A tesseract with the 16 principal Odu. |

The sixteen principal Odu are the sixteen vertices of a tesseract. Ifa literary corpus has sixteen chapters, and each chapter is comprised of sixteen verses. Each vertex is a chapter such that the sixteen vertices of the tesseract are the sixteen chapters of the Ifa literary corpus.

The sixteen principal Odu are:

- || || || || - Oyeku
- || || || | - Okanran
- || || | || - Oturupon
- || || | | - Iwonrin
- || | || || - Ika
- || | || | - Ofun
- || | | || - Iwori
- || | | | - Osa
- | || || || - Obara
- | || || | - Odi
- | || | || - Ose
- | || | | - Otura
- | | || || - Irosun
- | | || | - Irete
- | | | || - Ogunda
- | | | | - Ogbe

Note that each Odu is made up of either a double line or a single line or both.

When converting from Ifa to binary numbers, double line is equal to 0 and single line is equal to 1.

|| = 0

| = 1

Examples:

- Oyeku (|| || || ||) = 0000
- Ika (|| | || ||) = 01000
- Otura (| || | |) = 1011

Therefore, the sixteen principal Odu are the following sixteen binary numbers:

- 0000
- 0001
- 0010
- 0011
- 0100
- 0101
- 0110
- 0111
- 1000
- 1001
- 1010
- 1011
- 1100
- 1101
- 1110
- 1111

A tesseract is equal to base 16. The sixteen decimal numbers in the base 16 numerical system are obtained when the sixteen principal Odu are concerted from base 2 to base 10.

Base 2 is the southern kingdom of Judah, base 10 is the northern kingdom of Israel, and converting from base 2 to base 10 is relocating the tesseract from Judah to Israel.

When converted from base 2 to base 10, the sixteen binary numbers representing the sixteen principal Odu are the following decimal numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.
