To make the index, you could use first more than one truth value for each
variable, and then use the degree of contradiction operator proposed in
multidimensional logic in order to build the index. Please visit

"Intelligence is when you can have at the same time two contradictory
thoughts. One example of it, is that we know that mankind is lost... and,
althrought, we do everything we can to try to save it."
