The only tools used is creating an algorithm is the human
mind and a vague notion of what a "computer", whatever that
is, can do. Following this step, you could test your
theories by writing a program in C++.

I wrote a program that simulates a 36 character, 10 rotor cipher w/ a
reflector. So, it can be done.

You miss his point. You wrote a program that implements an
existing algorithm. You need the algorithm before writing the
program, so the program can't create the algorithm. (Of course,
it's probable that the original poster just expressed himself
poorly. Which IMHO doesn't bode good; people who cannot express
themselves clearly and precisely in their native language don't
have what it takes to become competent programmers.)
