NOTICE FROM THE FOUNDATION RECORDS AND INFORMATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

The audio data transcribed within this file constitutes a Class-A Memetic Cognitohazard. Review of this file is limited to those individuals with high resistance to memetic anomalies or having undergone extensive memetic-inoculation.

You have been warned.

Distribution of recorded SCP-5889 instances.

Special Containment Procedures:

Individuals affected by instances of SCP-5889 are to be administered Class-A amnestics. Due to this treatment being only partially effective, individuals are to be digitally monitored by I/O METATRON for signs of psychological instability and/or threats to the Veil.

Institutionalization in a Foundation-operated psychological treatment facility is to be initiated only if the affected individual shows signs of potential Veil-breaching communications.

Previous Special Containment Procedures involved the mandatory institutionalization of all affected individuals, however after observation revealed no lingering effect in multiple subjects, and given the advancements in AI technology in recent years, remote monitoring has been deemed a more cost effective and ethical solution.

Description:

SCP-5889 is a memetic cognitohazard that takes the form of broadcasts originating from a radio station self-designated as VKTM-66.3.1 Individuals who hear instances of SCP-5889 are immediately affected in two ways by the memetic nature of the anomaly:

  • Affected individuals report irrational terror and distress;
  • After an instance ceases, affected individuals are unable to remember the content of the broadcast, but retain memories of the emotional duress suffered, even after multiple courses of amnestic treatment.

As of this writing, instances of SCP-5889 have only occurred within the continental United States. Occurrence of instances is unpredictable and lacks observable patterns.

Frequently, the instance only occurs in the presence of solitary individuals.2 It is currently theorized that the instances are targeted, but the method by which individual victims are chosen is unclear.

After being exposed to an instance of SCP-5889, an individual will often respond with “fight-or-flight” responses. Given the amnestic properties of SCP-5889, affected individuals are unable to locate the offending stimulus, increasing their panic and the irrationality of their actions.

This can be particularly dangerous and disruptive if the affected individual is driving when exposure to the instance occurs. Incidents of violence are relatively rare, but individuals affected are often found to take hazardous actions in an attempt to escape the cause of their terror.

Other than the self-identified designation as VKTM-66.3, the source of the anomalous broadcast has not been discovered. No origination of radio waves has been identified. The method by which the signal is transmitted is unknown.
