1) It is up to "Authorities" in any paradigm (and to the managers of the archives) to assign credit for ideas in whatever manner they desire.
2) Origins of important, valid new ideas are rarely, but not usuall, found in the mind of one person.
3) "Authorites" (and archivists) will almost always misevaluate proposed ideas just as well as the originators of those ideas.
4) Brain structure (and the electrochemical mapping activities) saddle humans with a blind spot in their cognitive descriptions of "space."
