Has anyone heard about this 'code' before? or the Sufi version?
My guess is that these both signify "code" in the same sense that
alchemical descriptions do: ie, that they have meanings veiled by their use
of language, as opposed to languages veiled by their use of enciphering.
"Semantic coding", as opposed to "syntactic coding".
