SCP-XXXX-1 prior to containment in its "STANDBY" status

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept in an opaque storage container in standard storage area at site-██. A specially prepared traffic light controller box designated SCP-XXXX-2G is placed in research area 1-XXXX. While not connected to SCP-XXXX-1 SCP-XXXX-2 can be considered non-anomalous. Taking SCP-XXXX out of its storage for testing requires permission from 1 (one) researcher with clearence level of at least 3/XXXX or above.

During testing it is imperative to monitor the energy input of SCP-XXXX-2 and to maintain a connection at all times, if connection is severed SCP-XXXX-1 will enter "BROKEN" status. all D-class personell in the research area during "BROKEN" status are to be terminated. The automatic cognitohazard filtering system will close the shutters on the observation window when SCP-XXXX-1 is in "BROKEN" status. Any research personell viewing SCP-XXXX-1 from the observation deck during "BROKEN" status is to be considered MIA, if recovered they are to be amnesticized with Class-A Amnestics and transmitted to work on a different project.

Any personell aside from D-class viewing SCP-XXXX-1 while in "GO" STANDBY" or "STOP" (further reffered to as active) status for more than 1 (one) minute without eye protection specially treated to protect against the effects of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be removed from the research area and administered a class-A amnestic, then reassigned to another project. D-class exposed to active SCP-XXXX-1 for more than a minute are to be psychologically monitored for long-term exposure symptoms. D-class exposed to active SCP-XXXX-1 for more than 10 (ten) minutes are to be isolated, monitored for long term effects and either amnesticized with class-C Amnestics (targeted at all memories related to traffic lights) or terminated.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a vertical three-position traffic light recovered from the city of ████████, Poland. SCP-XXXX-1 Features three round spotlights, designated SCP-XXXX-1A (red) , 1B (yellow) and 1C (green) respectively. Originally it was attached to a standard traffic light pole and plugged into ████████'s traffic control system (During time of recovery designated SCP-XXXX-2A). More information related to the recovery of SCP-XXXX-1 can be found in addendum XXXX.1

SCP-XXXX-2 is any device capable of controlling traffic lights currently connected to SCP-XXXX-1. When connected he device is rendered anomalous, and has no known limit of possible voltage apllied, the cable connecting SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 (named SCP-XXXX-3) is rendered superconductive for the duration of the connection. Once the connection is severed, all anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX-2 and SCP-XXXX-3 dissapear once disconnected.

SCP-XXXX-1 is operated via anomalous electric signals sent to it by the current iteration of SCP-XXXX-2. Different voltage applied to SCP-XXXX-2 corresponds to projection of anomalous signals to SCP-XXXX-1 and activation of different spotlights on SCP-XXXX-1: ██ Volts to activate SCP-XXXX-1A, ███ Volts to activate SCP-XXXX-1B and ██████ Volts to activate SCP-XXXX-1C. When a voltage lower than ██ is applied SCP-XXXX-1 will alternate between lit spotlights in a fashion correct to polish law. Application of a non-static, or not applying a current at all while SCP-XXXX-1 is connected into SCP-XXXX-2 will cause SCP-XXXX-1 to enter "BROKEN" status. Not applying a voltage while SCP-XXXX-1 is disconnected from SCP-XXXX-2 will cause it to enter its inactive status

The possible combinations of the lights are as follows

SCP-XXXX-1A, SCP-XXXX-1B and SCP-XXXX-1C are all offline: Inactive status

SCP-XXXX-1A is lit: "STOP" status

SCP-XXXX-1B is lit: "STANDBY" status

SCP-XXXX-1C is lit: "GO" status

SCP-XXXX-1B is blinking: "BROKEN" status

Other light combinations can be acquired, but are proven to have no anomalous effects, any combination or status not listed is considered Invalid and has the same effects as Inactive

SCP-XXXX-1 primary effect manifests when a human views SCP-XXXX-1 during any of its valid states, aside from inactive. The effect is a memetic phenomenon that causes alteration in behavior while SCP-XXXX-1 is viewed.
SCP-XXXX-1's secondary effect manifests only after constant exposure longer than 1 (one) minute, it shows itself in form of long term psychological alterations
The exact effects of SCP-XXXX-1 on humans are: [DATA EXPUNGED]1

Fundation research has revealed a way to counteract the cognitohazardous effects of SCP-XXXX-12 by running the light produced by it through transparent materials of a specific coloration and refractive index. These materials have been designated SCP-XXXX-1A' 1B' and 1C', and counteract the effects of their respective lights. Security and research staff entering the SCP-XXXX research area is obligated to wear specially treated eyewear containing material 1A' 1B' and 1C'. Additionally the window to the observation deck of the research chamber has been treated to display 1A' 1B' and 1C' properties
