Current Draft SCP-XXXX: What is the meaning of it all?

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: At this time, effective containment of SCP-XXXX has proved to be impossible, however much of the effects of SCP-XXXX can be mitigated by The Foundation. The effects of SCP-XXXX, are to be be combated, via the following methods:

  • Publishing of fake research, attesting to the natural causes of SCP-XXXX
  • Creation of popular media on the subject of SCP-XXXX
  • Teaching of SCP-XXXX in schools
  • Pushing religious ideals onto the public

These methods attempt to employ a plasibo effect that would counter SCP-XXXX's mind-altering properties.

In the event that SCP-XXXX comes to affect over 20% of the population, The Foundation will begin the use of widespread amnestics and restructuring of society around religion.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an infectious, mind-altering ideology known to the public as "nihilism". This ideology states that all life is meaningless and of no consequence. It commonly surfaces as a result of interactions with an individual under the effects of SCP-XXXX, however it may also manifest seemingly at random, with afflicted subjects claiming they experienced an "epiphany".

SCP-XXXX has a higher likelihood of manifesting in non-religious persons and lonely people. In most observed cases, symptoms do not emerge immediately, taking an arbitrary amount of time before manifesting within those afflicted.

Individuals affected by SCP-XXXX exhibit a subset of the following symptoms:

  • Depression
  • Suicidal Tendencies
  • Aggression
  • Short-Temper
  • Hyper-Sensitivity
  • Short Attention-Span

SCP-XXXX's effects surface and disappear at seemingly random intervals. Investigation into correlation between SCP-XXXX's effects and any external stimuli are ongoing.
