SCP-XXXX after containment.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be secured in a 30m x 30m open ceiling chamber at Site-█. Once every week, one D-class is to be sent into SCP-XXXX's containment chamber to wear SCP-XXXX so that its primary effect may manifest. Should its primary effect advance for whatever reason, guards are to terminate SCP-XXXX-1 to prevent the conclusion of SCP-XXXX's effect taking place. In the event that this fails and SCP-XXXX's primary effect reaches conclusion, guards must refrain from all contact with XXXX-1 to prevent undesirable temporal alterations. Mirrored surfaces are not to be allowed into SCP-XXXX's containment chamber at any time, and all personnel entering are subject to search. Should a Zeta-event occur, all personnel are to avoid SCP-XXXX's sphere of influence and any instances of SCP-XXXX-A to prevent undesirable temporal alterations. Testing utilizing D-class must be approved by Dr. Corik. Any and all testing involving Zeta-events must be approved by Dr. Corik, 2 additional Level-4 personnel, and at least two Overseers.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a pair of Ray-Ban brand glasses with lenses composed of an indeterminate material. These lenses possess a refractive index of -[DATA EXPUNGED], though to an unaided eye are visibly identical to normal crown glass lenses with a refractive index of 1.52. Currently circulating theories postulate the refractive index may be of significance regarding the source of SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties. SCP-XXXX is otherwise indistinguishable from physically alike pairs of glasses until its anomalous properties are made apparent.

SCP-XXXX's primary property manifests when worn by any human with sight. This effect is visible only to the user. Upon donning SCP-XXXX, the user is able to selectively view organisms or objects in any past state and any possible future states; E.g., an adult human may appear as they were at any point in their childhood, as they currently are, extremely/mildly aged, or deceased (see Addendum XXXX-01). This "4D vision" has not been observed to fail when used to view any mundane object/individual. Upon viewing oneself in the mirror while wearing SCP-XXXX, [REDACTED], inevitably resulting in death.

After wearing SCP-XXXX for approximately 14 minutes, the wearer (hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-1) will lose the ability to selectively view the temporal states of objects/organisms. Rather, they will be subject to all temporal states simultaneously. Once this has begun, SCP-XXXX may not be removed by any known means save termination of SCP-XXXX-1. Should XXXX-1 still be alive approximately twenty minutes after SCP-XXXX's primary effect manifests, XXXX-1 will begin to visibly experience all personal temporal states simultaneously. This includes memories, emotions, and physical experiences. This experience is always painful and invariably results in death. It is virtually impossible to kill SCP-XXXX-1 in this stage due to their state of multi-temporal existence. Approximately 30 minutes after SCP-XXXX's primary effect activates, SCP-XXXX-1 will die. Shortly after death, the remains [REDACTED], leaving no trace of XXXX-1's existence. SCP-XXXX will remain unaffected.

If SCP-XXXX is left unused for a period of time exceeding approximately 2 weeks, a Zeta-event will occur. When a Zeta-event occurs, everything in a 14-meter radius will begin to exhibit states of temporal regression/degradation. This is detrimental, if not fatal, to structures and organisms caught in this sphere of influence. Approximately 18 seconds after a Zeta-event begins, a number of creatures (labelled SCP-XXXX-A) will materialize through an as of yet undiscovered means. Instances of XXXX-A will begin to seek out a suitable individual (SCP-XXXX-A's requirements are outlined in Addendum XXXX-02) to wear SCP-XXXX. All unsuitable individuals are subject to attack by XXXX-A instances. Once targeted, instances will attempt to make physical contact, at which point individuals are subjected to temporal manipulation. Most commonly, the subject is disposed of in a way similar to SCP-XXXX's primary effect, but occasional cases of total regression and rare cases of repeated death/regression have also been documented.

When an instance of XXXX-A locates a suitable candidate, it will attempt to make physical contact which will place the candidate (hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-2) in temporal stasis, fully insulating them from any outside force, including the Zeta-event. Once an XXXX-A instance has seized XXXX-2, all remaining XXXX-A instances will carry the subject to SCP-XXXX's location. When all entities have returned to SCP-XXXX, a random instance of XXXX-A will force XXXX-2 to wear the glasses, at which point the subject, now XXXX-1, will fall out of temporal stasis, fully experiencing all of SCP-XXXX's primary effects instantly. XXXX-A instances will not dematerialize until the conclusion of SCP-XXXX's primary effect. The Zeta-event ends when this occurs. After approximately 10 minutes, XXXX-1 will die, and SCP-XXXX will become inert until the next Zeta-event if left unattended.

Recovery: SCP-XXXX was recovered from the ruins of a ████████████ outlet store in a mall located in ██████, Oregon when reports of a disturbance reached agents embedded in the area. Preliminary investigations by field agents warranted deployment of MTF Sigma-6 (Rift Rippers). Location was noted to be littered with deceased, extremely aged civilians, suggesting anomalous activity in the area. Further investigation corroborated this claim, as the ████████████ store was discovered to be in a state of temporal chaos. In the midst of the site, SCP-XXXX was found to be the only object not affected by the temporal shift. After audiovisual memetic Class-B amnesiacs were distributed from mobile network towers in the area and a disinformation campaign dismissing the event as a terrorist attack was successfully launched, SCP-XXXX was appropriated and brought into Foundation custody without incident, where its effects were not made apparent until the following Zeta-event.

SCP #2


Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: [unfinished]

Description: SCP-# is an ornate wooden chair approximately 183 centimeters in height with the seat at approximately 46 centimeters from the floor. The legs of the chair connect under the seat and further extend approximately 15 centimeters above the back. Carvings in the wood of SCP-# place its time and place of origin in the Qing Dynasty, circa 1657. Aside from its anomolous properties and unusual resilience to aging, SCP-# is unremarkable in every way.

Its anomolous effects first manifest when any male individual views SCP-#. Upon viewing SCP-#, test subjects have expressed an irresistible compulsion to utilize the object. This compulsory effect lasts until eye contact is broken for an estimated 4 minutes, and lasts longer in individuals of Oriental descent. If the individual (hereafter referred to as SCP-#-1) sits upon SCP-#, they will invariably identify themselves as Aixin-Jueluo Fulin, the 3rd Emperor of the Qing Dynasty. Upon proclaiming themselves as said Emperor, several terra cotta warriors (dubbed SCP-#-A) will manifest within 5 meters of SCP-#, expressing unquestioning loyalty to SCP-#-1.

SCP-#-1 will initially exercise authority with SCP-#-A instances in a benevolent manner, but over time will exhibit more tyrannical behavior. A strong paranoia also develops in tandem with the belligerence, ultimately leading SCP-#-1 to perform rituals akin to summary executions, designated Mu-events. During a Mu-event, any individuals congregated together or individuals in seclusion are subject to victimization. A victim/group of victims will be seized by SCP-#-A instances and forcefully escorted to SCP-#-1, where it will accuse its victims of a variety of crimes, which has consistently shown to include treason, conspiracy, and attempted usurpation of the throne. After the charges have been announced, SCP-#-1 will order the execution of its victim. [unfinished]
