What I am reminded of is the Ifa Assignment of the Cardinal Points found in the Holy Odu
Okanran Ogunda that says:
After the creation of the earth, Orunmila sat at the middle of the island founded by him and said thus to the principle Ọdus that descended with him .
Ogbe: Order you the region where the sun rises. Sit down at the east.
Oyeku: Order you the region where the sun sets. Sit down at the west.
Iwori: sit down at the north.
Odi: sit down at the south.
You other Odu, sit down diametrically opposite each other in a circle.
Orunmila then called the Olodus and said to them
You see what there is here. Mark this well.
This city shall in the future be called Ife.
The hill on which I am seated shall grow these Palm trees bearing monthly twelve manners of fruits.
Sixteen of which shall be used for consultation in divination.
And the leaves will be used for healing of the nations.
Better than any other place, the Awos will have here the Ọdus,
Sixteen Ọdus have come with me.
These will have children and shall live around you.
Ife will have a great people.
But my Awos shall hold sway and tell people what is the will of The eternal Olorun Eleda Olodumare.
Clearly... This aint just about a bowl of nuts... This... is cosmic science..
