Item #: SCP-1727

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-1727 is to be stored in Area-38 under a room with coded security panel. No personnel are permitted to enter SCP-1727 without level-4 clearance and appropriate communications device. Before any explorations of SCP-1727, psychological counseling and briefing is required (Refer to FO1727 in the psychological diagnostics handbook). All explored regions are contained within the 1727 Index in the SCP-1727 file.

Note that further use of class-D personnel for any further explorations is strictly prohibited.

Description:
SCP-1727 is a metallic door and associated frame, approximately 2.3 meters tall and 1 meter wide. The door, as far as has been observed, will only permit human beings to enter. Humans who previously entered SCP-1727, lifeforms that are not human, objects, and robotic devices which attempt to enter SCP-1727 are met with a strong repelling force. Once entered and the door shut, it will disappear, and the subject will find themselves within a pocket dimension consisting of a straight hallway of seemingly infinite length flanked with ornate chestnut doors and a pair of gas lights on each side, each set of lights and doors spaced approximately 3 meters from each other. Where the subject materializes within this plane is random. Doors in the hallway arbitrarily stuck shut and attempting to force one open will only reveal a wall.

Each door holds emblazoned with a plaque holding a unique base-26 number and the following message:
TERMS OF VISITATION

  1. TO RETURN TO THIS HALLWAY IMAGINE YOURSELF OPENING THIS DOOR AGAIN
  2. AFTER EXPLORING SEVEN DOORS ONLY THOSE YOU HAVE ENTERED SHALL REMAIN OPEN FOR YOU
  3. IF YOUR STAY LASTS UNTIL THE NEXT SUNRISE THERE IS NO RETURNING

Persons in SCP-1727 do not experience physical need, are immune to physical harm, and experience no signs of aging. The only apparent means of leaving SCP-1727 once the initial door as been shut is to enter any hallway door. Upon entering a door, a subject will find themselves in another person's body. The body taken may be of nearly any age, gender, or location on Earth, but will never be one close to death. Audio communication with the subject will continue to work within a 24 hour period where they are located within the room they entered, where any responses by the subject appear to become an unfiltered train of thought, and often express discomfort from communication by foundation staff, interpreted by them as an unwelcome voice within their head.

If a subject returns within a 24 hour period, the human possessed will return to their lives without any knowledge of what occured. However, if the subject fails to return within that period, the original owner of the body will be wholly replaced in mind by the subject, and the aformentioned electronic communication will cease to function. Subjects appear to retain no memory or quirks of the life they have replaced and cannot return to SCP-1727 in any way. If explored by another subject, the door entered by the previous subject within SCP-1727 is found locked. The door associated with the subject whose mind was transferred is also locked.

Some doorway numbers have been identified as various foundation staff or D-Class personnel, and are noted (and to be noted) in the 1727 Body Index within the full SCP-1727 research file. These are useful for those studying effects related to SCP-1727. Any doorway numbers to various famous or important individuals are to be noted as "locked" in the 1727 Body Index and reported to level 5 personnel to be contained within a separate file.

SCP-1727 was found as an apparent alleyway entrance to the █████ City Bank, not found in its original 1910 plan nor corresponding as an entrance to a room in the bank with any semblance of sense. It was then removed from its original site and replaced with solid brick.

Addendum 4:
If you have found yourself within SCP-1727 and have had the door shut on you by accident, enter a door and call extension +1727, inform someone of your original identity, condition, and the number of the door you have entered and return to the hallway. It may be possible to rescue you.

Addendum 5:
Trying to return through an SCP-1727 entrance that spawned as a separate instance of the one you entered is apparently not possible. The rescue door will be wholly intangible to the person trapped. Follow the same procedure. You will be given a communications device and be asked to document the seven doors you explore before selecting the permanant transplant body. While you are wholly capable of choosing a body without informing the foundation, doing so will allow you to properly continue your previous life.
