Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

SCP-XXXX is to be kept within a locked vault at all times, within Site-██, in █████, ██████. The vault will be fitted with two locks, both of which must be opened simultaneously to access the vault. The site will be manned by at least 3 Class 3 personnel at all times, who will take shits guarding the vault. All assigned personnel are required to record all dreams. Should a meeting with SCP-XXXX-1 occur, the affected personnel must create an audio log, to be delivered to security, before being treated with Class-A Amnestics. This requirement may be waived for testing purposes, under orders from at least 2 Class 4 personnel.

Any civilians or personnel found attempting to access SCP-XXXX are to be treated with Class-A amnestics. Civilians are to be interred in █████ hospital with 'amnesia'.

Description:

SCP-XXXX's physical description cannot be objectively verified. Each individual perceives a separate form. The form perceived is consistent with the individual, regardless of whether it is viewed directly or indirectly. Photos taken of SCP-XXXX assume this same quality. Every documented appearance perceived is consistent on some points.

The object is always a container similar to a man-made model. It always assumes the same dimensions - 0.5 x 1 x 1.5 m - with a variation of 5cm in both length and breadth. It never carries any form of lock, or latch that keeps it shut. Lastly, it seems to show a tendency towards the viewer's personal concept of 'beauty'.

SCP-XXXX spreads what can only be described as a memetic 'field'. The exact size of this 'field' cannot be ascertained, but it's reach has been established to be a minimum of 10 km. Analysis show that the size of the field may vary, depending on several factors (see Adendum 1). Within this field, lucid dreams have been shown to be far more common, depending on proximity to SCP-XXXX.

Occasionally, a figure will enter a Lucid Dream occurring within the area. This entity is hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-1. Various descriptions state this entity to take the appearance of a humanoid male of average height, with a 'kindly smile', and 'bright blue eyes'. Other details vary from description to description, including attire, facial hair, skin color, hair color, and age. However, SCP-XXXX-1 seems to always adapt to the environment of the dream.

Once a subject has been contacted by SCP-XXXX-1, they lose control of the dream. SCP-XXXX-1 seems to act conversationally, speaking to the subject on a variety of subjects, although never about it's own nature. Attempts to interrogate or interview SCP-XXXX-1 have met with elusive answers. After a short period of time, SCP-XXXX-1 offers the subject to join him in an unknown location, together with an unknown group of people, always referenced within the conversation as 'the others'. See Addendum-B for details on these conversations, as well as the relevant Interviews.

If the subject accepts the offer, they immediately wake up, with a longing to find the figure, and an instinctive knowledge of SCP-XXXX's location. Subjects show no signs of being controlled from afar, but almost always seek out SCP-XXXX individually, although any form of significant obstacle almost always wards them off. If treated with proper Amnestics, the subject loses all knowledge of SCP-XXXX.

Should the subject be allowed to reach SCP-XXXX, they will open it, and thereafter immediately fall into a comatose state. At this point, no known stimulus can awaken the subject, and they will continue to live in a comatose state until they die. Should the subject be moved more than 10km from SCP-XXXX, they will start to show signs of fatigue, and die within 24 hours. ██ of such patients are located within █████ hospital, where they are subject to further testing.
