    Expression question

    Three of us hereŚmyself, Graham Warwick and Guy NorrisŚconcur that the photos show something real. Guy and I have known Steve Douglass for a long time, and know that the reason that he sees (and monitors by radio) unusual things is that he spends time looking for them. Here is Steve's account of one of his better radio intercepts. This is more than a random image.
    The photos tell us more about what the mysterious stranger isn't than what it is.



    Above is an excerpt from a reading.
    Question 1. 'mysterious stranger isn't than what it is' <---what does this mean?
    Question 2. radio intercept means what? I tried to look it up, but nothing showed a clear definition of this.

    Re: Expression question

    1. It doesn't tell us much about what it is. It does tell us about what it is not.

    2. An "intercept" is something that was intercepted. In this case, it mean he listened to radio transmissions that were not meant for him. They were messages between two other parties.
