Sapience Continuity Anchor

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX has three separate stages in which depend on the stage of development SCP-XXXX is currently within.

  • Stage One Containment Procedures are to be conducted assuming SCP-XXXX is at the primordial stage of the object's development. SCP-XXXX is to then be contained within a standard security locker, made primarily of steel. Said container is to then be kept within a room capable of sustaining a constant temperature of 0°C or lower.
  • Stage Two Containment Procedures are to be conducted assuming SCP-XXXX is at the sentience stage of the object's development. SCP-XXXX is to be held within an Organ Care System Unit, fed a steady intake of cerebro-spinal fluid, and O-type human blood. The internal temperature of the Organ Care Unit is to be kept at constant temperatures between 20°C to 28°C.
  • Stage Three Containment Procedures are to be conducted assuming SCP-XXXX is at the sapience stage of the object's development. SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a specialized, larger Organ Care System Unit, retrofitted to have the following modifications; one mechanical arm fitted to have articulate fingers, one microphone fitted to the front of the Organ Care System Unit container, and neural connectors meant to be attached to SCP-XXXX, allowing usage of previous devices. SCP-XXXX is to be fed a steady intake of cerebro-spinal fluid, and O-type human blood. The interior of the Organ Care System Unit is to be flooded with a clear nutrient solution. SCP-XXXX is to be held within a solitary chamber, given one pencil, and one sheet of lined paper, every one hour when necessary.

At ALL stages of SCP-XXXX's development, under no circumstances is introduction of non-living, solid, organic matter allowed without permission from a Security Clearance Level 3 researcher. SCP-XXXX is to be housed within Research Site 87-Delta.

Description: SCP-XXXX's appearance depends on the stage of it's development.

  • At Stage One, the primordial stage, SCP-XXXX is a small, black, spherical object three centimeters in diameter. The object's composition is a hard, black substance, made of tightly packed neurons. The neurons are inactive, and show similarities to human cranial nerves. SCP-XXXX is capable of locomotion, attaining a maximum speed of two meters-per-second, via rolling. Upon the surface of SCP-XXXX, appears English text which is heavily faded and barely legible, only the subsequent text being visible enough to be transcribed:

SE█I█L NO. 22██7█86 ██OTOTY█E

  • At Stage Two, the sentience stage, SCP-XXXX will be burrowed into an arrangement of brain matter, multiple brains of several animals connected via spinal cords, or makeshift tethers composed of brain cells. The amount of brain matter depends on how long SCP-XXXX has been active in this stage, but the arrangement is consistent, multiple brain 'nodes' attached to various surfaces in the area SCP-XXXX has 'chosen', including walls and ceilings. The object is capable of constructing crude limbs made out of muscle and bone, collected from dead animals within the vicinity.
  • At Stage Three, the sapience stage, SCP-XXXX will have clumped together the collected cerebral mass in the object's possession, compounding them into a vaguely human brain-like shape. Leftover cerebral nodes are carried by the makeshift limbs constructed by the object, and held within a chest cavity of whichever organism SCP-XXXX has used within the construction of it's new body. SCP-XXXX's body will take the appearance of a vaguely human shape and structure, made with the available parts within it's vicinity. SCP-XXXX is capable of it's sapience stage of development even without a constructed body.

SCP-XXXX has been observed to be capable of sustaining these stages of development for an indefinite amount of time, exhibiting an anomalous property of preventing the rotting of neural matter when in physical contact. No other biological substance benefits from this anomaly.

Discovery and Acquisition: SCP-XXXX entered Foundation possession after a raid upon [REDACTED] Laboratories, a company created by Dr. [REDACTED], former head bio-technologies researcher for Prometheus Labs. The main laboratory of [REDACTED] was illegally constructed underground in ██████ State Park, ██████, ██. After reports of anomalous items being manufactured at the facility, the Foundation conducted a raid in 20██, seizing all assets of the company, and taking multiple staff members into Foundation custody.

Of the reported anomalous items listed in the facility's inventory, most were nowhere to be found, absent along with Dr. [REDACTED] himself. Heavily censored technical documents upon the proposal and manufacturing of SCP-XXXX were found, which described the object as a 'self-evolving sapience'.

SCP-XXXX was found using the limited information provided, examining animal populations and presences of animal carrion, until the object was found within the fresh corpse of an eastern ground squirrel. Retrieval and storage was subsequent, and Research Site 87-Delta created around the now-defunct headquarters.

An investigation into Dr. [REDACTED]'s place of residence, as well as his office, revealed several documents involving anomalous technologies and research which were previously thought to be destroyed or stolen from Prometheus Labs, and never recovered. There were also several legal documents regarding Dr. [REDACTED]'s demotion from head bio-technologies researcher due to his use of illegal and unethical methods of conducting research into said fields, which would "draw unnecessary ire from other organizations". Dr. [REDACTED]'s whereabouts are unknown.

Addendum XXXX.1: The following documents contain observational data in testing SCP-XXXX, in which it’s natural behavior is observed.
