Brief history lesson. There was a special technique thought up by a man named Lester Hill in 1930, that gave a every letter a number in an arithmetic sequence. For example:

A=26n+1

B=26n+2

C=26n+3

...

Z=26n+26

where n can be any number.

By converting a matrice of words to number format then multiplying the matrice by a specified coding matrix, to encode it. When you return the numbers to letters you get a jumble of letters. To reverse the process you multiply by the coding matrices inverse.

Maybe the center symbol is the first letter to a word and the surrounding numbers are the rest of it but in an encoded format.
