Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid


Symbol Reconstruction Format of SCP-XXXX-1. By connecting segments at same-color marks, SCP-XXXX-1 can be recreated. Image scanned on ██/██/07

Special Containment Procedures: All forms of SCP-XXXX are to be stored in Symbol Reconstruction Format (see below) on a private digital server. This server is to be connected to a set of continuous stationery laser printers. These printers are each dedicated to the containment of a single instance of SCP-XXXX. The printers should be inspected daily, with special care taken to ensure each printer is fully stocked on ink and continuous stationery paper.

Each printer is attached to a specialized scanner. Every .25 seconds, the scanner checks the contained instance of SCP-XXXX for changes from its previous state. If there are any discrepancies found, the incident is recorded and the printer automatically printers a replacement of that SCP-XXXX instance.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a collection of symbols that grant anomalous properties to any object they are drawn or carved upon. When a physical recreation of SCP-XXXX is finalized, all visual representations of the instance (including digital images on databases) are replaced by with a smudge. These symbols are currently known by various Groups of Interest, but they cannot effectively utilize the objects that are currently under Foundation watch without automated containment protocols detecting the event and erasing the instance.

It is known there are at least ██ uncontained instances of SCP-XXXX [See recovery log XXXX]. Unless noted otherwise, SCP-XXXX instances stop applying anomalous effects when removed from an object. Currently contained instances are as follows:

  • SCP-XXXX-1 grants objects anomalous physical properties. The object effectively acts with two different masses: one for the purposes of accelerating and one for decelerating. Effected objects accelerate as normal, but decelerate as though they have 1/5 the mass. This violation of inertia greatly reduces the energy transfer in impacts. How the physics of acceleration and deceleration are differentiated by SCP-XXXX-1 is unknown.
  • SCP-XXXX-2 turns the object into a cognitive projection. If SCP-XXXX-2 is on an object when a person touches it, the object will cease to exist, and manifest as a persistent hallucination inside the person's mind, accompanied by a sense of melancholy that increases with the weight of the object. When another copy of SCP-XXXX-2 is created, the mental object appears somewhere within 2 meters of the previous carrier. No long term psychological harm has been found from the process.
  • SCP-XXXX-3 The object grows eye-stalks and begins secreting slime, but does not gain sentience. If applied to a living organism, that organism also [REDACTED] over the course of 2-3 hours. This is fatal in ██% of cases.

Notice: Since containment, additional instances of SCP-XXXX have been recovered. See Extended Log-XXXX for instance notes and Addendum 06/30/08 for further details. This document has been left in its original form for archival reasons.

Addendum ██/██/08: During a test, both SCP-XXXX-2 and SCP-XXXXX-3 were applied to a single object. The resulting cognitive object is capable of simple autonomous behavior with respect to the host's imaginary or perceived environments. The entity resists mental commands from the host, but is still subject to the imagined laws of the host's mental world. When the object is ejected from the mind, it is restored to its original state. This experiment confirms the existence of interactions between various SCP-XXXX instances, and permission to begin further testing is pending on the approval of Director ██████. More information in Extended Log-XXXX(link goes here)

Addendum 06/30/08: A new instance of SCP-XXXX has been discovered thanks to the efforts of Dr. Kramer and Jr. Researcher Creech. This instance has be titled SCP-XXXX-4, and all data involved with its creation has been stored. Details of SCP-XXXX-4 can be found in Extended Log-XXXX(link goes here).

Notice: Because all XXXX instances hold different properties, each instance is, for the purpose of classified information rules, a unique SCP object (ie, viewing an XXXX instance file you are not cleared for is equivalent to viewing an object file you do not have clearance for). As of 07/03/08 the original SCP-XXXX document will not be updated with further information about XXXX instances in following with this rule. A specialized classification system has been designed for XXXX instances, based on their properties and containment needs.

XXXX-#: 1
Instance Source: Unknown
Instance Class: Stable
Breach Rate: 0.06935
Description: XXXX-1 grants objects unique spacial properties relating to inertia. Objects under the effects of XXXX-1 quickly lose momentum relative to their current reference frame, and collide with objects with significantly less force. Tests have shown this effect reduces the cutting ability of knives, the penetration ability of bullets, and the bounce height of rubber balls, but increases the height delicate objects can fall before shattering.

XXXX-#: 2
Instance Source: Unknown
Instance Class: Stable
Breach Rate: 3.23341
Description: XXXX-2 allows an object to enter a metaphysical, cognitive state. If an XXXX-2 affected object is touched by a sapient organism, it will cease its physical existence and take on the form of a cognitive construct. The object may manifest in both imagined worlds and as a hallucination in the physical world, and is wholly subject to the will of the carrier. Whether the object is expelled by choice of the carrier or by removing XXXX-2 from it is inconsequential, as the object always appears within 2 meters of the carrier physically unchanged. Sentients and digital recording devices that enter a carrier retain memory of this time period.

XXXX-2 affected objects create negative emotions in the carrier, with heavier objects creating more negative emotions. Individuals carrying over 50kg of materials in this manner are considered high-risk for suicidal actions until the cognitive object is removed.

XXXX-#: 3
Instance Source: Unknown
Instance Class: Stable
Breach Rate: 0.02056
Description: XXXX-3
