As soon as the scribes of this creative period characterized by constant expansion of their professional interests, allowed medical observation and recipes in the body of written documents, the texts began to copy the next generation. Thus they were saved from oblivion. In this context, the question arises: whether to continue medical knowledge and related therapies developed independently from the body of traditional texts, allowing the formed gap between the written formulas and changing practices? I tend to think that this tradition in Mesopotamia has the same paralyzing effect which any written tradition has on the subject of development. History of Medicine worldwide confirms this phenomenon. Moreover, there is no textual evidence which would indicate that in Mesopotamia noticed the gap between tradition and practice. Perhaps, of course, that a thorough analysis of medical texts have revealed the following changes to the methods of treatment and use of medicines that have been added to the scribes copied text. Yet conservatism, which manifests itself, for example, in the mathematical literature, speaks against this possibility. A new application of existing scientific methods should create their own designs, as happened with those texts that give us information on mathematical astronomy.
