Item #: SCP-4002

Object Class: Keter

Laconic Containment Procedures: Keep the file for SCP-4002 on a special server only the O5 Council can access. A contagious memetic trigger has been spread to all of humanity to act as an early warning system that SCP-4002 has breached containment and is signified by people saying "yea," or "sure," when in the presence of an anomaly; if this happens, panic.

Laconic Description: SCP-4002 is an agreement between an ancient Mesopotamian king that ruled around 3000 B.C. and an unnamed god in which the king was given the "Seed of Life" to keep his kingdom from starving. In return, the king gave away a secret power latent in humans to the god so that humanity would survive but lose that power. According to the article, this ability is that humans are naturally anomalous and create new anomalies and SCPs just by existing.

The agreement is classified as Keter because it could end at any time, meaning all humans would become anomalous again and quickly fill the world with an unstoppable number of SCPs and other such anomalies.

A log between several O5 Members implies that if necessary and possible, they would kill the entire world's population and replace them with custom-made, non-anomalous humans.

Additional Context: The article also references SCP-2000, hinting that the Foundation had to discover the Seed of Life to gain the ability to mass-produce humans and, by finding it also discovered SCP-4002. If SCP-2000 can be used to mass-produce custom-made humans, it begs the question if the Foundation could create a new, non-anomalous race of humans.

SCP-4002 was an entry in the SCP-4000 Contest, where it won 22nd place.
