Ok, so I have an idea based on a couple different things I've heard, I'm just not sure how to turn in into an SCP.
The basis is as follows:
- Cats love chasing laser pointers and other odd objects because their perceptual systems are primed to recognize and react to small movements.
- As humans, we think this behaviour is hilarious.
- Humans are evolutionary primed to recognize patterns in coinciding or similar events, often ascribing them to some kind of cause or intentional actor. (On the positive side, this has led us to evidence-based scientific thinking and modern society.)
My thought: There might be some kind of higher-order intelligence that operates in a way we can't understand (maybe they exist outside of time), that finds the whole pattern-recognition thing utterly hilarious. I mean, they could be some kind of eldritch begins, or extradimensional intelligences, or AIs, it doesn't really matter.
I can't really think of how they would interact with us, outside of obsessively sharing/commenting on conspiracy theory videos on YouTube and maybe making people believe things as a prank. I'm just not sure how to make that into SCP material.
