are Chinese in origin: this Algebra – “A-erh-chu-pa-erh” – springs from an eastern world. And though it was indeed the Westerners who showed us something our ancient calendar experts did not know – namely how to calculate the angles of the northern pole – this but shows the truth of what Chu Hsi arrived at through his investigation of things: the earth is like the yoke within an egg.”
