Answer

-You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.

-You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.

-You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

The Atbash cipher is used to decipher this teaser. The Atbash cipher is a very specific case of a substitution cipher where the letters of the alphabet are reversed. In other words, all A's are replaced with Z's, all B's are replaced with Y's, and so on.

Because reversing the alphabet twice will get you actual alphabet, you can encipher and decipher a message using the exact same algorithm.

Here is the answer key:
A-Z
B-Y
C-X
D-W
E-V
F-U
G-T
H-S
I-R
J-Q
K-P
L-O
M-N
N-M
O-L
P-K
Q-J
R-I
S-H
T-G
U-F
V-E
W-D
