SCP-4218

Item Number: SCP-4218

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation web crawlers will be set to search for additional courses in a similar style on websites like Coursera, edX, FutureLearn, and KhanAcademy. If courses matching the criteria are located, web crawlers will remove the course and all associated information and quarantine all removed items for study at Site-15. Once quarantined, members of MTF Rho-1 ("The Professors") should enroll in SCP-4218-1 through SCP-4218-5, as well as any future courses uncovered, as part of ongoing containment. They should complete each course as offered and prepare a report on its contents for the Site Director.

Description: SCP-4218 is a series of five educational web seminars offered by ALEXYLVA UNIVERSITY.1 Courses were discovered by members of MTF Rho-1 during investigation of ALEXYLVA's website. Special attention was given not only because of a previously unknown relationship with Anderson Robotics, but because the courses appear to be accessible interdimensionally via the world wide web.

Each known seminar, here labeled SCP-4218-1 through -5, appears to be made in conjunction with Anderson's Robotics. The format generally adheres to the standard of a MOOC2 or other, similar online course. Topics covered include but are not limited to philosophy, ethics, introductory robotics, anomalous history, and android biology.

A list of known courses is available below:

SCP-4218-1: THE PINOCCHIO QUESTION: HUMANITY'S DEFINITION

COURSE DESCRIPTION: DOES ARTIFICIALLY CREATED LIFE HAVE THE SAME VALUE AS THAT OF A NATURAL BORN HUMAN? DO SLAVES WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS AND VALUE AS THOSE BORN OF A WOMAN? THESE QUESTIONS ARE AMONG THOSE YOU WILL DISCUSS IN THIS VIRTUAL DISCUSSION DESIGNED TO AID STUDENTS IN DISCERNING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO FORMS OF LIFE.

BY THE CLOSE OF THIS COURSE, YOU WILL BE CHARGED WITH AN TEN TABLET ESSAY CONCLUDING WHICH OF YOUR TWO PROFESSORS WAS CREATED THROUGH EXTRANORMAL MEANS AND WHICH WAS BORN A MAN, PROVIDING SUBSTANTIAL AND WELL-SOURCED JUSTIFICATION FOR YOUR REASONING.

A MISSIVE FROM THE ESTEEMED FULVIUS MAGO

Hello students,

I have returned from my administrative leave refreshed and with my love of academia reinvigorated, stronger than ever! It is my wish, and the wish of my grand and glorious Friend, Vincent Anderson, that the knowledge which springs from our unlikely but joyous union should benefit the peoples of every world, every dimension. We must urge our fellow scholars to seek masters of history, of art, of state and politics. We must reach out to those who paint the town red, who rule the world with gold and green, even those who remained loyal to the Lab which stole fire from the gods. Friend Vincent has already planned to launch an inter-curricular program with his Alma Mater.

There are zero excuses to delay Friend Vincent's plan to unite the world by way of shared information, and we must enact the expansion of our new course catalog with all haste. I will be sending emails to the relevant players in our little game of chess, and hope to see the implementation of my Friend's plans as soon as can be expected.

Your ally in the annals of learning,

Professor Fulvius Mago

SCP-4218-6: THE FUTURE OF MAN AND THE NOBLE ANDROID

Course Description: God is dead, and Man killed him. Man has remade himself in the image of his Creator and usurped him. If Man can give life, can nurture it, can take it away, what use is God? What better man to lead the new union of Man and machine than He who is the master of both?

By the end of this eight week course, you will understand why androids are the next stage of human evolution, why Anderson Robotics is the future of the human race, and why only Vincent Anderson is fit to lead it. Students will be charged with a final project demonstrating their understanding of Vincent Anderson's oratorical skills and interdimensional peacekeeping devices to create and secure a better future for the whole of mankind.
