Evoke Oracle Game


Alternate reality games are hidden in things humans consult as oracles. Ancient Greek believe that the oracle of Delphi was the omphalos - the navel of the world.


Navel is equal to 54.


N = 14, A = 1, V = 22, E = 5 and L = 12.

Navel = N + A + V + E + L

           = 14+1+22+5+12

           = 54 (Evoke Game)


Note that the 26 letters of the English alphabet are assigned numerical values as Hebrew letters have numerical values. A is 1, B is 2, C is 3, Y is 25 and Z is 26. 


Giving numerical values to letters or words is numerology or gematria.


The oracle at the center of divination is number. Evoke oracle game is therefore a game of number.


Ifa oracle is basically equal to the sixteen principal Odu. Consulting Ifa oracle is evoking numbers. Each Odu is equal to four bits and the sixteen principal Odu are equal to base 16.


The sixteen digits in base 16 numerical system are the sixteen tokens in ludo game.  We know that each digit is a sudoku cube equal to 54 (Evoke Game). Therefore, consulting Ifa oracle is evoking ludo game or sudoku.


Throwing Ikin seed on opon Ifa tray is throwing a dice on a ludo board. Unraveling the dice from Ikin is solving a mystery or playing Evoke alternate reality game.


A die has six faces numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. 

Sum of the six faces is 21.

1+2+3+4+5+6 = 21


21 is Ikin - the 21 palm kernels in Ifa.


Babalawo (Yoruba geomancers or diviners) are gamers playing games. They throw dice on a ludo board and count their tokens whenever they throw Ikin on the Opon Ifa and draw the Odu lines or markings. They are Evoke Oracle game players.


Revealing a game concealed in an oracle such as Ifa or Sikidy is evoking oracle game.
