Item #: SCP-5920

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: All SCP-5920 units are to be contained within Suite 908A of Site-01 and managed through Project AURUM SILKWORM.

SCP-5920 test subjects shall be chosen from within MTF Alpha-1 ("Red Right Hand") according to depth of project-relevant experiences, particularly personnel management and information extraction. Participation in AURUM SILKWORM is to be considered a requirement of MTF Alpha-1 membership.

Members of MTF Alpha-1 who have been exposed to memories with intensity quotients over 20,000 may not be assigned to Overseer Council security details. Such individuals are not to be permitted transfer to other positions within the Foundation or retirement from their posts.

Description: SCP-5920 is a specific combination of technologies that identify, extract, and duplicate an individual's memories. Additionally, SCP-5920 converts extracted memories into audiovisual media that can be experienced by other parties through normal exposure. Although replicable within the Foundation, progenitor paratech guarantees anomalous classification until public technology makes similar advancements.

SCP-5920 units consist of three components:

  • A central terminal controls the process and stores extracted memories for processing.
  • An EEG headset analyzes cerebral activity and hosts micro-needles for insertion through thinner skull sections.
  • A chair equipped with full-body restraints ensures subject safety during high-intensity exposure.

Facilities for large-scale biological matter disposal are frequently used post hoc, but are not considered integral.

Serial use of SCP-5920 amplifies the qualities of extracted memories via filtration through ego constructs. Second-hand experiences are often more potent due to additional layers of psychological baggage, as are third-hand experiences, fourth-hand experiences, etc. As a result, individuals' experiences, preferences, and outlooks influence the qualities of filtered memories, which vary significantly in duration, emotional slant, and intensity. Consuming the audiovisual output of high-concentration memories induces a variety of effects within the human body:

Intensity Quotient Range Bodily Effects
0 - 300 None observed. Subjects typically report calming experiences.
300 - 4,000 Fluctuations in heart rate, blood pressure, and brain activity depending on each memory's emotional slant. Broad worldviews may be shifted by repeated exposure.
4,000 - 20,000 Significant fluctuations in heart rate, blood pressure, and brain activity depending on memory slant. Elevated risk of cardiac arrest, internal hemorrhaging, and general organ failure.
20,000+ All test subjects not previously exposed to moderate-intensity memories have immediately expired.
