Around 4,000 years ago, according to ancient Chinese history, the sage Yu saw a turtle emerge from the Lo river carrying on its back a pattern of nine numbers arranged in a grid. The eight numbers around the edge of the grid corresponded to the Eight Trigrams of the Later Heaven arrangement of the pa kua, with the ninth pivotal point located in the centre. This arrangement became known as the lo shu magic square.
