In approximately 750 A.D., an anonymous Gilbert Islander on a simple passage from his home island - Aranuka - to the nearest island of Kuria, was blown completely off course.  In the ensuing four weeks the navigator, for the first time, successfully reached the unknown (to the Gilberts) island of Truk - a distance of 1300 miles across open sea against trade winds. 
As a by product of advanced historical measurement it was later deduced that the structure of the Gilbert Islander's logic pattern in navigating from Aranuka to Truk, exactly duplicated that of the structural (navigational) projection of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.
