L.S.,

Forgive me for doubting you. Your recruitment of Agent Hopper has been a great boon to the Library and ourselves. And it's thanks in no small part to their unique talent, variable as it is.

Their continued findings in this unmasqued branch of The Tree have been very eye-opening. I've taken the liberty of compiling them in one of our extra-universal documentation indices, attached below.

…Magic is not just what our parks and films try to capture. It's a fundamental part of the world we live in.

Our partnership with them has lasted since Walt himself began to formulate the plans for Disneyland…

Excerpt from the New York Times, June 23rd edition, 2015

"Look, mistakes were made in the past, I'll admit that," Anderson Robotics owner Vincent Anderson replied Monday to reporters. "We were stuffed behind the Veil. Suffocating. But we just passed a mandated anomalous business audit with flying colours, and I'm determined to start a new chapter in our company's story today."

When asked on the possibility of recovery of company property from the Foundation, Anderson said, "I'm not sure. Really, we'll have to wait for the courts to decide on that. But I'm focused on looking ahead, not backwards."

Anderson's statement was delivered ahead of the eagerly anticipated Friday ICC decision concerning the rights of sapient paratech anomalies…

Excerpts from CNN article titled "Verizon stocks continue to drop, outcry towards Tumblr decision reaches federal level", publication date 7 August 2017:

So far, the month of August has not been kind to Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ). The company's decision to suspend two users on its microblogging subsidiary Tumblr last week has been harshly criticized as being transphobic and xenophobic, and the fury doesn't appear to be slowing down. Tumblr's user-base, the anomalous social hacktivist group Gamers Against Weed, and now Democratic members of the US Senate and House have all voiced their disapproval…

"…yet another harrowing example of corporate hypocrisy," commented senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT)…

…Official GAW accounts have circulated posts and image macros on the social media platforms Twitter and Void. Their contents lambast Verizon for the suspensions, alongside continued opposition to the net neutrality movement and past financial ties to Marshall, Carter, & Dark…

…the company's silence, even in the face of a continuous stock nosedive, has spoken volumes. Attempts to reach out to GAW for comment have been similarly unsuccessful.

Hey Bill. I have a question: I read over Roads and Hopes, and it looks promising. How do you think you'll be able to accomplish it with the SCP Foundation basically not letting anyone do anything?


[–] BillNyeOfficial [S] 4 points 7 hours ago

That's an excellent question. Site 57 recently reached out to me about Roads and Hopes, and said that it can be used for an emergency Plan B, in case they have an anomaly of theirs that proves to be more trouble than it's worth.

I see. Thank you.

Excerpts from a news segment on the opening of a new Moosphere, Incorporated production facility, 1 February 2025:

Consumer Reports recently announced that business is "going well" at the newly constructed Mindscape Megafactory here out of Bangalore, India.

Last week, I attended an exclusive press tour of the facility grounds. I spoke with factory manager Sanjay Lochan, who told me about the company's success in what they call the 'Mindscape' industry. "We fulfill about 1,500 orders daily, and have a current waiting list of 30,000 people," he says. "It's in high demand. We offer people a chance to become what they never would have been naturally. It's a surprising business model that would not have even worked ten years ago." This is, of course, in reference to the Veil protocol, which as you may know, was […]

Anonymous Moosphere representatives — who relayed messages through a company liaison, to avoid divulging trade secrets — told us they have five factories going up in India alone in the next eighteen months.

Their facilities use state-of-the-art paratechnology that's genuinely out of this world. "Aren't you concerned about consumer safety?" I ask Sanjay in private.

"Quite the contrary. People consent with their dollars, and they consent to cranial probes before we even admit them, and they light up in all the right areas," Sanjay tells me. "The truth is people enjoy it. They like it. And why wouldn't they?"

I can't argue with that logic, Sanjay! One process involves hooking oneself up with the pumping station, through which you can experience a prolonged astral projection for just under 18,000 rupees. Trials for a more permanent, long-distance experience — in a process known as "astral bridging" — are underway in a lab in Hong Kong. Moosphere Astrologists say they want to allow "[a] chance to explore nearby nebulae from the comfort of your own home!"

Overall, my talks with Sanjay were unexpectedly candid. Sanjay, my crew, and I laughed for what must have been hours. The ruckus garnered a few furtive glances from the otherwise focused line workers, who stood wide-eyed and taciturn at their stations the entire day. Talk about diligent work ethic! But, of course, before the tour was over, Sanjay brought me down to the R&D Wing to join my mind with The Lactescent Chorus

INFORMATIONAL HAZARD DESTROYED


Excerpts of the music-related magazine "Rolling Stone", 31 January 2027.

… Results of the new investigation and witness testimonies have proven that the car accident that led to the death of T-Rex singer Marc Bolan was orchestrated by the SCP Foundation…

Pete Doherty, lead singer of both The Libertines and Babyshambles, has been arrested at his home in Paris, France, and is currently under interrogation by the police for suspicions of Fifthist sympathies

"Even if we are not and will never be a Hand-related band, yes, the discovery of the Library had been a great influence for us, since the early years," Radiohead's lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood revealed in a recent interview for Q. "When we had begun recording for 'The King of Limbs', we wanted, especially me and Thom, to make a record that would be able to capture the very essence of what this place is and the mystic parts of it…"
