SCP-3991. (The Great Attractor)

*[BEGIN LOG]*

Item number: SCP-3991

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: While SCP-3991 cannot be contained, it is prohibited for any and all individuals to listen to 3991’s “broadcasts” for more than 10 minutes at a time, or 10 paragraphs per broadcast due to it’s hostile anomalous effects. If any personnel are found listening to this, without the permission of Level-4 personnel or higher, the individual responsible will be subject to disciplinary punishment, or possible termination. Any and all public satellites that receive SCP-3128’s transmissions must be located, and their database cleaned. If not addressed in time, major population centers can, and will fall into anarchy.

Anomalous effects manifest after █ months of auditory contact. However this may vary depending on the time exposure. These effects are mainly extreme hostility, anarchistic behavior, and the urge to scream taoist scriptures at the top of their lungs. If the subject is not properly pacified, they will continue to scream the scriptures until their lungs are shredded, or they pass out due exhaustion. Even when the subject’s lungs are shredded, they will continue to attempt audible speech.

Description: SCP-3991 is a group of SuperMassive black holes listed as SCP 3991-A thru SCP 3991-Z. Currently located near “The Galactic Avoidance Zone”. Before it’s Anomalous Effects were confirmed, SCP 3128’s gravitational influence was shown to be pulling several galactic clusters towards it. This includes, but is not exclusive to the following:

  • The Centaurus Cluster
  • The Antlia Cluster
  • The Hydra Cluster
  • The NGC 5846 Cluster
  • The Virgo Cluster

Note as previously stated that there are several more unlisted clusters being drawn towards the item. These black holes orbit around one much larger sentient Supermassive black hole, which calls itself “The Great Attractor”. The center black hole acts as the brain of a hive mind, which can also speak in almost any language, including █████ dead languages. The broadcasts that SCP-3991 sent to earth, have been sent to all neighboring clusters. It is believed that the broadcasts originated as audio waves, which would have been █████ times louder than █████ . While the details cannot be retold without anomalous effects manifesting, the dialogue appears to be a mix of Taoist scripture, with detectable amounts of Shakespearean. The messages are believed to have taken .5 Billion light years to reach our solar system. “If that thing were a billion light years closer to us, we could've █████ “
-Dr: █████. It is currently unknown how these audio waves were converted to radio waves. More research is underway.

On 11/6 ███ The O5-Council hesitantly agreed to send an expedition of 30 foundation personnel, 15 MTF personnel, and 5 Class D which specialize(d) in astronomy, and quantum mechanics to the location of SCP-3991. The shuttle was outfitted with the same technology used in previous Foundation expeditions. This also includes specialized armour which would protect the shuttle from possible shockwaves of █████ or higher. In other cases it could sustain over █████ Decibels of volume. On 4/8/███ The shuttle left earth’s atmosphere, and activated it’s thrusters, exiting the solar system, and passing the Oort cloud in a matter of ████.

After ██ months of travel, the shuttle left the Milky Way, continuing onto SCP-3991’s location. Over a period of approximately ████ , and ██ months, the expedition arrived approximately 100 light days within SCP-3991’s location.

The following is an interview between Agent █████, and Dr █████ , Lead researcher of Expedition 3991-1.

Dr: █████ : Right. So we had finally made audible contact with the object. We immediately noticed as we passed several globular clusters, smaller galaxies, and a gas giant or two, that the smaller black holes began emitting some kind of qasar. It wasn't aimed at us, necessarily. But it went directly over us, and slammed into a much smaller galaxy. From what we observed, there were approximately ██ of them firing directly at it. It took around ██ hours for the quasars to hit their target. Destroyed it almost instantaneously. The entire thing collapsed, Debris went everywhere. Felt like we were in Star Wars, or something. It wasn't some kind of accident, either. Even as the smaller ones were orbiting the larger one, they hit directly in the center of the galaxy.

Agent █████ : And what happened then?

Dr: █████ : We immediately began sending the radio waves towards each of the black holes. Took around ██ hours for the signals to reach. After that, the quasars had stopped firing, and everything seemed to stop. I'm not joking, either. Everything stopped moving. Our ship was stuck in place for nearly ██ days. After that, we had started receiving an early warning system alert for an incoming massive shockwave.

Agent █████ : Go on..

Dr █████ Hesitates.

Dr: █████ : We were braced for impact for god knows how long. One of the MTF personnel, Agent █████ got up to check if it was just glitch. Tried to warn him to get back down, but as soon as he had gotten out of his seat, the shockwave hit. We went flying at ██ the speed of a bullet. Poor bastard probably broke every bone in his body. Crushed his skull against an air-tight door. No one had even noticed him because..

Agent █████ : Because..?

Dr: █████ : There was a voice. It █████ spoke to us. It heard the transmissions of it’s old broadcasts. It said in this really, and I mean really, deep voice: “Who interrupts the holy visage of the true messenger, brought to restore order upon this corrupted universe?”. It echoed, and echoed. The hull violently shook for some time.

Agent █████ : How long?

Dr: █████ : I-I can't remember. Everyone’s ears were ringing. Some poor kid with my research team went temporarily deaf. Had to put him in the medbay with the deceased MTF guy. All of our audio devices were destroyed. All but one. We had dents and scrapes all over the hull, and to this day I have absolutely no goddamn idea how it managed to do so much damage. One thing I noticed was that everything was still in place. A while after that, we stabilize the ship, and hastily sent out more transmissions.

Agent █████ finishes writing down his notes.

Agent █████ : Thank you, Dr █████ . You may go.

At this point, Dr █████ exits the room.

Agent █████ : I want him under security surveillance for the next 24 hours. Though we debugged him, I want to make sure he is passive. I will now continue by playing the audio interview between SCP-3991.

WARNING. The following is an interview between Dr █████ , and SCP-3991. Though the anomalous effects of the object’s broadcasts have been pacified, all personnel listening must report to the nearest medical facility as soon as this broadcast ends. No Exceptions.
