Placeholder Image (Final Image will say "Picture of a film photgraph of SCP-XXXX")

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a alloyed tungsten lockbox no more than 30 centimeters in width and 23 centimeters in length.

All personnel at Site-█ are to be screened for symptoms of major depressive disorder, schizophrenia, paranoia and psychosis. Under no circumstances are personnel that already display these symptoms are allowed to be within 100 meters of SCP-XXXX.

Every month, a D-Class personnel with an IQ lower than 65, is to clean SCP-XXXX using a dry cloth and no water.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a spherical object of unknown origin and composition, roughly 8 centimeters in diameter. SCP-XXXX has a rough texture, similar to that of rock. The object is of a dark gray color, but matches no stone known. The material SCP-XXXX consists of deflects many types of instruments used to further research or test the object. (See testing logs)

SCP-XXXX displays no anomalous properties until it is within 3 meters of someone who SCP-XXXX perceives of possessing an above-average intellect1. When the subject is within the distance and SCP-XXXX is not in its case, it begins to vibrate at a low amplitude and moderate frequency, causing the subject to perceive a humming from SCP-XXXX. This effect is only observed by the subject. Tungsten alloyed with cobalt, iron and nickel block the illusory effects.

If the subject has physical contact with SCP-XXXX, the cognitohazardous effects activate and the subject enters stage 1. The time after a stage starts and another begins is highly predictable (with the exception of stage 1), but there have been exceptions.

In stage 1, the subject feels cold and uneasy when in proximity to foundation personnel assigned to SCP-XXXX2. The subject has shown heightened adrenaline when in physical contact with another human, and signs of fear when in contact with personnel assigned to SCP-XXXX. After an unpredictable amount of time, the subject enters stage 2.

Once stage 2 is active, the subject begins to show a large distrust to foundation personnel and signs of impeded communication skills, remaining silent in free time. Subjects have been observed to try and cope with an unknown source of mental trauma. Stage 3 begins at approximately 10 days after stage 2 initiates.

Stage 3 has been observed to cause fevers in the subjects. The subjects begin to repeat phrases and have been reported to talking to themselves. At this point, subjects are to remain in their quarters, or any authorized holding area. Subjects begin to use hostile vocabulary against those assigned to SCP-XXXX, often judging them for how they treat the SCPs in the facility. Stage 4 begins 5 days after stage 3 begins.

At stage 4, the subject mutters about how SCP-XXXX wants to be understood. Subjects have been caught talking to nothing, or darting eyes occasionally. At this stage, the subject is paranoid about the foundation. Subjects refuse to cooperate and are only able to be questioned when injected with [REDACTED].

Stage 4 subjects report hallucinations and claim to see visions. Subjects begin to feverently try to research SCP-XXXX and repeat that it just wants to be seen. Subjects have made illustrations (See addendum) portraying SCP-XXXX and hallucinations.

After 35 days in stage 4, the subject digs their fingers into their eyeballs and chests, dying of blood loss. If restrained before the subject manages to properly commit suicide, the subject will constantly resist and attempt to harm personnel, leading in termination. Mental or chemical effects will no longer calm the subject.
