Critical Commentary

AO: This 2016 paper by Aimé Segla is in the UC e-scholarship respository as an open access paper. It views formal mathematics through the interpretation of Yoruba sky knowledge (Yoruba Cosmology) and attempts to demonstrate that linguistic codes elaborated from the Yoruba conception of the sky are binary and hexadecimal codes that imply Algebraic Boolean structure or Group Structure.
