He combined the mathematical disciplines of the Arabic, Druid, Phoenician, Egyptian and Essene sciences. As a teacher, he was respected and feared. Many people considered him dangerous. In an attempt to safeguard his school, his students were sworn to secrecy and were not allowed to write anything down.,Certainly, he is held in the highest regard as one of the preeminent mathematicians of all time.
