1Chinese literature dating from as early as 650 BC tells the legend of Lo Shu
2or "scroll of the river Lo". In ancient China there was a huge flood. The great
3king Yu tried to channel the water out to sea where then emerged from the water
4a turtle with a curious figure/pattern on its shell; circular dots of numbers
5which were arranged in a three by three grid pattern such that the sum of the
6numbers in each row, column and diagonal was the same: 15, which is also the
7number of days in each of the 24 cycles of the Chinese solar year.

9This pattern, in a certain way, was used by the people in controlling the river.
