SCP-2189-F-1-32

项目编号 SCP-2189

项目等级 Safe Euclid Keter

特殊收容措施 Instances of SCP-2189-T are to be kept in the low-security greenhouses at Biological Containment Site-103, with temperature, humidity and soil resembling the native conditions of their biological counterparts. Instances of SCP-2189-F are to be harvested when ripe, and the metals recycled.
SCP-2189-T的实例将被保存在生化收容站Site-103的低安全度温室中,此处的温度,湿度与土壤都应与和它们相对应的生物的原生条件相近。SCP-2189-F的实例将在成熟时被收获,其中的金属将被回收。

特殊收容措施(于 █/█/██更新) Instances of SCP-2189-T are to be individually isolated in climate-controlled terraria at Bio Site-103. Temperature, humidity and soil resembling the native conditions of their biological counterparts are to be provided when instances of SCP-2189-F are required for research. At other times, a dormant state is to be induced. Class 6 hazmat procedures must be observed whenever entering the terraria or handling instances of SCP-2189-F.
SCP-2189-T的实例将被单独的隔离于气候受控的生化收容站Site-103。如果研究需要SCP-2189-F的实例,就可以提供与所对应生物的原生条件相似的温度、湿度和土壤。在其余时间,实例将处于诱导休眠的状态。无论何时,进入terraria或处理SCP-2189-F实例时都必须遵守第6类危险品程序。

Every 30 days, research staff are to collect dissection specimens from insect populations in the low-security greenhouses at Bio Site-103, as well as certain animal populations near SCP-2189's discovery site (see Document 2189-501 for details). Anomalous findings from dissection specimens are to be escalated to the Site Director.
每隔30天,研究人员就会在生化收容站Site-103的低安全温室中收集昆虫种群,以及在SCP-2189的发现地点附近的某些动物种群(详见文献2189-501)的解剖标本。于解剖标本中的异常发现将被递交给站点主管。

特殊收容措施(于 █/█/██更新) Revision of █/█/██ is to remain in effect. Instances of SCP-2189-C are to be kept in cold storage at Bio Site-103 except during active research. Approximately 60% of the land under which SCP-2189-X is located has been purchased by Foundation front companies, with the remainder located under ██████ State Forest, which has been brought under effective Foundation control through infiltration of relevant parks administration offices. Outpost-103-47 has been established in the area for observation and research. Locating PoI-2189-1 has been designated an Alpha-level priority.
█/█/██的修订版依然有效,除了在主动研究期间外,SCP-2189-C的实例将保存在生化收容站Site-103的冷藏库中。SCP-2189-X所处地区的大约60%的土地已被基金会的前台公司收购,其余位于██████国家公园的部分,则通过渗透入有关的公园管理办公室的方式使其处于基金会控制之下。在该地区已经建立了前哨-103-47用于监视与研究。定位PoI-2189-1的事项已被指定为alpha级优先级。

描述: SCP-2189 is the collective designation for three items superficially resembling specimens of Malus domestica (AKA an apple tree, designated SCP-2189-T-1), Vitis vinifera (AKA a common grape vine, designated SCP-2189-T-2) and Musa acuminata (AKA a banana plant, designated SCP-2189-T-3), as well as their associated fruit (designated SCP-2189-F-1, -2, and -3, respectively).
SCP-2189是对三种表面上类似Malus domestica(亦称苹果树,此处称为SCP-2189-T-1)、Vitis vinifera(亦称葡萄藤,此处称为SCP-2189-T-2)和Musa acuminata(亦称香蕉植株,此处称为SCP-2189-T-3)的标本以及相关的果实(分别称为SCP-2189-F-1,-2,和-3)的统称。

The bark, epidermis, and peels of SCP-2189 instances are indistinguishable from that of their non-anomalous counterparts, including genetically. However, in place of the expected internal structures are an intricate network of gears, springs, cams, and cranks. Removed components are indistinguishable from non-anomalous metals, mostly brass.
SCP-2189的树皮、表皮和果皮与它们所对应的的非异常生物(包括基因)难以区分。然而,代替应有的内部结构是一个复杂的包括齿轮,弹簧,凸轮和曲柄在内的网络。从中移除的部件与非异常金属难以区分,其主要成分为黄铜。

When its internal mechanisms are functioning, instances of SCP-2189-T respond to their environment similarly to their biological counterparts, except that they are always in growing season, and parts do not naturally senesce: leaves never change color and fall off, bark never sloughs off, and instances of SCP-2189-F remain attached indefinitely and do not become overripe.
当它的内部的机械结构运作时,SCP-2189-T的实例对环境的反应与它们的在生物学上所对应的生物类似,除了它们总是处于生长季节,并且拥有一些不会自然衰老的部分:树叶永远不会变色或不会脱落,树皮同样不会脱落,SCP-2189-F的实例也会无限期地附着在植株上,不会过度成熟。

SCP-2189-T instances have the same needs as their non-anomalous counterparts in terms of water, sunlight, and soil type. When deprived of these, the instance's internal mechanisms begin to slow, eventually stopping altogether under circumstances corresponding to severe malnutrition. If appropriate exposure to sunlight, water, and soil are resumed, the instance resumes functioning. The internal mechanisms of an SCP-2189-F instance will cease functioning if it is picked before ripe, or once it has been separated from the corresponding SCP-2189-T instance for about the same amount of time it would take its biological counterpart to spoil.
SCP-2189-T实例在水、阳光和土壤类型方面与非异常实例具有相同的需求。当这些条件不被满足时,该实例内部的机械运作将会开始减缓,最终在严重营养不良的情况下完全停止。如果适当地暴露在阳光、水和土壤中,实例将恢复其内部活动。如果一个SCP-2189-F实例在成熟之前被摘下,或是待成熟后摘下,放置与其生物学上所对应的生物的果实腐烂所需的时间后,其内部的机械将会停止运作。

Functioning instances of SCP-2189-F can be eaten and digested. Subjects report that the flavor and texture are typical of the type of fruit corresponding to the instance. Juices dripping from an SCP-2189-F instance incidental to being consumed are identical to non-anomalous counterparts.1 Mechanisms that are bitten through will continue their normal movement, with portions of the mechanism moving from the main mass to the bitten-off piece and back again, as if the mechanism were still intact. This spatial anomaly appears to continue on an increasingly small scale as SCP-2189-F pieces are further broken down in the mouth and digestive tract.
处于运作状态的SCP-2189-F实例可以被食用和消化。受试者报告说,它们的口味和质地是典型的与实例相对应的水果类型。从SCP-2189-F实例中流出的汁液与所对应的无异常水果完全相同。2被穿透的机械构件将继续它们的正常运作,机械的一部分从主体移动到被切下的部分,然后再回来,就好像机械仍然完好无损一样。随着SCP-2189-F颗粒在口腔和消化道的进一步分解,这种空间异常似乎在越来越小的范围内继续存在。

If the peel of an SCP-2189-F instance is removed, the mechanical interior will continue to function. However, if anything other than animal mouthparts penetrates deeper than the peel of an SCP-2189-F instance, the internal mechanisms of that instance will jam. Once this occurs, all portions of the instance will cease to function as fruit. The mechanisms can no longer be bitten through, and bites already taken will become indigestible. Consequent autopsies of animal and D-class test subjects identified either gastrointestinal trauma or copper toxicity as the cause of death, depending on the stage of digestion.
如果SCP-2189-F实例的外皮被移除,其内部的机械将继续工作。然而,若有任何除了动物口器以外的东西,并且它穿透的深度超过SCP-2189-F实例的外皮,则该实例的内部机械的运作将被阻塞。一旦发生这种情况,该实例的所有部分将停止作为水果的机能。这些机械不能再被咬穿,已经被咬过的也会变得无法消化。根据消化阶段,对动物和D级人员的尸检证实了胃肠损伤或铜中毒是死亡的原因。

附录1: One of the early test subjects of SCP-2189, D-51259, was subsequently assigned to be [REDACTED] for SCP-███, and consequently had her termination deferred by three months. When SCP-███ attempted to remove [REDACTED] D-51259 was given a detailed autopsy with biopsies of all tissues. This unusually thorough postmortem analysis was standard practice for all D-class who had been used to test SCP-2189, and the directive remained in D-51259's personnel file despite the fact that active testing of SCP-2189 had been concluded.
用于SCP-2189的早期实验的实验对象,D-51259,随后被指定为SCP-███的[已编辑],她的处决因此被延期三个月。当SCP-███试图移除[已编辑]时,D-51259被给予了一次详细的,涉及所有种类的组织的活体切片检查。这种异常彻底的事后分析是对所有的参与过SCP-2189实验的D级人员的惯例,尽管对SCP-2189的实验已经结束,这一指令依然保留在D-51259的人事档案中。

Microscopic brass gears were discovered in some samples of D-51259’s adipose and lymphatic tissue, and her liver was found to contain a cluster of five interlocked gears ranging in diameter from 0.1-0.4mm, the largest of which was attached to a 0.3mm-long camshaft. These structures were not found in D-class personnel who died during or shortly after testing of SCP-2189. Testing of SCP-2189 has resumed and a proposal to reclassify as Euclid is currently being drafted by the research team.
其中在D-51259的脂肪和淋巴组织的一些样本中发现了微小的铜齿轮,并且在她的肝脏中发现了一个直径为0.1-0.4mm的,由五个相互锁定的齿轮组成的齿轮组,其中最大的一个被连接到了一个长0.3mm的凸轮轴上。在SCP-2189测试期间或测试后不久死亡的d级人员中均未发现这些机械结构。对SCP-2189的测试已经恢复,研究小组目前正在起草一个将其重新分类为Euclid的提案。

附录2: Subsequent to SCP-2189's reclassification, Field Agents Dietrich and Harris conducted a review of public and police records to identify deaths and missing person cases potentially linked to SCP-2189. They flagged for investigation the disappearance of L███ R████, a retired aerospace engineer who lived in a cabin several miles from ██████ State Forest, where SCP-2189 was discovered.
在SCP-2189重新类事件之后,外勤特工Dietrich和Harris重新检查了公共和警察记录,以查明可能与SCP-2189有关的死亡和失踪人员案件。他们注意到了有关L███ R████,一位退休的航空航天工程师的失踪的调查。在失踪前他居住在离SCP-2189被发现的地方,即██████国家公园仅有数英里的小木屋中。

Upon entering R████'s home, the Agents discovered over three dozen clocks and watches. All of those that retained legible manufacturer markings were later identified as being of purely mechanical design, without electrical components. Approximately two dozen of the timepieces were found with their outer components (casings, faces, etc.) in a state of extreme corrosion inconsistent with their apparent date of manufacture and conditions of storage. These instances lacked internal components, and were covered in mold.
在进入R████的家后,特工们发现了数量超过三打的钟表。那些保留了清晰的制造商标志的钟表后来被确定均为纯粹的机械结构,不含电子元件。大约有24个钟表的外部部件(外壳、表面等部位)处于与实际上的制造日期和储存条件不一致的严重腐蚀状态。这些实例缺少内部组件,并被包裹在霉菌中。

Fourteen instances were found in R████'s deep freeze. These instances had uncorroded exteriors, and contained a multicolored biological material later identified as a patchwork of various tissues found in Malus domestica, Vitis vinifera, and Musa acuminata. These instances were found to be keeping accurate time despite their lack of internal mechanisms.
有14个实例在R████的冰箱中被发现。这些实例的表面未被腐蚀,并且含有一种多彩的生物材料,这些材料后来被鉴定为来自Malus domestica(苹果), Vitis vinifera(葡萄), 和Musa acuminata(香蕉)的各种组织的拼凑物。尽管缺少内部的机械结构,这些实例所显示的时间依然准确。

Agents also confiscated numerous hand-written notebooks containing diagrams and arrays of symbols. Analysis of the notebooks has been hindered by mold damage, but the legible portion of the text includes common equations from mechanical engineering with unidentified symbols inserted in place of various constants.
特工们还没收了许多手写的笔记本,里面有图表和含有符号的数组。对笔记本内容的分析一直受到霉菌所带来的损坏的阻碍,但文本中可读的部分包含了机械工程中的常见方程,其中插入了一些无法识别的符号来代替各种常数。

The timepieces have been designated SCP-2189-C, and L███ R████ has been designated Person of Interest 2189-1.
这些钟表被指定为SCP-2189-C,L███ R████则被指定为PoI-2189-1。

附录3: Agents Dietrich and Harris interviewed several of PoI-2189-1's superiors and coworkers at ██████ Aeronautics, where he was employed for 32 years. PoI-2189-1 appears to have been socially isolated and regarded as increasingly eccentric during the final years of his employment. He was reportedly pushed into retirement when he began talking openly about the "engineering applications" of various occult practices, most frequently “sacred geometry and geography."
特工Dietrich和Harris采访了数个与PoI-2189-1共事了32年的同事与上司。PoI-2189-1在其职业生涯的最后几年中似乎一直与社会相隔绝,并被认为变得越来越古怪。据说他在公开谈论各种神秘实践的“工程应用”,其中最频繁的是“神圣几何学与地理学”时,被迫退休。

Agents also interviewed the individual who initially reported PoI-2189-1 missing, his nephew and next of kin J███ H████. H████ claims to have been the only visitor to PoI-2189-1's cabin after PoI-2189-1 retired there, and that PoI-2189-1 spent the past several years constructing an “elaborate contraption covered in drawings." H████ states that he actively avoided discussion of PoI-2189-1's occult interests, and is unable to provide useful details about the alleged apparatus or PoI-2189-1's activities during this time, other than that PoI-2189-1 claimed several times to have selected the location of the cabin for reasons of “sacred geometry and geography.”
特工们同样采访了最初报告PoI-2189-1失踪的人,即他的侄子与近亲J███ H████。H████声称自己是在PoI-2189-1退休后唯一拜访过他的小屋的人,而PoI-2189-1在过去的数年间于此处建设一个“复杂精巧的装置的图纸”。H████坚称他一般积极避免谈及PoI-2189的超自然兴趣,并且无法提供有用的,有关所谓的装置或是PoI-2189-1在这段时间中的活动的细节,除了有几次PoI-2189-1曾提及小屋的选址是基于“神圣几何学和地理学”。

Researchers conducted a thorough geological survey of the property. Subterranean mapping of the area was hampered when standard GPR3 was unable to produce clear output. A [[REDACTED]] system was employed, which identified a metallic sphere approximately ██ m in diameter, buried at a depth of ███ m, and connected by a curved shaft to a much larger object at the limit of the [[REDACTED]]'s range. Probing of the surrounding region was conducted under cover of a study by the U.S. Geological Survey, and the central mass was found to be connected to similar spheres as far away as ██████, ranging in diameter from ██ m to 0.█ km. The overall structure of the object resembles an orrery, buried in a vertical orientation roughly along the line of latitude at ██°██' N.
研究人员对这一地区进行了一次彻底的地质调查。当标准的GPR4无法产生清晰的输出结果时,对地下结构的绘图遭到了阻碍。

A mineral exploration drilling rig with diamond drill bits successfully penetrated the sphere closest to the surface and extracted a core sample. The interior layers consisted of tissues found in disparate human body parts, including layers made of heart muscle, tendons, and neurons. The outer shell was found to be brass. The structure has been designated SCP-2189-X.

Surveillance of J███ H████ produced the following recovered voicemail, received █/█/██5 and deleted the same day, apparently left by PoI-2189-1 in a state of inebriation:

It works, Johnny-boy! It works. Every part of it works. I did as tough a test as I could think of short of the real thing. Complex systems, groups of, you know, groups of complex systems, one of the earth and one clean and mechanical, matching the [unintelligible] function versus structure, and it all fell into place, like clockwork, perfectly engineered! Smooth and perfect! You do the right things, and the right things will happen! You can't laugh at the rules of the universe like some political middle manager bullshitter [unintelligible] and expect to get away with it! It's not a theory, it's not hoodoo, it's sacred geometry and geography! [laughs] I really wish you were here to see it. Oh, I know you think I'm crazy too, Johnny-boy, but you've been the only one to stand by me, and I want you to know that in the world to come, you and Sherry will be protected. You'll sit at my right hand. The Sleeping King will never wake up, Johnny-boy. I will.

Further invasive testing of SCP-2189-X was prohibited and SCP-2189 upgraded to Keter by order of O5-█.

I don't need to tell you that we got caught with our pants down on this one, or that we might well have remained in the dark for far longer if an accidental discovery hadn't forced you to take a second look at SCP-2189. The simple step of assigning Agents to investigate the SCP's origins at the time of containment could have been a real game-changer.

Instead, SCP-2189 spent critical months mis-classified as Safe, with no one looking into it, because no one in Site-103's chain of command – not your project head, not your director of research, and not you – thought that it might be worthwhile to study the long-term effects of eating an SCP. That kind of incurious attitude is the exact opposite of what we pay researchers for. And your claim that you couldn't assign investigative resources until SCP-2189 was reclassified as Euclid won't fly. You have a discretionary budget for precisely this reason.

We still don't know exactly what R████ did, whether he got what he wanted, or for that matter whether the effects of his little dress rehearsal are still working their way up the food chain in █████ and your own Site's greenhouses. What we do know for certain is that we gave him a three-month head start. In light of these events, I've decided your talents would be better utilized elsewhere in the organization. You are relieved of your duties as Site Director, effective immediately.

Entrance to SCP-3983 central cavern. Note flash of light produced by SCP-3983-03 disappearance.

Item #: SCP-3983

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Due to its remote location, physical containment of SCP-3983 is unnecessary. Oceanic survey organizations will be monitored by Naval Task Force Sigma-58 “Bottomfeeders” for indication of any planned expeditions near SCP-3983's location.

Description: SCP-3983 is a cave, the entrance of which is approximately 10,800 meters below the surface of the southern Pacific Ocean, in the Horizon Deep of the Tonga Trench. SCP-3983 was initially discovered by the crew of a manned NOAA expedition. Administrative reports of its discovery were flagged by Foundation webcrawlers, whereupon amnestics were distributed to exposed individuals, and jurisdiction of SCP-3983 was transferred to the Foundation.

The cave entrance is a narrow crack in the trench wall roughly 2.5 meters wide at its widest point. Within, a passage extends into the rock, gradually angling upward at an average elevation of 12° for approximately 200 meters. At this point, the passage terminates, and enters an air-filled chamber roughly 75 meters wide.

At the center of this chamber is a dais, made of stone bricks, rising 1 meter from the ground and roughly 15 meters in diameter. The left and right walls of the chamber are decorated with complex high-relief sculptures, seemingly carved directly from the rock of the cave wall.

The left scene depicts a thin humanoid figure, draped in rags. Across this figure's shoulders is slung a large admiralty-pattern anchor, roughly as long as the figure is tall (≈3 meters), with angular flukes. The figure is slightly hunched, presumably due to the weight of the implement it bears. Its face is obscured by a hooded cowl. The area around this central figure is carved into simple swirling patterns, likely depicting the presence of wind or ocean waves. An as-yet undecipherable inscription in rongorongo glyphs is carved into the wall above the relief. This piece is designated SCP-3983-01.

The right scene is highly complex and detailed. It consists of an array of biological structures, however its specific form is difficult to determine. Distinct elements include tentacles, crustacean claws, insect legs, barnacles, coral, antlers, and what appear to be portions of the human skeleton, including spines, limbs, and skulls. These elements are presented apparently at random, and while there is a suggestion of a central mass of some kind, its specific makeup is unclear. An inscription in Akkadian cuneiform above the relief reads "SHE WHO BIRTHS AND DEVOURS ALL, WHO SOWS AND HARVESTS, WHO GRANTS SICKNESS AND HEALTH. SHE WHO IS WITHOUT REST." This piece is designated SCP-3983-02.

The rear wall of the chamber is obscured, due to the presence of a mound of human corpses, piled to the height of the ceiling (≈7 meters). These corpses exhibit varying degrees of decomposition; some show no outward signs of decay, others are essentially skeletal.

Once each day, at a time roughly coinciding with sunrise respective to the surface above the Horizon Deep, one corpse will spontaneously animate and extricate itself from the pile, whereupon it is designated SCP-3983-03. This occasionally takes a significant amount of time, dependent upon the location of the corpse within the pile. Once separate from the pile, the corpse will stand, and ascend the steps to the stone dais to stand in the center. If the SCP-3983-03 instance does not have functioning legs, it will crawl and attain as upright a posture as possible.

Once in the center of the dais, the corpse will speak. The content of this speech is always intelligible, even if the corpse in question possesses no vocal cords or tongue.

Upon the completion of its statement, the corpse will vanish, whereupon one of the two sculptures will exhibit a physical reaction. Foundation autonomous naval observation drone (ANOD) 06 captured several instances of this event; example transcripts follow.

Date Description of Subject Content of Speech Results
04 April, 2010 Overweight female, significant putrefaction evident. Scarring present on subject's abdomen and upper extremities. “All my life, I worked hard. I never stopped working. I let myself be fucked by a bastard, and I bore his children. And I loved them. I loved them and I raised them the best I could, but I didn't have any help. And it weighed. I lost my way. In the end, I didn't love them enough, didn't try hard enough. And I fell trying to seek relief. I failed. And I won't do it again. I choose to make use of myself. I accept the burden.” Subject vanishes, producing a flash of blue light. A significant amount of condensation gathers on SCP-3983-01's surface, and runs to the chamber floor in rivulets.
13 May, 2010 Tall, thin male. Little evidence of decomposition save for a paleness of the skin. “I did not choose my vocation to squander my own existence. My allegiance is to life, and its perpetuation. I have sewn flesh, set bones, and cured ailments. I am not prepared to allow us to fall into stagnation. We have to be strong, and healthy, even if that means we have to accept terrible changes. I am not a coward, and I will not submit. I choose to fight forever. I will never rest.” Subject vanishes, producing a flash of green light. Vines superficially resembling Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) sprout from SCP-3983-02's surface, then rapidly decompose and crumble.
08 July, 2010 Tall, broad-shouldered male. Mild decomposition. Multiple tattoos across upper arms and chest. “Fuck that. I never let anyone walk on me, ever. I'm not getting brought into another stupid fucker gang of pussies just out to make trouble for everyone else. I had my fun. It's time for me to do the right thing for once, like my mama wanted. Not wasting this shot. Not this time. I'm the strongest bastard ever born, and you're gonna love me. Get ready, bitches. Manny Marquez accepts the burden.” Subject vanishes, producing a flash of blue light accompanied by a sound similar to the cry of the king vulture (Sarcoramphus papa). SCP-3983-01's posture changes slightly, adjusting its anchor to stand more upright.
02 June, 2010 Short female, specific characteristics difficult to determine due to advanced decomposition. Subject estimated to have been dead no less than one year. “I was never anything. I only knew pain and hatred. I want a chance. I will give back what was given to me. I will never rest.” Subject vanishes, producing a flash of green light. Blood manifests and collects across SCP-3983-02's surface, gradually congealing and drying.
17 July, 2010 Small skeleton, presumed to be the remains of a child aged 5-6. None. Subject stands in the center of the dais and emits no sound, holding its arms close to its ribcage and shivering. First instance of overt animation from SCP-3983-01 and SCP-3983-02. SCP-3983-02 extends a tentacle toward subject. SCP-3983-01 quickly dislodges from its recess, and advances upon the dais. SCP-3983-01 swings its anchor into SCP-3983-02's tentacle, shattering it into pieces. A roaring sound approximately 140 dB in volume is heard, rattling the chamber and causing ANOD-06's microphones to temporarily cut out. SCP-3983-01 stands between subject and SCP-3983-02, slamming its anchor head-down upon the surface of the platform. No activity for 46 seconds, whereupon subject vanishes, producing a flash of blue light. SCP-3983-01 raises an arm and points at SCP-3983-02 for a short period of time, before shouldering its weapon and placing itself back into its recess, in identical configuration as before.
27 November, 2010 Short male, advanced decomposition. Significant damage evident, including lacerations upon its abdomen and limbs and multiple broken ribs. “I will make my own way.” See Incident Report 3983-01.

Investigation is currently underway to determine the significance of these events. A sortie to establish meaningful contact with SCP-3899 has been initiated to determine the extent of its involvement.
