Item #: SCP-2805
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2805 is to be contained within a cryonic containment unit located within Site-77. No personnel are permitted to directly view SCP-2805, and must do all observation through closed circuit cameras. Any Foundation employees who have worked on or around SCP-2805 and subsequently leave employment of the Foundation are to be monitored. Any former personnel who worked with SCP-2805 are to be prevented from taking up employment with The Walt Disney Company.
Description: SCP-2805 is the severed head of American industrialist Walt Disney, frozen in a cryonic freezer. Attached to the freezer are two rotary telephones, circa 1966. Analysis of the cryonic device has been hampered by the fragility of the device and the effect SCP-2805 has on personnel who speak to it. On the base of the cryonic device, the words "Siberian Solutions from the Oneiroi Collective"1 have been embossed.
When a human subject is able to physically view SCP-2805, they will receive a phone call within 24 hours.2 The individual making the call claims to be Walt Disney, who will talk to the subject at length about their hopes for the future, their desires, and the "Epcot" portion of the Walt Disney World amusement park. Digital analysis has confirmed that the voice on the other end of the line sounds identical to recordings of Walt's voice circa 1965. Phone calls were traced to various locations owned by the Disney corporation.
Subjects will report vivid dreams of inhabiting a futuristic city. Most menial tasks are automated, as are most forms of transportation, apparently under the control of the "Tomorrowland Transit Authority". All movements by the person outside of their home are subject to automated forms of transportation, such as moving sidewalks and prevalent monorails. Subjects will report that at the end of the dream, they were escorted to the "EPCOT transportation lobby", a massive elevator which took them up into a blinding light. Following this the subject wakes up.
Occasionally, subjects will see a "carousel of progress" in their dreams, which describes the abolition of most forms of transportation, in order to create a Utopian city. Automobiles are described as being crushed and used in construction, while those who did not like the policies were removed in a nondescript manner. These types of dreams occur in less than 1% of SCP-2805 dream incidents.
Once they wake up, the subjects will undergo a gradual but persistent alteration to their personalities. Subjects will, over the course of months or years, begin to research the Walt Disney World corporation, its history, and try to find relevance between it and their current lives. In many cases, subjects will attempt to take positions within Walt Disney World, if they have not already. It is currently hypothesized that over █% of employees within this park are affected by SCP-2805, or are influenced by affected subjects such as parents or friends.
SCP-2805 was discovered on 09/18/1967, when several secretaries for executives within the Disney corporation reported hearing calls from SCP-2805. When an executive member of the board of directors heard the call, he began to spend significant amounts of time with the original "Epcot" plans, and eventually began to petition strongly for fashioning the "Epcot" park as an industrial center, similar to how Walt Disney had designed it. Foundation personnel intervened once the phenomenon was recognized as legitimate, and SCP-2805 was discovered within a hid[REDACTED]ribbean. It was contained on 02/16/1968, and classified as Euclid.
On 04/25/1968, SCP-2805 began calling Foundation personnel.
Addendum: Interview log 2805-A
Interviewer: Agent Smith
Foreword: SCP-2805 called Agent Smith while the latter was involved in interviewing SCP-███. Familiar with SCP-2805's documentation, Agent Smith carried out an impromptu interview with SCP-2805.
SCP-2805: Hello? Am I coming through?
Agent Smith: Yes, can I, uh, ask who this is?
SCP-2805: My name is Walt. I'm terribly sorry for calling without any forewarning, is this a bad time?
Agent Smith: No, no, uh, please (sound of papers shuffling) please continue.
SCP-2805: Well, if you've got the time, I'd like to talk to you about a project I've had in the works.
Agent Smith: I've got all the time in the world, sir.
SCP-2805: I call it the, uh, Florida Project. It's an experimental prototype for a future community. It's a place where the modern, hectic world wouldn't be a bother. A place where future technologies could be deployed, and then to the world. Unfortunately, I left my plans in the hands of people who didn't share my vision.
Agent Smith: Who?
SCP-2805: Marty. I hired him to work the newspaper, and after my, uh, illness, which I shall not go into, he was placed in charge of the Florida project. That's what I called it. But, they couldn't do it. All my imagineers, brilliant men, but they couldn't do it.
Agent Smith: Couldn't do what, exactly?
SCP-2805: The vision. None of them grasped it. I had thought, with the film, it was very explicit, but it didn't come across to them. I wanted a community of tomorrow, but they gave me a world's fair. Sklar, Marty, he was a wonderful boy, but he got it wrong.
Agent Smith: I'm, uh, sorry to hear that. Is there anything I can do for you?
SCP-2805: Marty couldn't do it, but he's not my only recourse. Other people can. Maybe even you.
Agent Smith: Me?
SCP-2805: I had a great vision, for a place to save the modern world from congestion, and horrible crowded noisiness. I want a place my grandchildren can grow up in. Do you see what I mean?
Agent Smith Yes… but I, uh, don't think you're coming to the right guy.
SCP-2805: Oh, but I am!
Agent Smith: How do you figure?
SCP-2805: Your organization, sir. I can't say with honesty that I understand everything you do, but you've got quite a bit of pull, and you're certainly a mile ahead of the technology sector. You can do it.
Agent Smith: I don't think-
SCP-2805: I need you to help me. So that we can build a better tomorrow. Can you dream it?
Agent Smith: I… don't know.
SCP-2805: If you can dream it, you can do it.
