If you closely compare this cipher with that of the York Rite or Blue Lodge, you will see the
subtle differences but know that they are different. By knowing this cipher you will not be able to
decode a 'real' masonic cipher. This example has been presented for "entertainment purposes" and to
educate you about Masonic Ciphers, while keeping within the bounds of our obligations.

The use of symbols is no impediment to cryptanalysis however, and cryptanalysis is identical to that of other simple substitution schemes.

The advantage of steganography over cryptography alone is that messages do not attract attention to themselves, to messengers, or to recipients. An unhidden coded message, no matter how unbreakable it is, will arouse suspicion and may in itself be incriminating and in some countries encryption is illegal.
Steganography vs. Cryptography
Steganography’s goal is to keep the presence of a message secret, or hide the fact that communication is taking place
Cryptography’s goal is to obscure a message or communication so that it cannot be understood
Steganography and Cryptography make great partners. It is common practice to use cryptography with steganography
With these new techniques, a hidden message is indistinguishable from white noise. Even if the message is suspected, there is no proof of its existence. To actually prove there was a message, and not just randomness, the code needs to be cracked or the random number seed guessed. This feature of modern steganography is called "plausible deniability."

dont answer that.
Do It Anyway
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
