Several cultures invented zero:

"The first recorded zero appeared in Mesopotamia around 3 B.C. The Mayans invented it independently circa 4 A.D. It was later devised in India in the mid-fifth century, spread to Cambodia near the end of the seventh century, and into China and the Islamic countries at the end of the eighth."

The Indian invention was supposed to be inspired by Buddhist nirvana.  Mayan invention was driven by the "long count" calendar.  Indian records are poor, because of the material they were written on (palm leaf books) that didn't survive in a humid wet climate.  Cambodia did get its culture from S India, and N India Buddhists would have influenced China and Persia (Islam).  The Mayan invention seems to be truly independent.  Since Mesopotamia used the sexagesimal count (1-60) I don't see why they would independently invent the zero, and they were in communication with India for the prior 2500 years.

Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

I think the phone companies circulated that idea.

No, in Winter time, you charge your cell phone, by holding it, while rubbing your rubber shoes across your wool rug ;-)
