thanks for additional knowledge
I can see our friends looking for the cause of chemical reactions
becomin impatient (lol) so I ll stay short on this
adhya in sanskrit meant many things, I dont have the full reference here with me
but I would not consider a coincidence that one of these meanings is also equivalent to greek cause
अधिपति adhipati [adhi-pati ] m. maître, chef, supérieur; prince, maître suprême, roi | phil. [nyāya] cause efficace d'un phénomène | var. adhipa id.
अध्यस् adhyas [adhi-as_2 ] v.  pr. (adhyasyati) pp. (adhyasta) placer ou jeter sur | phil. imputer à tort.
think of the challenges of translation, transliteration, and phonetics at the time
anyway, the jist is, that Aristotle and the Greeks may just have been relaying knowledge that may come from far before their times, told to them by who knows what troubadours and storytellers coming from afar, the source of which is lost in time and space...and we are still trying to trace back....to work out our physics....
