Terminology Index

Terminology Index

New employees of the Authority frequently feel overwhelmed by the range of unusual terminology, concepts and vocabulary they find themselves confronted with. The description and applications of the same anomaly-related concepts can also vary widely between divisions, leading to further confusion and miscommunication. The following is a comprehensive list of files and documents that exist to explain concepts referenced in a wide variety of Database entries.

Anomalous Assets


Anomalous tools and substances used by the Authority

Amnestics

Amnestics are memory-affecting agents used by the Authority to control and suppress information. The most common is Class A which is used for basic memory erasing of individual people. Classes G, P, R and T amnestics are specialty classes, used for specific purposes.

Viderics

Viderics are perception affecting drugs used to block Anopticin, a neurotransmitter which filters inconsistencies in our perception. The usage of Viderics allows for Pseudo Anomalies and other previously hidden presences to be perceived.

ACS Documentation


Documents related to the Anderson Coherency Scale

A Word on the Anderson Coherency Scale

Since the widespread implementation of ACS classifications within technical documents, several researchers have come to management confused about the new terminology. This page will briefly explain the Coherency Scale for researchers more used to the older forms of reality classification.

The Anderson-Eckhardt Coherency Test

The AECT is currently the most accurate known way to achieve a sufficiently consistent ACS reading for a given space. The test is composed of 3059 individual tests, each having an obtainable reading of either "low coherency", "medium coherency" or "high coherency".

Informational Timelines


Documents that detail historic events

A Timeline of the Anomalous

This draft was found in the home of the Historian McArthur ████, who was previously contracted by the Authority for his expertise. Unbeknownst to us, he used his security clearance in the archives, to trace our work and our origins to ancient times.

An Incomplete History of the Authority
