Item #: SCP-PPPP

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: During research, SCP-PPPP is to be kept in solitary confinement within a human containment unit comprising both living quarters and in-situ research/waste management facilities. The latter must be resilient to Ultra High Thermal Treatment and have an STC1 rating of at least 60 to prevent awareness/distress caused by post-test resource neutralisation.

SCP-PPPP is considered category NH/FC2 (with one involuntary contraindication, see Incident 171-A8) for the purposes of research interaction and (in)voluntary breach risk analysis.

Since Incident 171-A8 (see below), Unique Protocol PPPP-Ness applies:

  • No communication or interaction is permitted with SCP-PPPP unless approved at Site Director level.
  • Any such interaction must be undertaken by an expendable resource or automated electronic means; said interaction is to be monitored by automated electronic means only, and may take place only within the dedicated research/waste management area.
  • No interaction or first/second party monitoring is to be conducted by any non-expendable resource and any third party monitoring must be non-concurrent.
  • Where expendable resources are utilised, these are to be neutralised immediately and permanently after interaction in situ within the designated Waste Management area through 1) Primary application of appropriate airborne agents and/or 2) Secondary High Temperature Waste Treatment (where primary method is deemed unsuitable or ineffective).

In the event on a containment breach, immediate Ultra High Thermal Treatment is to be applied to zones 1a to 3f inclusively for a period of no less than fifteen minutes. Protocol Pearly Gate applies to all currently/previously rostered/SCP-aware personnel up to but not including Site Director level. Under these circumstances all current and previous site resource is deemed lost until confirmed otherwise via standard Divergency Scourge procedures.

Given SCP-PPPP's latent threat and the possibility of intra-dimensional corruption (see Interview 171-A8 below), protocol Deep Sleep-PPPP applies whenever consciousness is not required for research purposes. Under this protocol SCP-PPPP is to be kept under heavy sedation and brain activity is to be monitored via automated EEG systems.

Description: SCP-PPPP is a human male, date of birth 1962-04-28, formerly of [REDACTED], US. SCP-PPPP has numerous anomalous abilities, some of which have only been discovered post-containment. Emergent anomalous phenomena are discovered on an ongoing basis. These abilities include but are not limited to clairvoyance, transmutation of physical matter, the ability to retrospectively influence reality, and certain highly infectious cases of fast-onset cognitohazard creation/distribution. Persons affected by these cognitohazards are themselves a vector for further anomalous activity, may display immediate, ongoing activation of otherwise unrelated anomalous phenomena, and are likewise able to contaminate other individuals independently of spatial/chronological proximity.

SCP-PPPP became known to the Foundation after winning the so-called ”One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge” offered by the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) in 2014. Covert monitoring of JREF communications recovered at a later date suggest that the usual eligibility criteria and test conditions3 were waived in favor of a series of informal demonstrations of its paranormal abilities. SCP-PPPP was subsequently contacted by Foundation agents posing as researchers with the fictional Gemini Paranorma group in September 2015, and voluntarily entered Foundation custody on 2015-12-05. The JREF challenge was subsequently discontinued and (although SCP-PPPP’s success was never acknowledged outside of that organisation) a disinformation campaign was carried out to secure SCP-PPPP’s identity. James Randi was replaced as the head of the JREF in September 2015 and replaced with an appropriate Foundation resource.

SCP-PPPP continues to assist in research wherever possible and is allowed Level 6 Prior Life Engagement priviledges when not comatose.

Following interview 171-B5, Dr Jerry Granville and Dr Alan Crombe (hereafter designated SCP-PPPP-1 and SCP-PPPP-2 respectively) noted the following:

SCP-PPPP-1 and -2 are able to warp self-perception of time. In particular, during periods of monotony, the passage of time is perceived by SCP-PPPP individuals to progress at a noticeably slower rate than baseline chronology. The corollary applies to periods of personal excitement. SCP-PPPP-1 noted: "I was sitting in my unit bored out of my skull for what seemed like ages. I thought it was at least eleven, maybe half eleven. Looked at the clock, it was only ten. How do you account for that? I can make time slow down and I’m not even aware I’m doing it." On-site research staff were able to estimate the correct time in 94% of cases4.

Despite this apparent divergence, time keeping appliances worn by SCP-PPPP-1 and those elsewhere still displayed the same chronological time. This (non)divergence is currently not understood by contemporary science. Full testing is planned once safety protocols are in place.

SCP-PPPP-1 and -2 are able to predict future events with a success ratio congruous to the probability of said events. SCP-PPPP-2 noted, "I was asked whether it was going to rain the next day. I said yes it would. And you know what, it did. It rained. Not here, I grant you. Somewhere fifty miles away. They got a drenching. So am I just predicting the future, or am I causing it?" Full testing is planned once safety protocols are in place.

In addition to the above and other noted anomalies, both SCP-PPPP-1 and SCP-PPPP-2 share SCP-PPPP's cognitohazardous ability to control other's thought processes. It has been confirmed (via SCP-PPPP designations 3 through to 32) that subjects infected with the cognitohazard also display ongoing and progressive anomalous behavior as per SCP-PPPP, and are in turn able to infect others5.

All instances (current and future) are to be contained as per current protocols. Any low-value instances may be subject to standard Thermal Waste Management treatment at Site Director discretion.
