A big percentage of the – by now – over 700 global Flood legends, mentioned exactly eight people who were spared and survived. It is uncanny that this number is handed down as fact so uniformly, instead of ten or five or some other random number.
EGYPT: In ancient Egypt one Flood hero was Toth who survived the Deluge along with his Seven Sages.
The Egyptian ‘Ogdoad (does the Latin word for 8 ‘octo’ from that?) were a group of eight survivors led by the main character Nun and his wife Naunet. Nun or Nu (Noah) is pictured in Egyptian art as upholding his boat with the seven other survivors here:

INTRO: We apply the Euhemerist approach for historical origins — that thank God modern Chinese scholars also follow now — and so take “myths” serious as ’embellished legends’ that carry a factual core of true historical original characters who became super-naturally glorified via man worship & deification. We do not accept the Darwinian dogma (as Wicked Pedia uses) that the ancients purposely spun unfounded wild tales about themselves creatingfictional primo-patriarchs, especially considering the fact that these legendary characters are mentioned by other ethne as well. Case in point: Chi You(蚩尤) patriarch Txiv Yawg of 12 Miao (Hmong) tribes, was mentioned by Chinese as the son of Yan Di(炎帝), albeit with different spelling, and without deification, of course, depicted as an ‘enemy’ defeated by Huang Di at the Battle of Zhuolu. (proof is in the Han dynasty relief on the right here⇒ compared to a nicer Hmong statue below⇓)
[Sect.1 by Ulrich Theobald, diagram & sect. 2 by Lu.] The Yellow Emperor (Huang Di 黃帝) is considered to be the ancestor of the Chinese people. The clan of the Yellow Emperor (Huangdi zu 黃帝族) and the clan of Yan Di his brother (Yandi zu 炎帝族), are thought to have represented the Qijia culture 齊家文化 in modern Gansu and Shaanxi provinces.
Later the tribes obviously moved east to found the cultures of the Central Plain 中原 as basic cultures of Chinese civilization, with a people later named 華夏 (or simply Hua 華 or Xia 夏) who founded China’s first dynasty, the Xia 夏 under ‘Da Yu’ the Great!
