Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Because of the deleterious effects of viewing SCP-XXXX for any appreciable length of time, access to the object is strictly prohibited without the written and signed permission of Drs. ██████ and █████████. SCP-XXXX is to be stored within a secure chamber in Sector-28, inside a double-locked safe with combinations selected by Drs. ██████ and █████████.

Accidental observation of SCP-XXXX for 5 seconds or less should be treated immediately with a course of L-DOPA and Class-C amnesiacs, followed by 72 hours in quarantine with remote EEG scans every 3 hours (See Addendum XXXX-B). Accidental observation of SCP-XXXX for more than 5 seconds will result in immediate termination, followed by cremation. Any unauthorised attempt to access or view SCP-XXXX will result in immediate termination on order from O5-█.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a complex mathematical equation of between ██ and ██ characters, printed on a 10cm x 20cm piece of recycled paper. Characters are typed in an unfamiliar font, and include █, █, █, █, █, = and █. SCP-XXXX was discovered on ██-██-200█ by Agent ██████████ in the personal effects of a former mathematics professor at [REDACTED].

Viewing SCP-XXXX in its entirety triggers a sudden 2██% increase in neuron firing within the ████████ and ████████ lobes of the subject’s brain. Within ██ minutes, subjects experience an exponentially intense obsession with solving SCP-XXXX, regardless of their mathematical aptitude, and resulting in [DATA EXPUNGED].

Within █ hours of exposure, significant behavioural changes are present in exposed subjects, including extreme irritability, [REDACTED] and violent outbursts. Orders to cease working have resulted in uncontrollable rage. Subjects eventually enter a state of paralysis until time of death within █ hours of exposure. Direct examination of neural tissue has shown scarring consistent with certain strains of acute viral [REDACTED], though no virus has been found.

Addendum XXXX-B: As of ██-██-████, Quarantine measures have been established for subjects involved with SCP-XXXX following [DATA EXPUNGED]. Quarantine chambers have been fitted with cremation equipment to ensure immediate disposal of subjects. – O5-█

Addendum XXXX-C: While we can’t study the equation directly, the material produced by the subjects indicates it may be related to the [REDACTED]. If that’s true, solving this puzzle would disprove everything we know about the physical state of the universe. Somewhere in these scribblings lie the key to it all. -Dr.██████, Dr. █████████



Addendum XXXX-F: Until further notice all research pertaining to SCP-XXXX is suspended indefinitely. –O5-█
