I'm guessing the Longzhong plan is what "divide strategy" means.

I think that was historical.

Yeah historically Zhuge Liang had no part in Bowang.

But even going by the novel, I still have no idea what you mean. Do you mean that Zhuge Liang is unnaturally prescient as to what will happen?

In some way yes, is like he make a strategy to the things happen in there that he want or he can foresee all that will happen and based in this make a Perfect strategy (in this case "Divine" due he know all will happen).

And apparently this phrase was been "confirmed"(or say again) when they won the second battle (this against Cao Ren),when Zhuge liang uses Fire and Water to win.

In the novel, no one is a match for Kongming

top 5:
Zhuge Liang
Pang Tong
Jia Xu
Guo Jia
Fa Zheng

so many talented advisors from the 3K era, its hard to narrow it down to a couple.
