The Strangeness Index is an arbitrary mechanism for measuring how far outside the "ordinary" a phenomenon or event falls. The concept has applications in a variety of disciplines from theoretical physics to the parallax sciences of psionics and radionics. The theory underlying it: the farther outside the "ordinary" an event falls, the higher it ranks on the strangeness index.
In the realm of human experience, such an event would be either difficult to believe or difficult to remember, despite direct observation of the phenomena.
This section of NewsBase is devoted to documentary (though perhaps not irrefutable) forms or evidence of an event or phenomenon that ranks high on the strangeness index. We invite you to view it with the objective of broadening your perspective on reality and sharpening your analytic abilities.
If we place any deceptive material in this section, we'll tell you that in advance so you know the presentation is an intentional opportunity to test your perceptual and analytic skills.
Pine Bush, NY, 1996: Security Team & Tech Crew tasked to the area, where radar had tracked an object classified as "anomalous aerial activity" intermittently for several days. Recorded activity included abrupt directional and velocity changes; mid-air stops from high speeds; periodic changes in object's coloring and radiant light intensity; theodolite-measured / in-atmosphere velocities of up to M-10/M-12 or 7,000 mph; and simultaneous ground-based activity ranking so high on the Strangeness Index (SI) that several crew members were treated for varying degrees of disorientation and shock (not the least of which was the loss of control over bodily functions by a sizable member of the security team). [censored] photos taken with simple 35mm Nikkon using 200asa and a 1,500mm lens. Photos avail uncategorized ambient EM anomalies, some of which were not visible to the naked eye.
