That weird feeling

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is impossible to contain, but does not pose a threat to normalcy. Reports of matching descriptions are to be monitored by Foundation web-crawlers, and removed at their discretion.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to an anomalous feeling1 that occurs in humans during the onset of REM2 sleep, the cycles of which tend to occur ninety or more minutes after the initial cessation of consciousness in a subject. SCP-XXXX has thus far proven impossible to predict, with different personnel experiencing its effects at different times, with varying rates of exposure, as well as varying intensities. Current estimates put SCP-XXXX's rate of exposure at 0.08% of all sleeping humans at any given time.

Upon waking up, subjects who had been under the influence of SCP-XXXX report strange, vivid dreams of varying complexities, as well as an inability to properly define their current mood. Effects of SCP-XXXX last between ten minutes and two hours, and can cause further effects such as paranoia, confusion, or contemplative euphoria. Attempts have been made to describe SCP-XXXX, however, aside from a baseline clinical explanation of its effects, no personnel have managed to definitively capture its nature in a way that is consistent with the accounts of other subjects. Despite this, it is believed that SCP-XXXX causes the same general feeling in all those affected, and theories into its mind-affecting properties are ongoing.

Addendum:
On 2.10.2019, Dr. Henry Rouslin, a researcher at Site-96, woke up from a memetically induced coma, caused by improper use of an inoculative agent, and found that he was able to describe SCP-XXXX in vivid detail. However, he was not able to start his computer in time to write it down, and thus, the description was lost.
