Belief Eradication Project / BEP
The BEP was a memetic/psychological/cognitive attempt at removing all belief from a baseline-equivalent sapient mind. Due to the limited processing of the baseline-equivalent, and its resultant inability to use prior data without doublechecking the facts emself, the project was completely unsuccessful. Certain higher toposophics had cautioned against such an action, while others indicated that following through the experiment was the only way baseline-grade science could progress in this subfield.

The affected sapient was reestablished from a memory backup and reinstated in normal society with no repercussions after the restored backup.
