The codex is a manuscript, used since the fourth century, made of parchment or papyrus and is the predecessor of the modern book. It is useful for secret messages that may need to be hastily destroyed as it corrodes easily. Leonardo Da Vinci also used backwards writing and other codes on the codex for added secrecy.
This website comes in two parts, one is a modern codex, providing information and secrets on a wide range of subjects that will help you in life (currently the French part of this site has more of this).
