Main Facility

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Personnel working with SCP-XXXX are specialised cognitohazard containment teams, each headed by Level 4 personnel. Said containment teams are required to take part in a re-evaluation course every six months.

Electronic equipment or -communication are not permitted within 50 metres of SCP-XXXX's outer containment zone. The remains of personnel presumed MIA/KIA will not be retrieved, even if the above procedures are followed. Any electronic device believed to be carrying SCP-XXXX's effects is to be immediately incinerated or otherwise destroyed.

One primary and three back-up emergency telegram lines from the outer containment zone with MTF Eta-10 ("See No Evil") are required to be operational.

After initial discovery, all progress in exploration and extraction of SCP-XXXX-A has been done by remote controlled drones.

Description: Currently, the accepted understanding of SCP-XXXX-2 indicates that it is a type of electronic cognitohazard or memetic phenomenon. SCP-XXXX-2 is capable of propagating through electronic equipment, and is presumed to trigger immediately when visually observed1.

SCP-XXXX-1 is an unregistered but fully operational Foundation Site which either houses or is the source of SCP-XXXX-2. No records or witness accounts of this Site have been found. However, security codes from Foundation personnel are able to unlock doors and the Foundation seal is present on the structures, systems and materials within the facility. Whether SCP-XXXX-2 directly connected to SCP-XXXX-1 itself or an infohazardous object inside is unknown.

Any person, regardless of prior Foundation employment, exposed to SCP-XXXX-2 becomes convinced that they are employed at SCP-XXXX-1 and will presumably lose memory of their prior life. Moreover, those exposed (designated hereafter as SCP-XXXX-A) will treat SCP-XXXX-1 as the only legitimate Foundation Site and assume that other Foundation establishments are faux. So far, all attempts at communication have been met with hostility.

84% of captured SCP-XXXX-A were in possession of Foundation ID's that were tested and confirmed to be authentic2. Research into the personnel archive of global Foundation personnel records indicate the possibility that SCP-XXXX somehow tampers with records as well as memories.

The absence of SCP-XXXX-1 (marked Site-█ on recovered ID's) in digital archives suggest anomalous tampering, as records are spread around globally and fractured in the case of foul play. Investigation by Rho-9 ("Technical Support") and Foundation archivists uncovered that information about the former Site-█ is present in outdated paper records. According to said archives, Site-█ was decommissioned and demolished in 1958 after an outbreak of multiple SCPs destroyed the majority of the structure. No information prior to and after this incident has been recovered.

Addendum A

Performed exploration, while resulting in loss of personnel, provides additional insight in the spread of SCP-XXXX-2

Addendum B

Interrogation of SCP-XXXX-A instances reveals additional information.

Addendum C
Blackbox data

Update: While the raid on SCP-XXXX has resulted in the loss of the entirety of the raid squadron, an encrypted signal was broadcast from the personal blackbox of agent ███████5

Addendum D

The feasibility of termination or otherwise neutralising SCP-XXXX is currently under investigation. Multiple proposals are currently heavily debated.


Addendum E
Discovery and classification

On 08/03/2015, Prime Minister (Taoiseach) of Ireland informed the Foundation that they recieved a complaint from the Department of Preservation6. According to the report, the Foundation supposedly captured and relocated a "Mactirmór" that had been under surveillance by said department in ██████, Meath. The Foundation has no records of activity in ██████, Meath around the time of the letter's arrival. The ''Department of Preservation'' summarily interpreted this capture of the entity as a hostile action on the Foundation's part. Shortly afterwards, SCP-XXXX received its classification.

Addendum: (ignore this for now)

Interactive outcome based on selected option?

Incident report: Site Director Hackett was discovered to be infected with SCP-XXXX when he attempted to spread SCP-XXXX through the Site-wide security monitors. This attempt was foiled by Dr. Keys, whom intervened. She is currently recovering from multiple stabwounds inflicted by Hackett using a pocket knife. Site Director Hackett was terminated by firearm by Security Officer Clark.

The feasibility of termination or otherwise neutralising SCP-XXXX is currently under investigation.

This is ridiculous. We're the bloody Foundation, we don't destroy what we don't understand. For all we know attempting to destroy this will make it ten times worse. This is too drastic.

You want to throw MTF at this until there's no one left? It's been █ years since we discovered it and we have confirmation of 93 personnel so far. That's only what we have fucking confirmed. Who knows how many people were brainwashed before it was first discovered? For all we know, it's thousands of people; the records of them are erased.

And we'll sacrifice twice as many if that's what it takes. We all knew what we were getting into when we signed up. No matter the cost, it will be contained.

We don't even know if this is a meme or cognitohazard or not. It's just speculation. Do we really want to screw with that?

On top of that, the -A we pulled out think we're Serpents hand or similar. They don't tell us anything.

Then we'll force the information out.

What, you want to torture them? We're not turning on our own personnel, 5.

It stopped being our personnel the minute they were exposed to it.

Idea: Possible exploration log found? Written documents about an earlier exploration?
