Default Cultural Extension (Cx): [HASS] Symbols

From p.435...

Could someone please teach me how to interpret or to use the value of this field? The other three [HASS] variables--Homogeneity, Acceptance, and Strangeness--while not things one runs into in many games, make themselves clear as to what high or low values mean.

Symbols, however, say:

"Symbols used by the culture may range from the concrete (idols; totems; statuary) to the abstract (symbolized belief systems; group affiliations)."

It's calculated as Tech Level + Flux, with a minimum of 1, but I'm unable to see how a numeric value translates into...pretty much anything. Help, please?
