OriginEdit

Camille Flammarion was an astronomer, author, and believer in psychic phenomenon. A faithful fan of his works created an illustration from one of his books, and it was named the Flammarion Engraving.

One of his many theories about the supernatural was that ghosts were not spirits that had not moved on, but were psychic recordings. He believed in the "stone tape" theory. This is the belief that ghosts and hauntings were recordings from other people that were imprinted onto objects during times of heighten emotional or traumatic states. These could later be replayed under certain conditions.


EffectsEdit

The user may imprint a memory or message onto the engraving to be activated later. The user can choose what or who may activate it.

It was often used as a means of storing instructions or messages for other agents. Usage of the artifact has declined since the advent of answering machines and video cameras.

CollectionEdit

Collected by early agents of Warehouse 13. Artie jokes that nearly every item in the Warehouse is some kind of stone tape.
