SCP-XXXX, shortly after being recovered from ███████, Greece.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be locked within a small storage vault. The vault is only to be opened for interviewing and testing purposes. Interviews and testing are only to be conducted by Level 2 personnel with strong philosophical views.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a spherical structure with a diameter of approximately 0.26 meters. It is primarily composed of calcium and carbon. If one or more sapient beings come within approximately 4 meters of SCP-XXXX, a two-dimensional, elliptical entity will appear directly above SCP-XXXX. The size of this entity, referred to as SCP-XXXX-1, varies, with the smallest recorded measurement being 0.5 meters across and and 0.6 meters high and the largest measurement being 3.1 meters across and 3.7 meters high. SCP-XXXX-1 appears to be an wormhole connected to a supervoid located outside of the observable universe. SCP-XXXX-1 will disappear if no sapient beings are within the proximity of SCP-XXXX for approximately 6 minutes.

Upon appearance of SCP-XXXX-1, if any nearby individuals do not have strong philosophical views, multiple pale arms will emerge from SCP-XXXX-1. The size and amount of these arms depend on the size of SCP-XXXX-1 and the number of individuals within proximity. These arms will grab all non-philosophical individuals and pull them into SCP-XXXX-1. Individuals typically die shortly after passing through SCP-XXXX-1 due to suffocation, though some die due to injuries inflicted by the arms.

If all initial or remaining individuals have strong philosophical views, no arms will emerge. Instead, an entity found in the supervoid connected to SCP-XXXX-1 (see Test XXXX-B-2), referred to as SCP-XXXX-2, will telepathically address the nearby individual or individuals. If responded to, SCP-XXXX-2 will communicate. SCP-XXXX-2 can speak in all languages, including extinct ones. SCP-XXXX-2 has been observed to be generally friendly with those it talks to, and has a strong preference for philosophical debates or discussions on philosophical views.
