The Cryptogram as A Factor In Symbolic Philosophy (From The Old Big Book)
QUESTION: Why all the secrecy of the ancient wisdom??
ANSWER: It was necessary to protect it. No story dealing with Symbolism would be complete without a section devoted to the consideration of Cryptograms. The use of the Cipher has long been recognized as indispensable in the military and diplomatic circles, but the modern world has overlooked the important role played by the cryptogram in literature and philosophy. If the art of deciphering cryptograms could be made popular it would result in the discovery of much hitherto unsuspected wisdom possessed by both ancient and mediaeval philosophy.
