Can you crack this cipher of mine? Each 6×6 box is a word; therefore there are 26 words. All words are English. The text is read left to right, top to bottom. As might be guessed, the 36 squares per 6×6 box represent one letter or digit 0-9.

    $\begingroup$ I inserted the image into the puzzle body, and I also removed the second question from the title. It might be best to ask that as a sub-question in the comments here. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Is there an error in the box in the second row, fourth column? It is the only one with two open circles. $\endgroup$ Jul 21, 2020 at 0:37

    $\begingroup$ I gave this a shot but didn't get anywhere. If anyone else wants to try, here's a transcription of the symbols in each square (in order OΔ─│┼╲╱╳, ordering the locations A-Z then 0-9): D7R1K 4B 83D7NV8 99OC7 NB CTI1K AQQT 4H C6FVU IU 1KLYQTUP H9TOR OA S8 T305 7F PQ68SCRA AQQT 4H C6FVU IU 7W9U 7Q8PKCRD 40 G6U VIV7H $\endgroup$

Plaintext:

There is nothing which is secret save it shall be revealed; there is no work of darkness save it shall be made manifest in the light (2 Nephi 30:17, Book of Mormon)

Cipher:

I solved it as a substitution cipher that is both homophonic (many cipher letters to one plain letter) and polyphonic (many plain letters to one cipher letter). I suspect it is in fact a polyalphabetic cipher, but I haven't figured out the pattern to the use of alphabets.

The grid I ended up with:
