This may have been asked before, but I missed it. The T5 Cultural Extension are new to me. I am having trouble getting my head around it.

Homogenity is pretty self explainitory, and acceptance. But strangeness, and symbols I am not sure how to deal with. Using Lemish as an example, second survey says [988F]

"High strangeness is evidenced by unusual or outwardly incomprehensible actions, statements or response in the course of daliy activity. Low Strangeness reflects activities closer to interstellar norms." Since Strangeness is 5+Flux, it makes Lemishians (Lemishites? Lemishers?) 80% strange. But how weird is that?

Whatever makes the folks from Lemish so strange, it did not stop the Imperium from putting up a naval base or subsector capital, despite the tainted atmosphere. Tech level 12 Amish?

Symbols, I am afraid, I am completely lost. Do we have strange glyphs decorating all the buildings?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
