— The Chicken

Front cover of SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in locker 2B of Site-114's containment wing. Proposals for experimentation should be forwarded to a head researcher of Site-114. Under no circumstances are any personnel to read SCP-XXXX beyond its front cover.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a paperback essay entitled 'Lévi-Strauss est un Dunce: une Refutation de la Critique Structuraliste Absurd', written by an anonymous author under the pseudonym Igor. Any individual who reads past SCP-XXXX's front cover will undergo significant cognitive alterations over the course of 30 minutes of reading.

Individuals exposed to SCP-XXXX experience a severing of their corpus callosum through unknown means. This effect induces a 'split-brain syndrome' upon the subject, eliminating communication between both hemispheres of the brain. Further, the subject will progressively develop two distinct and opposing personalities harbouring within their conscious. As only one personality may remain in outward control of the subject at a time, individuals will experience erratic changes in their persona. This condition is entirely anomalous and is inconsistent with normal manifestations of split-brain syndrome. Following exposure, SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects are permanent and will remain until the subject expires.

It is unknown if SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties are intentional or not (See Addendum XXXX-2). Regardless, both of an individuals' identities have expressed significant impertinence towards their counterpart. Frequent attempts have been made by both identities of a subject to undermine the other, often at the expense of the human host. Whether these personalities are artificially created within the subject or are a division of their original identity is unknown.

The origins of SCP-XXXX are unknown, as the essay contains no publisher or date of publication. Attempts by the Foundation to locate its author have failed.

Addendum XXXX-1: The following interview was conducted on the 3/5/2040 by Dr. Belfast with D-44052, a subject exposed to SCP-XXXX's memetic properties:
