Object Name: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is currently contained in a 30 by 30 meter standard anomalous object holding cell directly in its place of discovery in █████, Ohio. Its cell is to be retrofitted with reinforced concrete that is to be inspected for cracks or holes every 30 days. All researchers wishing to enter SCP-XXXX’s containment cell have at least level 3 credentials and must wear foundation-made Looking-Glass camera glasses. Glasses are to be replaced and inspected for damage once every 30 days. Exiting personnel must be tested for adverse effects and pass a basic psych evaluation. Exiting D-class are to be terminated unless deemed unnecessary by a level 4 researcher or above.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a sphere of no discernable color or volume hovering through unknown means 1 meter above the ground. Its size changes constantly, but this peception is only viewable through a camera lense or camera feed. Directly viewing SCP-XXXX for up to 2 minutes will cause the viewer to develop symptoms extreme Macropsia and Micropsia (Also known as “Alice in Wonderland Syndrome”) and will cause the viewer to see a static image of SCP-XXXX. This anomaly is known as SCP-XXXX-2. Test subjects described the feeling as incredibly disorientating, most viewers falling to the ground, losing depth perceptions, and in 1% of cases experiencing minor seizures. Subjects with poor eyesight were able to withstand SCP-XXXX’s effects for up to 30 more seconds than subjects. The effect is described as “having everything bouncing up and down towards your eyes at once.”, and “The walls looked like they were closing in, and then they were miles away. A hundred times a minute.” Subjects with Claustrophobia or Agoraphobia have experienced “sharp, red-hot pain” located in the eyes or forhead in 98% of cases when affected by SCP-XXXX. In 91% of cases the viewer will experience extreme lightheadedness. After 4 minutes the symptoms vanish and are replaced with a desire to measure SCP-XXXX-2. The subject will utilize the most useful and easiest means necessary to them to measure what they perceive as SCP-XXXX-2. This usually means palms, fingers, body-lengths, and on 2 occasions, hair lengths. After the measuring is complete the subject will feel an immense feeling of justification, satisfaction, and euphoria. This effect lasts anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes and is correlated to how long the subject took to correctly measure the anomaly. (Longer time to measure causing longer but less extreme effects. Shorter measuring time causing more extreme effects for a shorter period.) After the euphoria has dissipated the Macropsia and Micropsia syndromes will return. Subjects will usually develop a form of Claustro or Agoraphobia within 5 days of viewing SCP-XXXX. These effects will continue until the subject expires. This does not affect viewer’s physical health, but is incredibly destructive towards their mental health. Antimemetics and Amnesiac drugs have little to no effect on the disorder. It is hypothesized that the anomaly changes the and ocular nerves directly, though no evidence of this has been found in autopsies.

Head Researcher Notes: The 05 council sent an official request to terminate all D-Class study on SCP-XXXX as it has deemed excessively inhumane and unnecessary. None of the past subjects even reached 14 days without going insane or committing suicide after viewing it. There has been ██ accounts of suicide and █ homicides. -Dr. Cricket
