Item #: SCP-C418

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation webcrawler "ZeroCool" monitors popular present and future webservices and identifies the presence of individuals affected by SCP-C418. Should this or any other method detect an instance of someone affected by SCP-C418, they are to be recovered, interrogated, amnesticized, and released, to be monitored for signs of relapse in the future. There is currently no plan to mitigate the continued spread of SCP-C418, as it provides valuable data to the Foundation.

Description: SCP-C418 is a nostopsychic effect that develops in children and young adults. Subjects affected by SCP-C418 typically report having been reduced to a previous point in their life, and that they have lived far beyond the time they were initially affected by SCP-C418. However, memories, behavioral patterns, identity, and other psychological phenomenon consistent with the ages and time periods claimed are not facsimiles or inventions. Nearly all memories of future points in time have been verified via secondary sources1, and extensive psychological examinations conducted by Foundation scientists yield no evidence of falsified behavior, only typical amounts of falsified memories.

Cases of SCP-C418 have no explicit patterns or trends, but tend to occur most during periods of cultural rest and recuperation. There is no known explicit cause for or explanation of the mechanism on which SCP-C418 operates. It is, however, believed to be tied to future emotional responses to vividly memorable events, media, or other experiences. Most subjects report that the last action performed before being affected by SCP-C418 directly correlates to the last action they remember performing in the future.

Addendum: The following is a collection of pertinent instances of SCP-C418.
