The Pataphysics Division
rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: A Foundation-controlled artificial intelligence construct (Eris.aic) is to review new revisions to be made to mainlist Foundation files for keywords such as "pataphysics" and "metaphysics". These revisions are to be preemptively denied, then reviewed by MTF Beta-20 ("Slapsticks") for potential occurrences of SCP-XXXX.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be detained, interrogated for information, then put onto an amnestic regimen consisting of controlled weekly dosages of Class-C amnestics and electroshock therapy. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be monitored for further anomalous activity afterwards.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a recurring phenomenon involving revisions made to personnel files belonging to Foundation personnel, most frequently researchers or agents. SCP-XXXX consists of assignment to the "Pataphysics Division", a nonexistent department of the SCP Foundation supposedly researching metaphysical phenomena outside humanity's current understanding. SCP-XXXX also impacts memory; personnel whose files are affected by SCP-XXXX are designated instances of SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1 will believe that they are members of the Pataphysics Division. Despite never partaking in these activities, SCP-XXXX-1 instances will be able to recall memories of experiments, research, and incidents pertaining to the Pataphysics Division.
