Frankly my own opinion is that they share the same type of brain
physiology -- they are all human. Other than that Buddhism's roots
are "Indo-European". Some of the later philosphical developments
clearly show the influence of Greek thought. In fact the Tibetans
have preserved Greek dialectics -- which has been destroyed in Greece
and Northern India. THey also still incorporate Greek medicine in
their medical system as well. But not because Tibetans are indo-
European. They adopted certain cultural aspects from Indians.
