Site-3977.

Item #: SCP-3977

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The building housing SCP-3977-2 has been acquired by the Foundation, with designation Site-3977, and houses SCP-3977-1, offices, and research materials relating to SCP-3977. SCP-3977-1 is to be monitored regularly for new communications. SCP-3977-2 is to remain vacant except in controlled testing situations. All previous Polish government records relating to SCP-3977 and PoI-3977-1, 2 and 3 have been acquired by the Foundation and are also stored at Site-3977.

PoI-3977-1, 2 and 3 have been placed under regular Foundation surveillance, with Site-3977 to be notified of any anomalous activity.

SCP-3977-1.

Description: SCP-3977 refers to two related anomalies. SCP-3977-1 is a modified Soviet computer of the MN-10M model, with attached radio receiving and transmitting equipment and a dot-matrix printer. It houses a form of rudimentary artificial intelligence, with which communication attempts have been unsuccessful. It was discovered at the Domki St address of SCP-3977-2 (see below), in a room disguised as a storage closet. Records indicate SCP-3977-1 was a prototype of a joint SB1-GRU Division ‘P’ project to develop an automated system for the analysis of surveillance data. The intelligence within SCP-3977-1 displays anomalous data collection, interpretation and manipulation capabilities beyond the technology it utilises.

SCP-3977-2 is an apartment at ███/204 Domki St, Grzegórzki District, Kraków, Poland. The building was constructed in 1974 and the apartment is an unremarkable two-bedroom residence save for the presence of numerous concealed recording devices. SCP-3977-1 is aware of events that occur in SCP-3977-2. The mechanism by which this occurs is unknown, as although the recording devices in SCP-3977-2 were initially connected to SCP-3977-1, many are now defunct with no effect on SCP-3977-1’s capabilities.

Using the attached printer, SCP-3977-1 will produce brief messages in Polish (translated to English for the remainder of this document) reporting on events in SCP-3977-2. All messages produced by SCP-3977-1 prior to its containment have been uniformly mundane.

The bulk of SCP-3977 activity was related to the Rakowski family, a husband and wife couple Henryk and Elżbieta, and their daughter Lidia, designated PoI-3977-1, 2 and 3 respectively. SCP-3977-1 refers to these individuals as the Primary Subject and Subjects Two and Three in its reports. Given the results of experimentation (see Experiment Log 3977-1), it appears that SCP-3977-1 manipulates information relating to PoI-3977-1, 2 and 3.

In 2002, SCP-3977 came to the attention of the Foundation, with containment procedures implemented necessitating relocation of the Rakowski family. Since this time, SCP-3977-1 has produced the following message on a weekly basis.

7-DAY UPDATE – NO RELEVANT DATA. ADVISE RELOCATION TO WIDNA ST3 ADDRESS.

Addendum 3977-1: Communication attempt with SCP-3977-1
(05/06/2003) Dr Anders enters SCP-3977-2 and asks a series of questions (“Can you understand me?”, “What are you?”, “Do you know who I am?” etc.)
Output:

NEW LANDLORD BECOMING SUSPICIOUS. ADVISE RELOCATION TO WIDNA ST ADDRESS.

Further communication attempts have met with similar results.

Experiment Log 3977-1: Selected experimentation (between 2005-2006) within SCP-3977-2, with resulting SCP-3977-1 output

Addendum 3977-2: Historical records relating to SCP-3977

The following is a segment of SB records relating to PoI-3977-1, 2 and 3, likely generated by SCP-3977 given context and style. There are over ███ pages of records from the period of 1977-1989 with similar content.

Addendum 3977-3: On 02/04/20██, SCP-3977-1 produced the following message.

REQUEST UPDATE ON STATUS OF PRIMARY SUBJECT.

This was the first direct communication from SCP-3977-1, which repeated on a daily basis for 10 days. After deliberation with Director Komorowski, Dr Anders was given permission to attempt communication with SCP-3977-1 with disclosure of information relating to PoI-3977-1. Dr Anders entered SCP-3977-2 and gave a brief verbal summary of the events of PoI-3977-1’s life since 2002, including his retirement, the marriage of PoI-3977-3, and the eventual death of PoI-3977-1. He concluded this summary with a request for SCP-3977-1’s cooperation.

SCP-3977-1 ceased producing regular updates for the next 4 weeks. On 02/05/20██, SCP-3977-1 produced the following message.

ADVISE TERMINATION OF OPERATION.

Since this time, SCP-3977-1 has been inactive. A reclassification to Neutralised is under consideration.
