Description: SCP-XXXX collectively refers to a series of neurological phenomena affecting human brain function. These phenomena (referred to as SCP-XXXX “variants”) have been recorded affecting various human individuals (hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-1), regardless of physical or mental differences. There are multiple variants of SCP-XXXX at any given time, each with different symptoms and characteristics. Common symptoms universally exhibited by SCP-XXXX-1 are:

  • Transmission of SCP-XXXX through speech-based cognitohazards.
  • Broadcasting of low-frequency psionic communications.

The hazards used in SCP-XXXX transmission are marked by otherwise normal spoken sentences with minor changes in tone and pronunciation. Within one to five minutes after exposure, the listener begins showing symptoms of the SCP-XXXX variant exhibited by the transmitting SCP-XXXX-1. Both the SCP-XXXX-1 instance and the receiver are completely unaware of this process, reporting no change before or afterwards. The discreteness of both the transmission process and the symptoms themselves makes both detection of SCP-XXXX and control of its spread difficult.

Additionally, SCP-XXXX-1 instances are capable of transmitting and receiving low-frequency psionic signals. SCP-XXXX-1 instances receiving a signal of this type will always retransmit the signal, but the behavior of the receiving instance beyond that is difficult to predict. Experiments in which a SCP-XXXX-1 instance receives the same transmission multiple times shows that the instance always reacts in the same manner, implying that these transmissions contain instructions. There is currently no way to interpret these transmissions.

SCP-XXXX variants are created through of a Telepathic Network Interface Controller (TNIC) and the corresponding software. This device is capable of transmitting data over low-level psionic signals and is designed for interfacing with a computer via USB cable. The software includes hardware drivers for SCP-XXXX-2 as well as a program for creating audio-based memetic hazards through instructions similar to the C family of programming languages. Through usage of this software, the user can create and spread SCP-XXXX variants, as well as send instructions to the resulting SCP-XXXX-1 instances, although it is not limited to this purpose.
