Special Containment Procedures: Attempts to discern the origin of SCP-XXXX are currently underway. Connections, both biologically and memetically, are to be cross-referenced thoroughly, including the following of all documentation threads back to their earliest possible origins. Foundation archives are to be scoured for any and all research conducted by and Researcher Sussussa by SYNE66, and updates to current documentation will be made accordingly.

Due to the uncontrollable nature of SCP-XXXX, efforts to convince human society as a whole of its natural existence are currently underway. Brain imaging technology that is significantly more advanced than the most recent in scientific developments has been released under the guise of normal advancement, and should be commonplace no later than 1978. In the event that a more accurate or widespread technology becomes available, it is to be destroyed, and its creators administered Class-C amnestics targeted at their knowledge of brain imaging, neuroscience, and mechanical engineering. Any and all scientific knowledge regarding neuroscience, particularly neurons and their biological functions, is to be updated to fallaciously explain the effects of SCP-XXXX as being due to a false concept known as neurodegeneration.

As per Operation "Mem Peri", two widespread memetic radio waves are to be administered via seventeen Foundation satellites across the surface of the planet. The first wave, equipped with an auditory amnestic agent, is to remove a random array of memories from every human on earth. The second radio wave features a mnestic agent designed to implant false memories and assumptions, as well as altering the general populous's perception of memory as a whole.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the concept of forgetting.

To be more specific, SCP-XXXX refers to the anomalous loss of memories, either by amnestic reduction of clarity, or through degradation of conceptual connections and learned traits. As an individual develops, they become more susceptible to SCP-XXXX, in many cases leading to what is known to the public as conditions such as Alzheimer's or Dementia, which describe the results of an individual being overly exposed to SCP-XXXX and becoming mentally impaired as a result.

Of note is the method by which SCP-XXXX removes memories. Contrary to general amnestics, which remove memories as well as their corresponding neural sac, SCP-XXXX empties neural sacs, leaving the sac itself untouched. This allows for individuals to replenish the sacs with false memories or assumptions that then become rooted as if they were new memories.1
