Item #: SCP-4000

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Communications involving high-risk individuals are to be monitored for signs of SCP-4000. Any individual demonstrating anomalous symptoms of SCP-4000 is to be immediately transported to the nearest facility able to detain individuals with at least level-2 infohazards. After administration of amnestic treatments, affected individuals are not to be released prior to 18 months after the final manifestation of SCP-4000 symptoms. The same procedure is to be applied to any Foundation personnel demonstrating anomalous symptoms of SCP-4000.

Description: SCP-4000 designates an spontaneous and anomalous psychological condition involving the development of limited precognitive abilities.

The earliest sign of SCP-4000 is knowledge of events that will occur within the following 12 months. This foreknowledge is limited to certain events, including new scientific and technological advancements, emerging political and social movements, and large-budget private and public projects. Individuals affected by SCP-4000 have shown no ability to predict certain events, including natural disasters, illness and other personal events.

Aside from genuine precognitive capabilities, SCP-4000 is also associated with false predictions which do not correspond to any actual event. Other symptoms associated with SCP-4000 include (but are not limited to) depression, anxiety, violent outbursts and dementia.

Item #: SCP-4000

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: To prevent the occurence of SCP-4000, Procedure-4000-UR is to be carried out within the final week of 20 Jan 2019 04:34 each year.

Procedure-4000-UR is an application of anomalous objects and phenomena, including the UR-Collective created specifically for this procedure, intended to stabilize the historical, cultural and technological state of Earth to that of the year 20 Jan 2019 04:34.

Procedure-4000-UR directly addresses the following priorities:

  1. Reversal of cultural, political and technological changes over the prior 12 months
  2. Maintenance, creation or alteration of temporal landmarks to remove evidence of the █783 years passed between 20 Jan 2019 04:34 and the current date.
  3. Global, selective alteration of human memory

Priorities 1 and 2 are managed by a set of temporary mobile task forces with the use of a number of pre-existing anomalous objects (see appendix 4000-UR-P). The third priority is managed with the use of the UR-Collective: a network of human biological tissue used to generate a reactive psionic field in order to maintain the illusion of global progress and remove any memories associated with Procedure-4000-UR. Any individuals who demonstrate resistance to the altered memories are to be immediately detained and incorporated into the UR-Collective.

Description: SCP-4000 designates a phenomena affecting intelligent species1 on a global or interglobal scale. SCP-4000 occurs between ███ and ████ years after the species' first intentional transmission of radio waves to an extra-atmospheric target, and has only been delayed or avoided in cases of catostrophic and sustained societal regression.

At the onset of SCP-4000, all individual members of the species in question, as well as all artificial objects, organisms, and other material constructs created by the species simultaneously and spontaneously dematerializes.
