Jacobs Ladder Code

Jacobs Ladder Code or Flip-Flop Code is named after the Jacob's Ladder toy, in which blocks of wood flip and flop back and forth when you move the top piece.
This toy consisting of blocks of wood held together by strings or ribbons. It is a toy that does some very weird things.When the ladder is held at one end, blocks appear to cascade down the strings. This effect is a visual illusion which is the result of one block after another flipping over. It may be considered a kinetic illusion, where the blocks appear to change position when they do not.Its name Jacob's Ladder comes from the biblical ladder to heaven, mentioned in Genesis 28:12.

Jacobs Ladder Code or Flip-Flop Code is a numeric code, with numbers representing the letters.
Odd letters in the plaintext are represented by the old standard: A=1, B=2 format.

Even letters in the plaintext are represented by the reverse: A=26, B=25 format.

So every alternating letter in the plaintext is represented by a different code number. You flip/flop back and forth between the two codes as you go through the message.

Aleen and Jacob were playing in their aunt's backward when they found something scribbled on the ladder. It always stands there without anyone noticing it . However today it was different as it had the following message on its 3rd step '23 4 13 16 13 18 18 5 '.As they drew closer to it it started getting blurred till there was a complete blackout !!

Now you find yourself in your room sitting by your bedside . "Oh !So it was all a dream "you say . But wait ,because you find a piece of paper with the exact message just two steps from bed. 

Now it's upon you guys to solve this problem and decode it out of a dream .GO GO GO !
