Description: SCP-XXXX is a small,leather bound book, with roughly 200 pages, with the cover reading "An Existential Crisis" by A.█████.As is common with most books of this make, there is no blurb. Upon reading SCP-XXXX,its anomalous properties will take effect, the subject will fall into a trance like state not unlike the usage of certain drugs.During this state, the subject will continue reading regardless of outside stimuli,including but not limited to pain,pressure and heat.The only way to remove someone from this state is either removing visual contact with the contents of SCP-XXXX or termination. Upon reading the final page of SCP-XXXX, subject will become transfixed with the concept that their existence and all interactions between the subject and other people are merely figments of their imagination.No proof or reasoning will dissuade them from this idea. Roughly one (1) hour after reading SCP-XXXX,Subject will "cease" for various periods of time. During this period, subject will not exist in our reality, and will leave behind clothes, micro organisms,tracing devices and ██████████.
After this period of non existence, subject will return to the same position, apparently not aware of their experience. After roughly 2 days of random intervals of "ceasing", the subject will cease to exist entirely. All attempts to halt this have proven ineffective.
