Secure, Contain, Protect...

I should have mentioned earlier the winner of the SCP-2000 contest (which I didn't realise was based around a science fiction theme) is this, not my favourite but still good. It's similar to a counter-factual that William Burroughs and Brion Gysin often discussed, that modern humans have been around for half a million years, but modern civilisation only six thousand years. There has been, it seems, ample time, for more than one civilisation to rise up, fall down and fade into the faintest of memories.
