NOTICE FROM THE MEMETICS AND INFOHAZARDS DIVISION

The following document contains an activated Class V cognitohazard. Cognitohazardous elements have been highlighted in blue.

If you find a god somehow, pray.

SCP-3488-ℵ-1 upon recovery. Cognitohazards have been removed via SCRAMBLE filter. Cognitohazards removed.

Item #: SCP-3488-ℵ

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Knowledge of SCP-3488-ℵ and its related anomalies is restricted to personnel with a Level 5/3488 security clearance, which includes members of the O5 Council, assigned HMCL supervisors, designated Ethics Committee Liaison, and the Director of RAISA. It is currently under review by the Department of Memes.

SCP-3488-ℵ-1 is kept in a secure titanium-reinforced containment locker within Outpost-51. Unauthorized personnel attempting to access the containment locker are to be detained indefinitely.

Description: SCP-3488-ℵ is an extremely potent Class-i1 dank antimeme complex.

SCP-3488-ℵ separated from a larger conceptual stratum at an unknown time and was discovered by the Foundation on April 20th, 2018. SCP-3488-ℵ currently exists in a select number of minute fragments that are almost completely inaccessible by the gestalt Noosphere. SCP-3488-ℵ possesses dormant normalcy and reality restructuring capabilities aligning with an iK-class end-of-the-world scenario2. It is the most deadliest SCP ever known in existence. More powerful than all the SCPs combined.

The largest and most prevalent fragment of SCP-3488-ℵ appeared within a ship-in-a-bottle (designated SCP-3488-ℵ-1) owned by PoI-3488 ([DATA LOST]). PoI-3320 purchased the item in March 2018 during a trip to Saint Petersburg, Russia. PoI-3488 owned SCP-3488-ℵ-1 for approximately 1 month until they were reported missing. Foundation operatives discovered their corpse in a state of advanced conceptual decomposition on the side of Interstate 10 (I-10 E) in central Florida. It was the most brutal corpse ever seen. They didn't get the joke. Additional known records of PoI-3488 have undergone various stages of conceptual decomposition, rendering their contents incomprehensible.

Despite existing as an abstraction3, SCP-3488-ℵ physically embodies a deadly ghost Class III spectral form. It ripped PoI-3488 open, and other terrible things. SCP-3488-ℵ maintains the ability to transmit itself between its disconnected fragments4; destroying an affected fragment simply allows SCP-3488-ℵ to transmit into further objects. SCP-3488-ℵ-1 and the fragment it encapsulates are the only known fragments which cannot be destroyed (see Addendum-1). It is theorized that the destruction of 3488-ℵ-1 would lead to the neutralization of 3488-ℵ.

Each SCP-3488-ℵ fragment corresponds to a different method of interaction with our reality. In one instance, SCP-3488-ℵ communicates by means of a nondescript compact audio cassette tape (designated SCP-3488-ℵ-2). SCP-3488-ℵ-2 randomly manifests within the city limits of Jacksonville, Florida for 5 minutes every 24 hours. Upon manifestation, SCP-3488-ℵ communicates using verbal transmissions that evoke humour, which anomalously emit at a rate of one joke per day. SCP-3488-ℵ-2 causes severe cognitohazardous effects to anyone within audible range that considers the joke to be humorous. Since its discovery in 2018, approximately 600 people are believed to have been affected by the cognitohazard.

Affected individuals display accelerated involuntary laughter that continues until subjects suffer from life-threatening cardiac arrest or asphyxiation. In 2019, the tape was summarily destroyed by Foundation agents and has been considered neutralized. Its voice still is a mystery today.

Addendum 1: To date, the perception of SCP-3488-ℵ-1 has directly led to the expiry of approximately 270 personnel and is responsible for the loss of a large number of Foundation assets, which includes the Ideatic Opposites Division (you don't remember it). Between 2018 and 2024, approximately 100 wide-scale containment initiatives have been attempted; all attempts have yielded negative results.

Examples of failed containment initiatives, which have been collapsed for brevity, are as follows:

Addendum 2: On January 22nd, 2024, during transport to another facility, SCP-3488-ℵ-1 was considered contained after being placed in a titanium containment locker. It's an inside joke, you wouldn't get it! Believe me. Containment was deemed viable after approximately 1 month elapsed without the manifestation of anomalous properties from any SCP-3488-ℵ fragments. It is hypothesized that the properties of titanium prevent SCP-3488-ℵ-1 from emitting any anomalous effects. Heh heh, you sure about that, kiddo?

As no fragments of SCP-3488-ℵ have manifested anomalous properties since January 22nd, 2024, SCP-3488-ℵ is considered neutralized.

Addendum 3: SCP-3488 cannot be thoroughly understood as it occupies the meta-conceptual framework of a "joke". Any attempts to understand it are instead met with the realization that you cannot truly understand why a joke is funny, only that it is. Foundation personnel are urged to ignore any attempts to understand it, for there exist things which are simply nonsensical. You either "get" the joke, or you do not; there is no grey area.

Found a file (attached) this morning while scanning the intranet systems during standard maintenance. Don't think anyone else in the IT Department's ever seen it, but apparently, it was given an update? I have no idea where this thing came from, and it's bugging the crap out of me. Mind getting CROM.aic to run this document through the SCiPNET main listing? I need to know the validity of this entry.

Thanks
Marcin

Hey Marcin,

CROM ran a search. No red flags here, it's 100% legit. But the file isn't on any of the Main Listing entries. I suppose it's possible CROM lacks the proper clearance to run a search of the entire listing, seeing as it's only cleared for Level 4 security. I could run a request by Director Metcalfe to see if she can access some files in Site-01 for us, but since this isn't exactly urgent, there's no chance we'd get very far.

Are you sure this isn't an unverified cold posting still under review?

Cheers,
Alex

A cold posting? I mean, it's possible, but whoever wrote this is competent. For instance, I've never heard of an antimeme before; have you? Seems like it would be top secret. Can't find any information on who submitted this entry. Doesn't seem like anyone reviewed it either: the file history before the "update" is blank. Either this appeared out of thin air or some junior researcher failed to follow the correct protocol. A newbie couldn't possibly be assigned to an anomaly of this magnitude, so there must be something else going on here. Some shitty prank?

Going to investigate further. But first, holy hell do I need a coffee.

No red flags, eh?

Well, I had a hunch, checked the main listing entry for 3488. CROM wasn't wrong, it is blank. At least, right now it is. Since 2018 there have been approximately 37 different proposals for scip classification on this file alone. That's not an administrative error, that's someone or a group of someones going back and attempting to enter different entries. There are no reviews in the history of any of these files, and the proposals are for things that really should be in the anomalous items file. None of these proposals last more than a few days, and most are typically pulled before the 10-day mark. There's no way someone hasn't caught on to this before me, but IT hasn't done anything. I'm thinking I should send a request for investigation to the HCML designate assigned to Site-82, what do you think?

Marcin


P.S.: Just refreshed the main listing, another file was just uploaded. Haven't looked at it yet, but I'll send you the link to the directory. Let me know if you find anything strange.

Item #: SCP-____-J

Object Class: _______

Special Containment Procedures: In a box in my office.

Description: It's a rock that makes you procrastinate.

Addendum: Probably memetic or something.

Incident Log: Upon the decryption of SCP-____-J, Site-82's intranet systems experienced a period of downtime lasting 10 minutes. When the systems came back online, the systems began to function at approximately 9% the expected operating capacity.

Upon the reactivation of Site-82's intranet systems, Foundation personnel stationed at Site-82 experienced a site-wide memetically induced "laziness". This led to the containment breach of two Euclid-level assets; the temporary deactivation of CROM.aic; the loss of communication with MTF-Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot-1 ("Mondays On The Alex Jones Show"), which was off-site at the time recovering SCP-4477; and a lapse in the study of 8 anomalous objects on-site. This occurred for approximately 4 hours and 37 minutes until Site Command noted that it was receiving an inconsistent signal from Site-82, at which point an official investigation was ordered.

Site Command determined the source of the memetic agent to be originating from SCP-____-J, which had been spread throughout the site's intranet systems. Site Command summarily destroyed all traces of SCP-____-J from Site-82's systems and disseminated a Class-II counter-memetic agent to all personnel in Site-82. Counter-meme activation was deemed successful, and the site began to operate at normal levels.


Incident Log: On 2024/03/31, shortly after the dissemination and containment of SCP-____-J, numerous SCP object documents designated as "Joke" began to appear in a new section on the Foundation SCiPNET Database. Upon detection by Foundation intranet AI, these documents were seized by RAISA and filtered for potential anomalous hazards. Approximately 2 hours after entering an official review, the documentation began to manifest as physical incarnations of the objects described, albeit in a manner that deviates from its recorded documentation.

An abridged account of the security leak is outlined as follows.

Item Designation: SCP-049-J
Documentation: A humanoid entity wearing a long black robe and a 17th-century plague doctor's mask. The entity wields a long wooden stick and carries a medical bag containing unknown medical supplies, which it uses to exacerbate commonly curable medical conditions.
Manifestation Report: A humanoid entity similar to the one described appeared within Site-82 and began to assault nearby personnel with a wooden pole. The entity emitted constant vocalizations during this, with recorded phrases such as "Hi daddy, I'm Cure," "Mmm, zombie brains," "Spectral Strategy: Celestial Chronicle: Shoe Smite deployed," and "I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Cure-I-am." The entity prioritized its attention toward persons with life-threatening ailments over with minor ailments, such as the common cold or small lacerations.

Item Designation: SCP-729-J
Documentation: A plush toy with mind-affecting properties that influences subjects within a general vicinity of its effects. These properties manifest within subjects as an irrational fear of the toy.
Manifestation Report: A memetic object resembling a chocolate snack, known colloquially as a "Peep", manifested with every serving at Site-82's cafeteria. Personnel exposed to the object referred to it as their superior, which resulted in the mass worship of the chocolate treat. Affected personnel would then begin to develop hallucinations of the inanimate entity giving them orders. Personnel would carry out the orders by performing various acts, such as attacking nearby personnel, raiding the site canteen to consume all confectionaries, and conspiring to trigger the on-site nuclear warhead "as a meme".

Item Designation: SCP-6327-J
Documentation: A cognitohazard which ensures information disseminated about it is rendered in a highly elucidated manner.
Manifestation Report: An entity resembling a well-known 1978/07/27 Garfield comic strip (viewable here) appeared on 4% of low clearance terminals within Site-82. Personnel exposed to these terminals began to undergo Conceptual Decay, whereby the understanding of their core conceptual form diminished, leading to a sharp decrease in physical and existential complexity. Affected personnel were perceived as being minimal and frequently emitted simplified or unintelligible speech patterns. The phrases "where tube" and "feline" were the most consistently uttered.

Item Designation: SCP-SPOOKY-J
Documentation: A skeletal entity that manifests during commercial holidays. The entity attempts to cease the proper function of the selected holiday and directs expletive vocalizations at celebrators of the holiday.
Manifestation Report: A custodial closet within Sublevel-17 at Site-82 became filled with animate human skeletons. Despite the absence of nervous and muscular systems, the skeletons were capable of locomotion and independent movement. The only recorded communication attempt with these skeletons was the line "Hey, bud, could ya lend me a hand? Mine fell off."

Item Designation: SCP-100000-J
Documentation: A highly infectious bacterium with exaggerated containment procedures. The bacterium consumes the basic essence of an organism, including any products of the organism's mind, such as thoughts and dreams.
Manifestation Report: A concept, described only as "[DATA EXPUNGED]", manifested within Site-82. It is currently unknown where exactly the concept emerged from, but current theories point to it occupying airspace over Site-82 after entering Earth's orbit.

Item Designation: SCP-999-J
Documentation: An overweight humanoid entity that spontaneously appears on any bed where indecent acts are occurring. The entity is able to retrieve a multitude of items from within its clothing.
Manifestation Report: Randomly selected personnel gained the sudden interest in popular social media website "Reddit." Affected personnel inexplicably experienced an increase in cholesterol levels associated with obesity and began to argue politics in the Office Wing of Site-82 for 10 consecutive hours.

Item Designation: SCP-231-J
Documentation: A hostile transformative entity that manifests from unpaid loans.
Manifestation Report: Foundation funding for Site-82 was fully depleted after a series of spontaneous events. It is theorized that these events aligned with Foundation personnel taking part in "shopaholic" activities until all funding was gone.

Item Designation: SCP-789-J
Documentation: A spectral entity that manifests in toilets.
Manifestation Report: The following message appeared written on all Site-82 toilets in a brown-coloured print:

"the butt gost has breaced containmetn. pre pear you're buts!!!!" [sic]
-Researcher James

Item Designation: SCP-028-J
Documentation: Unknown. The password needed to access SCP-028-J has not been discovered.
Manifestation Report: All personnel were given Level 5 clearance to all files within the Site-82 database. Site-82's custodian Henrik Sturmatem (designated J1-13) received Level 6 clearance. However, even with Level 5 and Level 6 clearance, SCP-028-J remained inaccessible as it required a password.

Item Designation: SCP-420-J
Documentation: A rolled marijuana cigarette that produces highly euphoric effects when used.
Manifestation Report: A thick cloud of hemp smoke began to pass through Site-82. Personnel affected by the cloud almost immediately grew a distaste for marijuana and other related drugs and began to create picket signs protesting against US marijuana legalization.

Munchies are, like, so inconvenient to me and my work, man. I don't even care anymore, I wanna be able to work with peace of mind. We need to be freed from the shackles of adversity, dude. You feel me?
- Junior Researcher Obeson

Item Designation: SCP-\̅\̅\̅\̅-J
Documentation: The floor is hungry for testing.
Manifestation Report: Most of the blast detected the first floor appearing into the next room. Who have not been anomalies? Personnel entering the local cafeteria coroner. No further investigation into the burning personnel is allowed. However, when such incidents are released, the abdomen contains forty genders. As well, your Time Frame Fluids have been seen contaminating the epidermis.

Euthanized examination reveals that he did your mother (the subject was a table). The table (your mother) remained conscious for up to 6 days before muscle relaxants were found. A collection of appropriately rapid muscular bodies is to remain stripped down below the ears. It is noted that their "stuff" is thick. Full cleanup is currently unknown.

The recent security breach is believed to be a GoI-5869 ("Gamers Against Weed")-related incursion. A full investigation has been ordered.

Item #: SCP-3488

Object Class: Keter

Threat Level: Black ●

Special Containment Procedures: Any knowledge of SCP-3488 apart from this document is to be expunged. A memetic amnestic agent has been deployed to prevent any additional knowledge of SCP-3488 from being disseminated.

Full containment procedures currently pending; awaiting further approval.

Description: The following information is considered outdated, and has been collapsed for simplicity. Any additional data is kept under a Level 5 security clearance lock.

LEVEL 5 SECURITY CLEARANCE REQUIRED

Does the black flag fly true?
> Vazojn de kolero, taŭgajn por pereo_

Inoculation complete. You may proceed.

Addendum 3488-1:

I'd like to address a few of the more pressing issues encountered as of late.

Contrary to a popular belief among some of our more junior members (acquired from this organization's rather unorthodox orientation briefings, I gather), containment breaches are, in fact, a rare occurrence. Lower-clearance Level I and II articles are not telling accounts of the Foundation's current reputation, and Site-82, in particular, is esteemed for its advanced containment research and methodology. Despite this, we have experienced containment breaches on a magnitude greater than this site has in its entire history, in the span of a mere 36 hours.

The truth is that SCP-3488-ℵ does exist, and is an Outside-Context Problem for Site-82, its administration, and the greater Foundation. In fact, SCP-3488-ℵ does remain uncontained in small fragments despite our best efforts to contain it and reduce any dissemination of its very context.

In addition to this, it has come to my attention that GoI-5869 ("Gamers Against Weed") has taken advantage of a brief lapse in security. Site-82 exists concurrently within approximately 13 different universal instances, is connected to the prototype Multi-Universal Foundation SCiPNET Database, and is larger in scale than any of its sentinel facilities to facilitate this broader range of operations. An array of information on this level is quite difficult to keep secure, as our techies have made more than clear. We believe SCP-3488-ℵ is solely responsible for this slight technological "hiccup", which allowed GoI-5869 to access our database and produce multiple false documents in jest, which were then disseminated on a macro level.

I am aware that this is not the first time they have attempted access to classified Foundation systems and it certainly may not be their last. This is not an admission of incompetence, but an understanding that we are facing a very active threat; one which continues to elude us.

Now, to be entirely transparent, the Foundation does keep an official selection of vetted joke articles such as SCP-2615-J in its records. This is by design. The nature of GoI-5869's intrusion is a coincidence, and we do not expect this distraction to prevent us from completing our duties. Any incursions by GoI-5869 in regards to this phenomenon (as confirmed by extra-temporal scanning) are localized in the time frame we have just experienced. That is to say, the extent of the damage has been done. With that said, I apologize for any inconveniences Site-82 has experienced at this time, and guarantee that full operations will resume in the coming days.

- Director Imogen Metcalfe, Site-82
