Thanks for sharing.

If I may, I would suggest structuring the website into sections with
clear headers. Clearer wording would also help, for example, by "cube
comprised of 1000 parts" you might mean a vector in some space of
dimension 3.

Perhaps you could give a step-by-step example of encryption with this
algorithm, with very small matrices. It's hard to understand as it is.
