"His vision crawled with ghost hieroglyphs, translucent lines of symbols arranging themselves against the neutral backdrop of the bunker wall. He looked at the backs of his hands, saw faint neon molecules crawling beneath the skin, ordered by the unknowable code. He raised his right hand and moved it experimentally. It left a faint, fading trail of strobed afterimages."

Code converts one set of text/glyphs into something else numbers, bits in order to facilitate the transmission of data through telecommunications and storage in computers. Unicode is a unified universal encoding of all the characters/writing of all the world's living languages. Early coding systems include Morse code, Baudot code, ASCII, EDCDIC, Braille, signal flags and telegraph code. VRML and X3D render virtual 3d objects and scenes.
