The Lo Shu Square

Also called a Magic Square.

Each row adds up to 15.

You'll notice that the even numbers are out-numbered by the odd numbers. They're also located in the corners of the square. According to Chinese legend, the Lo Shu square appeared 4000 years ago on the back of a turtle that crawled out of the Lo river. They believed that the universe is based on mathematic principles, and that these numbers were the key to invisible forces that governed heaven and earth.

-From a book on Feng Shui by Lillian Too.
