Here the fundamental basis for the rituals of Free Masonry and most of the 20th Century "Western" Secret Societies were established by indigenous Africans, whose descendants are now despised for their Sable Skin, Woolly Hair, Thick Lips, Broad Nose and even rejected from the Inner Circles for the same reason.


The ancients, including the Greeks and Romans, visited this Grand Lodge to obtain the "Highest Degrees" in human learning. Here they were introduced to Philosophy, Law, Religion, Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Astronomy, Astrology, Medicine, History, and all of the other subdivisions of the "Seven Liberal Arts.


Even King Solomon Of Israel, Moses of the Haribu religion, Jesus Christ, and others of world fame, had to visit this Grand Lodge for their education in the Mysteries Of The Osirica.

The History of 'Aborigine' Ogboni, could be traced to that era. Egyptian's Horus Edfu Texts and of Sharu (priest) Kings of Sumeria civilization sometimes between 12,000 BCE, and from 4500BC in Ife-Oodaye. That period of antiquity and a geological era, very long ever before the arrival of the legendary Oduduwa himself to lle-ife, around 4th - 5th centuries A.D. The language spoken was 'Ife' and not 'Yoruba'.


The Egyptians believed that the Temple of the Sun was the physical, geographical landmark leading to the spot where there was a hidden opening into the underground dwelling of their gods – a place which the ancient Egyptians called the Duat or ‘Heaven’. The Greek historian, Herodotus confirmed that the source-river of the Nile as the Niger. NASA Satellite imaging published online shows that the Niger was once largest river in East and West Africa, feeding many lesser bodies of water, including the Nile, thus confirming Herodotus that the Niger fed the Nile in antiquity.

This Heaven of ancient Egypt was in fact close to a body of water referred to in The Egyptian Book of the Dead as a “Bight” and it is also said to be located within the vicinity of a confluence of two “Great Rivers”. The only Bights on the African continent are ‘Bight of Biafra’ and ‘Bight of Benin’, both within Nigeria’s borders. The confluence of two Great rivers is the Niger/Benue confluence located not too far from Nsukka.


The Book of the Dead makes another reference to two bodies of water as an “exceedingly great double nest”, of which one is a “purifying…Great Green Lake” and the other a “Traverser of Millions of Years”. Certainly the Traverser of Millions of Years is a reference to the Great River Niger whose waters traverse all of North Africa. “Double Nest” is a direct allusion to the River Niger/Omambala/Ezu double confluence, which in ancient times was called Akwu ora, meaning in ‘Nest of the Sun.’


Even in modern day Nigeria, you only have to cross one country (Niger), in order to get to Algeria or Libya, and to get to Sudan and Egypt via Chad. So, ancient Nigeria would have been a real Garden of Eden to those indegenous practitoners of Ifa, who lived there. It would have served as a gateway to the West, North, East and South of Africa. To those ancient Nigerian, it would have seem like possessing the number one prime estate asset in the whole continent.


The Secret of how to get to and from ancient Nigerian, would only have been known to the initiates, which they would have protected at all cost. In fact, these initiates (Babalawo (keepers of the secret)) fraternities, who acted as board of directors, and Babalawo Ogboni fraternities, who acted as CEO, were the pioneer of Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations. They were the Akkadian Priest/Kings, Sharru-kin (“Rightful King”) of Uruk. The image above is to visually illustrate what path ancient River Niger could have flowed through, in order to be the source of the Nile River. The path drawn and the width of the river is purely hypothetical, however, according to Herodotus and NASA satellite imaging technology, 'flow', it did.

Ifa Elements Table

While no one could precisely say what motivate 'ogboni' cult or confraternity, to come into being in Ife-Oodaye, but postulations in Yoruba mythology, shed light on the pre-Oduduwa era in the IIe-Ife, when 'Obatala' and Oreluere were the ruling chieftains of the Aborigine Ife-speaking community.


'Awo' ogboni, among so many other 'Awos'(i.e cults) in Ife then, became so prominent and relevant, more as a pressure group to protest the unceremonious arrival of the great colonial master in history, (i.e.) Oduduwa.


The Aborigine Ogboni Fraternity is the Traditional Religion of the Yoruba's and indeed African Traditional Religion Worldwide. The importance of every good thing in life is faith and believes. The truth is, if you find a faith with no obstacles, it is most likely to be a faith that doesn't lead to anywhere important.

The world is created on the foundation of tradition. Before Christ, before Mohammed, tradition has being in place. When God wanted to create the world, he said "come, let create…." Who are "us" God was referring to? They are the other creators that are not angles but are super beings with lots of power. The sea constituted about 75% (percent) of the entire World. Right in the deep sea, we have the Yemoja.


Ifa Tray

Aborigine Ogboni Worshipers leads, while others follows. Ogboni members are people who have seen light by worshiping Onile Ogboduora (God Almighty) in truth and in spirit. Which is the reason why their prayers are being answered quickly.


The Ogboni recognizes the presence of the elemental forces of creation. The elements are: Earth, Water and Air. Ogboni uses the Edan (image) to represent man, the intelligent centre of life, using it to visualize positively and to invoke the virtues and powers of the primordial ancestors -communication with the spiritual and elemental world is constant, for man has to be guided in his battle to discover who he is.


The method of communication varies but, the most recognized one is the Ifa (oracle), through oracle of God force, man is spiritually educated as the way he should live. Aborigine Ogboni is a Religion, just as we have Christianity and Islamic Religion. Ogboni is a religion that is built on truth equality and fairness. The rolling ball is what we call the Meridinlogun (16), in the African Traditional Religion. These Meridinlogun are the things we find out details from. They are the oracles that reveals mysteries, and the foundation of early civilizations. The Mysteries of Oshuruca (Osirica).


We cannot even begin to comprehend the power that these ancient Ifa Priests had, and the respect they must have been given by the ancient people. Therfore, they must have taken their, devised (Ifa) computer compatible binary coding system, to go forth and conquer the world. Even modern humams are still in awe of the power of computers.

Orunmila, Babalawo, Computer, Divination


Orunmila, in order to make access to the retrieval of the Divine Message (Ifa) easy, devised the computer

compatible binary coding system, thousands of years before the emergence of computer consciousness in so-called modern man! So, Ifa is preserved in binary coded format and is output Parable - Format.


Computer Science is the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression and mechanization of the

methodical processes (or algorithms).


It underlies the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of and access to information,

whether such information is encoded in bits and bytes in a computer memory or transcribed in genes and protein

structures in a human cell.


The illustration below shows the activities during Ifa divination.


It displays the basic steps during the divination from the point of listening to client problems and then to the

prescription of Ogun (medicine).

However this system can be abused. Hence a fail-safe system was incooperated. Which meant that after the solution to the client's problem has been found, the Babalawo must recite 10 solution related poems, and the client must choose one which best matches their initial problem.
