Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is a method of preparing textual content for human digestion, devleoped independently by both Ambrose Restaurants and Foundation Gastrologist Quentin Harrison and Memeticist Akio Naguri. Using complex chemical processes, SCP-XXXX allows for textual information to be made into a combination of flavors that conveys said information in gustatory form.

The methods used by Ambrose and the Foundation differ in the first stage of their preparation— while Ambrose Restaurants exclusively uses hard copies, the Harrison-Naguri method allows for the conversion of electronic texts into edible form.

The product of this process is designated SCP-XXXX-A.

SCP-XXXX-A instances are chalky solids of varying flavors. The size of an SCP-XXXX-A instance is directly proportional to the amount of information it carries— the novel Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix accounts for approximately 1700KB of data at optimal compression, which amounts to approximately 200mg of mass. Despite this, SCP-XXXX-A instances are highly flavor- and nutrient-dense, with a single SCP-XXXX-A instance providing the recommended daily nutritional content for a human adult. The only discernible difference between instances of SCP-XXXX-A made by the Foundation and Ambrose Restaurants is that Foundation-made instances have a rougher texture and tend to crumble in water before settling, while Ambrose-made SCP-XXXX-A instances dissolve completely.

Liquid versions of SCP-XXXX-A exist, but are less information efficient, due to the tendency for the liquid to stick to the inside of the container, depriving the consumer of information vital to the meal.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was formulated by Dr. Harrison and Dr. Naguri in late 2017, following Dr. Naguri publishing a paper on the potential of gustatory memetics.

Simultaneously, Ambrose Restaurants began marketing
