AEP-582 while inactive.

Item #: AEP-582

Object Class: Oriens

Containment Protocols: AEP-582 is to be kept in a 2 centimeter thick containment box at Site-055, within a 8m x 8m locked room. This room is to be equipped with audio receivers, in case AEP-582-1 attempts contact with the Association. These audio receivers are to automatically block out all sounds louder than 150 decibels in volume, in order to prevent dangers posed by AEP-582-1's scream. In the event that AEP-582-1 attempts to contact the Association, one member of Class B, preferably with a degree in Social Psychology, should respond within 15-45 seconds. All contact with AEP-582-1 is to be recorded by the Association, without AEP-582-1's knowledge and stored digitally on a flash drive kept with AEP-582's transcripts to avoid confusion and ensure quality.

If attempts to answer AEP-582-1's contact through AEP-582 fail, all objects within AEP-582-A are to be classified as AEP-582-2 and are to be retrieved and stored normally, for study or use by the Association. People under the age of 49 within AEP-582-A are to be considered terminated and replacement personnel are to be hired as quickly as possible. Personnel that can be recovered are to be sent to Site-███ to be re-raised by personnel. Floor tiles and light bulbs should be changed. The walls should also be checked for temporal changes (and replaced if changes are present). No technology that was invented after the year 1990 are to be placed in AEP-582's chamber at any time for any reason besides authorized testing or conversions.

Description: AEP-582 is a Vintage GPO Black Bakelite Rotary Telephone from the 1970s, including a small drawer peeking from the front at the bottom of it's base. The rotary dial is covered in scratches, despite the rest of AEP-582 being in mint condition. The source of these scratches is suspected to be from the events transcribed in AEP-582-D, though the real source is currently unknown.

The bottom drawer of AEP-582, when opened, contains transcripts of the previous ten conversations made through AEP-582, printed in courier font on aged paper. These transcripts appear, even if paper was not present in the drawer of AEP-582 at the time of the conversation. Additionally, the paper is aged even if new paper is placed within AEP-582's drawer. These transcripts typically relay the phone number (excluding AEP-582-1's) and full name of anyone participating in a phone call with AEP-582, but substitutes first names with prefixes such as "Dr." or "Mr." when possible.

When AEP-582 was discovered, three transcripts were already present in AEP-582 and will hereafter be referred to as AEP-582-B, AEP-582-C, and AEP-582-D. Information regarding the contents of AEP-582-B, AEP-582-C, and AEP-582-D, can be found in their respective logs.

AEP-582 will show no anomalous properties when used for standard phone calls of any nature. When murder or illegal activities is conversed within 7.5m of AEP-582 while performing a call, AEP-582 will emit a 215 decibel scream. Immediately after, all matter within 7.5m will be changed temporally into a 1970's equivalent or version (This anomalous effect of AEP-582 is to be referred to as AEP-582-A). All instances of temporally changed objects are to hereafter be referred to as AEP-582-2. Any person within range of AEP-582-A will be changed into themselves as they were in the year 1970, both physically and in memory. If a person within AEP-582-A wasn't alive in the year 1970, they cease to exist. This effect is currently irreversible and any personnel lost are considered terminated.

AEP-582-1, more formally known as John ██████ is a 32 year old Caucasian male, who was born in ██████, Michigan in the year 1938.1 AEP-582-1 will, when asked, respond with corresponding information. AEP-582-1 will occasionally (about two-three times a weak) attempt to make contact through AEP-582. AEP-582 does not seem to care who responds to this contact. Failure to answer this call within 45 seconds will result in AEP-582-1's 215 decibel scream, followed by a ten minute period of AEP-582-A.

AEP-582-1 speaks in the context of a busy business man, working on an unnamed project in ██████, Michigan. All attempts to question the nature of the project result in the 215 decibel scream from AEP-582-1, followed immediately by a ten minute duration of AEP-582-A. When transcripts are checked in regards to this scream, only "a murder occurs" is written in the place of screaming. An interview with AEP-582-1 (Interview-582-1) is provided in Recovered Documents. After Interview-582-1, no further interviews with AEP-582-1 are to be attempted.

Addendum 1 : After discovery that AEP-582-A and creation of AEP-582-2 can be controllable, via leaving an object within 0.3m of AEP-582 for 24 hours with no outside interruption.
