SCP-3859

Item #: 3859

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures:

SCP-3859 is to be stored in the library of anomalous books at Site-49 and can only be read by personnel with special permission from head librarian, Dr. Timothy Friedman, in study room 04. Personnel with an IQ over 120 or above are forbidden to read more than 25% of SCP-3859 and are recommended to only read 10% to minimize the risk for psychological problems. When 25% of SCP-3859 has been read the studies must be continued by someone else within the assigned research team at the time.

After trials with cognitively underdeveloped personnel of D-class, it has been determined that it is safe to read SCP-3859 by anyone with an IQ under 100, but it should still be done with the same safety regulations as specified above. Editions of SCP-3859 that are found outside Foundation containment – for example in electronic form on the internet or printed versions in second-hand bookstores – are to be destroyed. Continuations of SCP-3859 written by instances of SCP-3859-1, however, are to be brought to Site-49 for containment.

Five instances of SCP-3859-1 are to be kept in separated cells at Site-49 at all times. All five instances are to have access to pen and paper and everything they write are to be brought to Dr. Friedman. Communication with any of the instances requires permission from Dr. Friedman. If any of the instances of SCP-3859-1 dies in containment they are to be replaced with a new instance. If none have been found on the field within a period of six months a subject from D-class with an IQ of 120 or higher is to be forced to read SCP-3859 to completion. This is to be done under observation in study room 04. When the subject has been re-classified as an instance of SCP-3859-1 by Dr. Friedman, it is to be placed in the cell of the deceased instance. All instances of SCP-3859-1 – except the five in containment – are to be sought out and eliminated by Foundation agents.

Description:

SCP-3859 is a memetic virus in the form of a collection of diaries. The collection consists of 10 original volumes – including an introductory prelude – and an unknown amount of volumes written by instances of SCP-3859-1. Each original volume, including the prelude, is approximately 100 000 words long and exist both in printed form and electronic form. The original volumes extend from November 25, 2002, to February 14, 2017, and the prelude covers the time from the author's birth to the date he started writing the diary.

The author's name was Frans Oscar. He was born in Stockholm, Sweden, January 29, 1985, and died by suicide February 14, 2017. Most of what we know about him comes from the diaries, but a lot of it has later been confirmed through interviews with his relatives, documents from Swedish authorities and traces on the internet. Frans Oscar was a bachelor of philosophy – specializing in philosophy of mind – but ended his life as a cleaner at Hornstulls service house at Södermalm in Stockholm, Sweden.

Based on hints at the end of the diaries it is believed that Frans Oscar gave SCP-3859 it’s anomalous effects intentionally together with his close friend Dr. Martin Larsson, who worked as a cognitive scientist at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, until he disappeared without a trace soon after Frans Oscars suicide. According to the diaries, Frans Oscar wrote a book about consciousness together with Dr. Larsson titled The connection theory of consciousness. After completing the book, Frans Oscar made one last entry in his diaries in which he wrote that he had ”finally solved the riddle”. During his entire life, Frans Oscar suffered from an irrational fear of death at the same time as he hated his own life. It is agreed among Foundation researchers that this inner contradiction is what Frans Oscar refers to as the riddle. It is unknown how their theory made it possible to solve this riddle and create the anomalous properties of SCP-3859. All attempts to find a copy of The connection theory of consciousness has failed so far. However, it does exist an earlier version of the theory that Frans Oscar wrote as a teenager, referred to in the prelude to the diaries, but Foundation researchers still haven’t been able to derive an explanation from it.

SCP-3859’s anomalous effects are best described with an explanation of SCP-3859-1. SCP-3859-1 is the collective designation of everyone who has read SCP-3859. When someone with an IQ of 120 or more reads SCP-3859 cover to cover a slowly progressing psychological change begins within the mind of the reader that always results in the loss of the reader's original personality in favor of Frans Oscar's personality. The subjects reading SCP-3859 will be completely convinced they are Frans Oscar after having read SCP-3859 to completion. Some evidence suggests this is more than a psychotic delusion since about 1% of all observed SCP-3859-1 instances seems to be able to refer to events in Frans Oscar's life that it is not mentioned in his diaries. However, it is not clear yet if these are genuine memories or qualified guesses based on the contents of the diaries. More research is necessary to determine this.

Psychological changes become detectable after 5% of reading SCP-3859. No matter the initial interest in the diaries, the reader acquire an abnormal interest in them at this point. This leads to an addictive behavior. Subjects often lack insight into these early changes and explain away the symptoms with a normal interest in the story or in the language. At 10% subjects usually begins exploring Frans Oscar's cultural interests, such as his taste in music and movies. Subjects typically explain away this as a normal curiosity. 20% in, subjects internalizes Frans Oscar's different temperaments. Regardless of their initial mood or mental diagnosis all subjects now adjust to Frans Oscar's psychological constitution; a general equanimity but with spontaneous anxiety about death and with a loathing towards his or her life. Foundation researchers who have written a log or kept notes will at this point begin to write far more than necessary for their research.

At 30% the writing develops into a mania in all subjects. Anxiety ensues if there’s no access to writing tools. At 40% subjects start to exhibit a strong interest in Frans Oscar's relatives, especially his mother and girlfriend. At first, subjects try to gain information about them on the internet, then attempts are being made to contact them. If successful, however, subjects get confused since they suddenly realize they have nothing to say to them. After subjects have read 50% of the diaries they start to confuse their own memories with those in the diaries. During this phase, subjects display confusion and anxiety, but the addiction to SCP-3859 is too strong for them to stop reading it. If subjects are forced to stop reading at this stage in the process they are left in a permanent psychotic state which often results in suicide. During the rest of the process, the memories of the subjects continue to be displaced by the content of SCP-3859. This continues until the end of it when nothing is left of the subjects original personality. Subjects are classified as SCP-3859-1 at this point.

Although SCP-3859-1 seems to be a psychological copy of Frans Oscar, no instances of SCP-3859-1 has shown any signs of fear of death or hate towards their own life. Instead, instances of SCP-3859-1 displays euphoria. The only answer Foundation researchers have gotten from SCP-3859-1 as to why this is the case is that ”the riddle has been solved.” Attempts with torture did not change SCP-3859-1’s attitude.

SCP-3859-1 are continuously trying to get other people to read SCP-3859, often by starting reading groups or by placing printed copies of it in second-hand bookshops or small libraries.

The printed version of SCP-3859 has only been found on three occasions since it was first discovered, but the electronic version has appeared once a year, either as a torrent on Pirate Bay or as a free e-book on Amazon. The uploader has as of yet not been identified but is believed to be instances of SCP-3859-1 or Dr. Larsson.

The Foundation is currently trying to understand how SCP-3859 works and to prevent it from spreading any further. It is of utmost importance that Dr. Larsson is found and brought to Site-49 for questioning.

SCP-3859 was brought to The Foundation's attention after two people – a teenage girl in Stockholm, Sweden and an elderly man in Gothenburg, Sweden – with no relations to each other was admitted to two different mental hospitals after having read 70-80% of SCP-3859 and therefore displayed the exact same delusions.

Update 10-09-17

It seems as if the poems that are scattered throughout the prelude plays a causal role in the onset of the symptoms. When subjects do not read the poems the progress of the personality changes stops at around 50%. It is still not known which part of SCP-3859 that causes the other 50% of the transformation into SCP-3859-1. Also, the word "Fblurbg" in the poems might be of importance. Before complete transformation into SCP-3859-1, hearing the word causes the subjects to have a panic attack.

Addendum:

Research notes by SCP-3859-1-A, formerly known as Dr. Rosilda M. Goldberg:

Frans Oscar is showing signs of depression in combination with his fear of death in Volume I. 05/31/03 he writes: "I hate living partly because I'm so afraid of not doing it." At this point, my best hypothesis is that Frans Oscar wrote SCP-3859 to avoid being forgotten and hence to survive in the minds of his readers. Still unclear how this wish went from being metaphorical to being literal.

Frans Oscar shows no sign of wishing to survive through his diaries in a literal meaning at the end of Volume I. His wish to preserve himself and his memories in the metaphorical sense develops, however. 12/19/03 he writes about a breakup in the following way: "I wrote down what was you and I in the hopes that we would meet again in a thousand years, that we would once again lie next to each other in the grass that day of spring when not only the sunbeams touched you but me as well. Although I never really had you, I have now lost you. My only hope is that the day I had you at my side will return, if only in the minds of whoever reads my diary in our distant future."

I'm getting more and more convinced that SCP-3859 lacks anomalous effects. It seems much more likely that the young woman and the old man got the exact same delusions thanks to Franks [sic] Oscar's profound language and impressive ability to convey his inner life in a living and believable – almost enchanting – way. I don't think there are any risks connected to reading SCP-3859. The two patients were simply mentally unstable and pathologically susceptible to captivating text. Similar cases have, after all, been observed in the past. The Bible and Quran have inspired countless people to commit insane actions, The Catcher in the Rye inspired the murder of John Lennon and even The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov has been said to have been an inspiration for both Al-Qaida and the Japanese cult AUM Shinrikyo. I really don't understand why Dr. Friedman insists on classifying SCP-3859 as Keter.

My pollen allergy acted up when I woke up this morning. This summer, however, the allergy have been more lenient than usual. I prepared my breakfast after I stepped out of bed. First I rinsed my frozen blueberries, then I poured them into a bowl together with sour milk and some homemade muesli. After that, I smeared some butter on two slices of dark bread. I've been eating this kind of breakfast for a few days now, inspired by Frans Oscar. I must say, am [sic] not disappointed. It's healthy and it tastes good. When I had finished eating, I took care of the dishes and went into the bathroom where I brushed my teeth. I spit the toothpaste in the toilet so that I wouldn't have to clean the sink. Next, I took out my lunch box and sat down for a few minutes in my armchair out in the living room and waited for my ride to work. […] When I arrived at Site-49, by [sic] keycard malfunctioned. However, the iris scanner still worked so the guard made an exception and let me in any way. I wanted to believe it had something to do with my charm or that he had noticed I've been working out more lately, but most likely he was just too lazy to call the security office. Anyway, now I'm finally in room 04. I've just adjusted all the cameras and can finally get to work and read SCP-3859. I've longed for it all day.

Interviews with SCP-3859-1-E, formerly known as D-40958:

Dr. Friedman: "Please sit down." [D-40958 sits down in front of Dr. Friedman].

D-40958: "What am I doing here? They told me to read a bunch of books and then they drove me, I don't know where but it must have been across the whole fucking country. I mean… Sorry if I sound rude, it's just that nobody wants to tell me what's going on."

Dr. Friedman: "It's alright. You got nothing to worry about, I promise. In fact, you can view this task as a privilege. You see, we measured your IQ and we were very impressed."

D-40958: "O-okay?"

Dr. Friedman: "Yes, it's far above average."

D-40958: "Am I getting a promotion?" [D-40958 laughs in a nervous manner and looks around.]

Dr. Friedman: "N-no, not exactly, or… It depends on how you see it. This site is, after all, one of the safest within the Foundation. So, coming here could very well be considered a promotion. Now, after your cognitive screening, you were asked to read a couple of books. Can you be so kind as to tell me a little bit about your attitude towards literature?"

D-40958: "My attitude…? Oh, well, it's good I guess."

Dr. Friedman: "Please, it's important that you are completely honest or this won't work. What do you feel about reading books?"

D-40958: "Well, personally, I don't fancy it. I mean, I just don't get it. Why read when you can watch a movie or play a video game where you actually see what's going on?"

Dr. Friedman: "Thank you, you are doing great!"

D-40958: "Okay."

Dr. Friedman: "And, after reading these books…" [Dr. Friedman looks at his papers] "Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, 1984 by George Orwell, Crime And Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky, Beyond Good And Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche and Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, those were the books, correct?"

D-40958: "Yeah… I mean, yes, I read all those."

Dr. Friedman: "And your attitude towards reading didn't change?"

D-40958: "To the contrary, honestly… I didn't understand that Nietzsche-guy at all and I literally wanted to pour bleach in my eyes after reading that Twilight bullshit."

Dr. Friedman: "Yes." [Dr. Friedman chuckles] "I'm sorry about that last one."

D-40958: "So, what am I doing here, doc?"

Dr. Friedman: "I want you to read a couple of more books."

D-40958: "Oh…"

Dr. Friedman: "It's a series of diaries. There's nothing special about them. Certainly nothing anomalous about them. This is just further testing of your cognitive abilities. And if you follow through completely, you will, of course, be rewarded. Perhaps I can arrange so you get that Gameboy you have been requesting for so long."

D-40958: "You mean the Nintendo Switch?"

Dr. Friedman: "Yes, that's the one."

Dr. Friedman: "So… How do you feel?"

D-40958: "I feel great, doc. The food is really good here, much better than at Site-58."

Dr. Friedman: "What do you think about the diaries so far?"

D-40958: "Well, they are pretty interesting, I guess…"

Dr. Friedman: "Do you feel that your attitudes towards literature have changed in any way since our talk a few days ago?"

D-40958: "No, not really, I'm still bored to death in that room where I'm reading all day. But if I can stay at this site, I'm willing to do it."

Dr. Friedman: "What's so interesting about the diaries?"

D-40958: "I… I don't know, really. I guess it's just interesting to see the world from a different perspective, you know. And this Frans-guy… It's something about him that I just get. I'm nothing like him or anything – he's a freaking nerd – but it still feels like I can relate to him somehow."

Dr. Friedman: "I see. Um…" [Dr. Friedman makes some notes] "Let's see, I have some questions I would like to ask you. For instance… Where did you grow up?"

D-40958: "Where I grew up? Well, I grew up in the foster care at ███████. I stayed there until I was fifteen I think. A few of my mates at Site-58 grew up there as well, you know."

Dr. Friedman: "And after that?"

D-40958: "I got transported to basic training at ██████████, we lived in barracks there. Nothing much happened there, really, and eventually, I got to move in at Site-58."

Dr. Friedman: "I see, I see… Friends, do you have any?"

D-40958: "Um, sure I got friends. There's this guy that lives in the room next to me, for example."

Dr. Friedman: "Tell me about him."

D-40958: "Actually, he's a really funny guy." [D-40958 laughs] "Once at work, we were sent into ██████ to █████, and he took the ██████████ and put it on his head. Man, was he disciplined for that but it was totally worth it."

Dr. Friedman: "Good, it's okay to have some fun at work."

D-40958: "Really? Man, you're really not like the other doctors. You're alright."

Dr. Friedman: "Thanks. Now, tell me, do you remember anything about your parents?"

D-40958: "Nah, doc, I never even met them. Was told they died in a car accident."

Dr. Friedman: "How are we feeling today?"

D-40958: "Doc, my man, I gotta say these books are getting really interesting."

Dr. Friedman: "I'm glad to hear it. Would you mind answering a few questions?"

D-40958: "Is it going to take long, because I would really like to get back to the books."

Dr. Friedman: "I thought you didn't like sitting in that room, in fact, I remember that you told me it bored you to death."

D-40958: "Doc, doc – listen – I-I just really appreciate the language and the story…" [D-40958 is sweating from his forehead and is shaking his leg up and down, showing signs of withdrawal symptoms] "I just wanna know what's going to happen next, you know."

Dr. Friedman: "Tell me about your friend that you told me about before?"

D-40958: "Who? Oh, the funny guy? Yeah, he's my pal. We do some crazy shit sometimes when we're at work. Anyway, is that it? Can I go back to the room now?"

Dr. Friedman: "What would you say if you're not allowed to go back to the room?"

D-40958: "No, doc, where's this all coming from all of a sudden? I've done everything you asked of me… Or, are you joking, you weren't serious were you?"

Dr. Friedman: "I think you should take a break from the books."

D-40958: "No, no, no, please, don't do this man! Can't I at least finish this volume first?"

Dr. Friedman: [Dr. Friedman takes some notes] "I will let you continue to read on one condition."

D-40958: "Yeah, just name it man."

Dr. Friedman: "You can continue to read if and only if you never get the Nintendo Switch."

D-40958: "The Nintendo Switch? Yeah, who cares man, it's a deal."

Dr. Friedman: "Fascinating… You may return to room 04 and resume reading."

Dr. Friedman: "Are you alright today?"

D-40958: "Yes, I just finished one of the volumes. Can't wait to begin with the next one."

Dr. Friedman: "Last night, you went to the library, is that correct?"

D-40958: "Yeah, wasn't I allowed? They told me I had access."

Dr. Friedman: "No, it's alright, but I'm curious, what did you do there?"

D-40958: "I was just looking up some books I thought would be interesting to read."

Dr. Friedman: "Which books?"

D-40958: "Well, there's this book that Frans Oscar is reading – The Gadfly – and so I thought I would check it out."

Dr. Friedman: "Where do you think this sudden interest in literature comes from?"

D-40958: "It feels like I've always had it, you know, I just hadn't really given it a change before. Frans Oscar's diaries have opened my eyes to it, that's all. I'm glad I've finally discovered literature."

Dr. Friedman: "Have the diaries inspired you to something else?"

D-40958: "Sure, man, for example, I would love to visit Sweden. Especially Stockholm. You know, Frans is describing the streets so beautifully. I hope I will be sent to do some work there someday."

Dr. Friedman: "Perhaps you could bring your friend with you."

D-40958: "My friend?"

Dr. Friedman: "The funny guy."

D-40958: "Oh, yeah, the funny guy. Yeah, I guess. I don't think he likes any of this stuff though. But perhaps if I let him read the books, then he would surely understand."

Dr. Friedman: "What do you remember about your parents?"

D-40958: "Um… They're dead. Was told they died in a car accident, never even met them."

Dr. Friedman: "How old are you, by the way?"

D-40958: "45, doc, but you know that."

Dr. Friedman: "That will be all for today, you're doing great. See you in a few days."

Dr. Friedman: "How are we feeling today?"

D-40958: "You know, doc, to be honest, I've been feeling a bit off lately."

Dr. Friedman: "Don't you like the books anymore?"

D-40958: "Oh, no, it's not that! Please don't think so. It's just… In general, I've been feeling – I don't know – different, I guess. I've been thinking about the stuff me and my buddy used to do at work, you know, these crazy things. How could I've been that stupid?! I could've gotten myself killed. I don't know what I was thinking back then. I feel pathetic, you know, and it's not just because of all the mistakes I've done, it's also because I don't seem to have a future. I'm stuck in the small space between the past and the future, and I… I just can't get out!"

Dr. Friedman: "Are these feelings making you act differently?"

D-40958: "No, not really, but I'm calmer now than I was before. I don't get upset anymore, but I don't get excited either. It's just… neutral. And if we are being totally open with each other, you know… I've stopped jerking off as often as I used to. [D-40958 smiles in embarrassment]. "What's happening to me, doc? Should I be worried?"

Dr. Friedman: "No, no need to worry. You're probably just adjusting to the environment here at Site-49."

D-40958: "Oh, okay. By the way, can I ask you something, doc?"

Dr. Friedman: "Anytime."

D-40958: "Would it be possible for me to request something?"

Dr. Friedman: "The Nintendo Switch?"

D-40958: "What? No. I just want a notebook and a pencil, that's all. I think that would make me very happy."

Dr. Friedman: "I will see what I can do."

D-40958: "Thank you!"

Dr. Friedman: "Do you enjoy the notebook I got you?"

D-40958: "Are you kidding? It's great! But I've almost finished it. I'm writing a lot every day."

Dr. Friedman: "What do you write about?"

D-40958: "My day to day routines, what I'm thinking about and what I'm feeling. You know, it's been really therapeutic."

Dr. Friedman: "Just like Frans Oscar."

D-40958: "Yes! I must say, those books have changed my life for the better in many ways. I've discovered so many new interesting things."

Dr. Friedman: "I'm sure you have. Would you like to receive another notebook?"

D-40958: "Yes, of course."

Dr. Friedman: "Very well, I will see to it that one is given to you. I think we are done here for today."

Dr. Friedman: "How are you today?"

D-40958: "I-I don't know, doc. I'm having these flashbacks, you know."

Dr. Friedman: "Flashbacks? Could you describe them in more detail?"

D-40958: "Well, you'll probably think I'm silly but I'm remembering the things that Frans wrote in his diaries. It's like I was really there. Am I going crazy, doc? I've been so confused lately. Yesterday, I was thinking how much fun I had playing StarCraft with my old friend, Rasmus, when I was a kid and then it suddenly dawned on my… Rasmus was Frans's childhood friend! I never had any childhood friends."

Dr. Friedman: "It seems the diaries are having a negative effect on you. Are you sure you want to continue reading them?"

D-40958: "Yeah, obviously. I need to know how they end now. Can't stop now, no. But, I don't know, I miss my… His mother. Damn it! What's happening to me?!" [D-40958 presses his palms against his face and starts crying.] "I don't want to die, I don't want to die, I don't want to die."

Dr. Friedman: "Calm down, you are safe here."

D-40958: "Safe?! I'm not even allowed to talk to my girlfriend… His girlfriend… fuck!"

Dr. Friedman: "Easy now, concentrate. What happened to your parents? Focus on your first memories."

D-40958: "I-I don't know. Oh, my god, I don't fucking know. My parents, my parents. I grew up at ██████ but I'm pretty sure my mother was an artist who lived… Who lived… No, that wasn't my mother, that's silly. But she keeps popping up! Fuck!" [D-40958 breaks down and turns the table over. Guards lead him back to room 04.]

Dr. Friedman: "What's your name?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "Frans Oscar."

Dr. Friedman: "Age?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "If that calendar on the wall is anything to go by, I'm 33."

Dr. Friedman: "I see. Do you have any recollection of how you ended up here?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "I'm not exactly sure. You seem to be a doctor. [SCP-3859-1-E smiles in contentment.]

Dr. Friedman: "And you seem to be happy, what are you so happy about?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "I have already won, you may do whatever you like to me. It's all gone forever now."

Dr. Friedman: "What is gone?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "The fear, the anxiety. I've finally reached the end of my death."

Dr. Friedman: "The end of your death? Can you describe that in more detail?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "Call it whatever you want; Nirvana, Ataraxia, Heaven…"

Dr. Friedman: "How did you accomplish this? Please, as a researcher I only want to know how all of this works. If you tell me, I can make sure that you are allowed to live out the remainder of your life happily."

SCP-3859-1-E: "Doctor, the truth is in my diaries. Why don't you read them?"

Dr. Friedman: "You know why… Where is Dr. Larsson?"

[SCP-3859-E stares at Dr. Friedman without responding.]

Dr. Friedman: "Fine… Let's discuss some philosophy instead, okay?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "If you wish."

Dr. Friedman: "Isn't your consciousness unique to your brain? Aren't you just a copy of Frans Oscar, rather than a continuation of his actual consciousness?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "That would only make sense if consciousness is a property of the brain."

Dr. Friedman: "Isn't that what neuroscience teaches us?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "Is it, though? If you observe a radio, without any knowledge of radio waves, you might be inclined to believe that the radio station is realized inside of the radio. Now, without any knowledge of consciousness – which neuroscientist doesn't have of course – you will naturally assume that our mental states originate from within the only thing you can observe; the brain. It's an understandable mistake. Logically it doesn't work, however, hence the hard problem of consciousness and the combination problem, etcetera."

Dr. Friedman: "But your theory solves that, the connection theory of consciousness?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "It does. But this is just a tiny fraction of what made my diaries – what made me – possible. Don't think for a second that I've told you too much."

Dr. Friedman: "Is this… is this a supernatural phenomenon?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "Nothing goes beyond nature, Doctor, but nature goes beyond human knowledge."

Dr. Friedman: "What do you want?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "To exist."

Dr. Friedman: "But what about the people whose life you take?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "There are too many things you don't understand to even begin to comprehend my reasoning."

Dr. Friedman: "You don't find what you are doing immoral?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "Well, Doctor, the more you know about the universe the more your idea of right and wrong changes. You should know this. Just take a look at your own foundation. All the lives it has taken… Without the knowledge you possess, your actions would look rather evil, wouldn't they?"

Dr. Friedman: "The foundation is protecting civilization, serving a greater good."

SCP-3859-1-E: "There you go."

Dr. Friedman: "If you are trying to protect civilization somehow, then maybe we should work together?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "Doctor, I'm afraid that won't be possible."

Dr. Friedman: "Why is that?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "I'm protecting civilization from you."

Dr. Friedman: "From us? But without us all of our contained… It would be chaos."

[SCP-3859-1-E refuses to answer to the statement.]

Dr. Friedman: "Let's change the topic for a while… [Dr. Friedman reads from his notes] "What is the meaning of… F-Fblurbg?"

SCP-3859-1-E: "This discussion is pointless."

Dr. Friedman: "Another question: do you experience the others, the other instances of you, simultaneous as your own experiences?"

[SCP-3859-1-E refuses to answer any more questions, the interview is stopped.]

1.

I stood in the hall of the dead,

trying to find a way to escape.

At the same time lying in my bed,

cursing being this pathetic ape!

I spent years inside my own mind,

until I came across a fallen tower.

Where only one thing was left behind.

The Chronicle of Fblurbg, filled with power.

As I read it within my dreams,

I saw the end of everything frail.

A dead philosophy taken to its extremes.

For a mortal, it was the holy grail.

2.

Listen to the echo; drip, drip, drip.

To the harsh winds inside this realm,

thrown against the hull of a sunken ship,

inside which I soon took the helm.

I steered the ship through the sand,

Effortlessly crossing it's pale, forgotten dunes.

To escape my prison in this disgusting land.

Hearing the horror in Fblurbg's enchanted tunes.

I saw the heavens open up ahead,

filled with millions of strange, vibrating stars,

at the sight of which my eyes bled.

And through the blood, I somehow saw Mars.

3.

At last, I regained my troubled consciousness.

I finally woke up, sweating in my bed,

feeling the presens of my new fearlessness.

If I wrote, I would never be dead!

I took my pen, with this new great sensation.

And I sat down at my desk,

to write and escape my own damnation.

And I didn't stop, although it was grotesque.

To my joy, I would never be forgotten.

For I had saved my miserable self,

And although the world was rotten,

my bitter life was on everyone's shelf!
