SCP-3673: The Void

Item #: SCP-3673

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to SCP-3673's nature, it cannot be transported to the nearest site. Instead, it is to be guarded at its location inside the basement of [REDACTED] with at least 4 guards stationed around it at all times. Because it is inside a well-constructed building that is no longer in use, no additional constructions are necessary other than a constant supply of air conditioning and a small containment chamber around SCP-3673 of 3 m x 3 m x 3 m are necessary. SCP-3673 is to be kept in a 5 m x 5 m x 5 m containment chamber with 25 cm thick steel walls and two airtight doors at the entrance. Activatable air conditioning is to be implanted within SCP-3673's containment chamber for whenever live test subjects are being used. If anyone is to try and enter SCP-3673's area of containment without permission, they are to be redirected to the nearest exit. If they attempt to defy such orders, they are to be detained immediately.

Whenever tests are being conducted on SCP-3673, all personnel are to be stationed at least 5 10 meters away from it and the current test subject. After a test is successfully completed, no tests are to be attempted until a full timespan of 48 hours has passed.

Description: SCP-3673 is a pitch-black void within space approximately 1 m x 1 m x 1 m that appears to be unaffected by gravity and external physical forces. Its body is constantly changing its shape but appears to have the same constant volume and all dimensions never go above 2 m or below 0.5 m in any direction.

SCP-3673 does not appear to be made of any form of matter because any light shown on it seems to be completely absorbed into its body. Any form of matter that makes direct contact with SCP-3673's body completely disappears. All traces of that matter are completely erased, even if it is attached to another object or person. If the matter is solid, then all parts of the solid object count as part of the matter touching SCP-3673.

Despite SCP-3673's current size, it has the ability to erase any amounts of matter at any time and whenever it erases any matter it seems to increase in size directly proportional to the density of the matter that is being erased. After exactly 48 hours (2 days) pass after SCP-3673 consumes any amount of matter, it instantly reverts back to its normal size. All attempts at reversing this form of erasure have proven to be unsuccessful.
