SCP-XXXX's user control interface

Item #:XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP XXXX is to be secured in a 5 X 10 X 15 meter cell at Site-76. The cell is to be constructed of 15 centimeter thick stainless or high-carbon steel lined internally with 1 meter thick concrete. The cell is to be sealed entirely with the exception of a riveted steel blast door containing a ceramic insulating core which is to be used as the only entrance to the cell. The blast door should be equipped with an electromagnetic lock requiring simultaneous activation from one release button placed at the entrance to the cell and another placed remotely on site in a location known only to the on-site head researcher.

The inside of the cell should be equipped with high definition video cameras sending a direct feed to a control room at least 150 meters away from the containment cell. SCP XXXX's cell should contain 4 remotely-controlled incendiary devices, capable of heating the entirety of the cell to 3,300* C for a duration of at least 12 minutes.

The entrance to SCP XXXX's cell should be guarded at all times by 3 armed guards, only entering the room when necessary for upkeep or testing. No person should have direct contact or operation with the machine if they have a background in machining, engineering or Church of the Broken God literature, and a sudden interest in any of these areas by any personnel assigned to SCP XXXX is to be considered an indication of cognitohazard. Any personnel displaying obsessive curiosity regarding SCP XXXX or related materials is to be immediately reassigned and monitored for psychological stability. All operation and direct contact with SCP-XXXX should be through D-class personnel where possible, and all personnel involved should rotate positions after every test where this is not possible. Lead researchers should never be in direct contact with SCP-XXXX to maintain integrity of containment protocol, and are not permitted to enter SCP-XXXX's cell unless necessary for continued containment or the safety of on-site research staff.

Description: SCP is a Siemens brand CNC vertical milling machine measuring 2200 X 2400 X 2700 cm. The machine is equipped with a standard user interface, although most of the buttons and options produce no measurable effect on the outcome of items produced.

SCP-XXXX contains an extensive list of [XXXX] programs, each containing data to produce a different tool or item (referred to as SCP-XXXX-2). Attempts to add, remove, or modify programs have all failed. Programs are listed in typical machining program format, containing the letter O following the number of the desired program. Researchers with a level 3 or higher clearance may Document SCPXXXX-O-List for an extensive list of the different items produced so far during testing.

General object types produced by the machine include edged weapons and cutting tools, various construction tools, and religious icons associated with the Church of the Broken God. A large portion of the programs are dedicated to anatomical creations, including the entire skeletal structure of the human species as well as items presumed to "modify" or "enhance" standard human anatomy. Testing with D-class personnel have shown the metal to have very high biocompatibility, and parts produced by the machine integrate with an average 60% less recovery time than comparable high-grade titanium implants. All attempted cases of replacement in test subjects have succeeded with no instances of rejection or other medical complications.

When in operation, attempting to load any of the manufacturing programs and produce an item causes the machine to display a low coolant warning on the main operating screen. This condition will persist and the machine will not produce any items unless the coolant tank is filled to the minimally acceptable amount (marked by an 'empty' line) with SCP XXXX-1.

SCP XXXX-1 is a viscous liquid containing a granular substrate. SCP XXXX-1 is comprised largely of human blood, while other detectable materials include a range of manufacturing materials including motor oil, graphite, and standard machine coolant. When separated mechanically, at least 15% of the volume of SCP XXXX-1 is comprised of a currently unidentified liquid having very high lubricating qualities.

When SCP is filled with SCP XXXX-1 and loaded with a common manufacturing metal such as steel, titanium, or copper, SCP XXXX is capable of producing a number of items from the programs already installed in the machine. Attempts to load new programs or to copy programs from the machine's interface have all failed.

Items produced by the machine are made of an unidentified metal different from that loaded into the machine at the start of the program. All objects show hardness, lubricity, and corrosion resistance beyond that of any currently produced metal or synthetic compound. Tests show that objects produced by the machine seem to be impervious to scratching, chipping, or corrosion of any kind. Objects show no warping in heat or cold, but all objects will combust into a white flame similar to magnesium if exposed to constant temperatures in excess of [redacted]. In addition, some objects contain geometric shapes that should be impossible with any form of traditional reductive machining or other manufacturing processes.

SCP-XXXX-2 cause cognitive and behavioral changes in humans who possess them or are exposed to their creation. These effects increase in severity and likelihood with repeated or prolonged exposure to SCP-XXXX-2 or their manufacture. These effects are more likely and severe in individuals with backgrounds in fields such as engineering, machining, metallurgy, blacksmithing, tool and die making, or weapons design. For this reason, individuals with known backgrounds in these fields are not allowed to have direct contact with SCP-XXXX or SCP-XXXX-2 unless deemed necessary for safety or security.

Effects of exposure to SCP-XXXX-2 will typically manifest in the form of obsessive thought or appreciation of items produced. Personnel affected have been reported as remarking on the craftsmanship or relative quality of the tools produced, sometimes professing their desire to possess or be capable of creating tools of the same quality. Excessive comments or fixation to this nature is to be considered a warning sign of early cognitive effects due to exposure to SCP-XXXX. Continued exposure may result in a fixation of the techniques and equipment used to manufacture SCP-XXXX-2. Individuals affected at this stage may become engrossed in reading of mechanical engineering, biomechanical design, metallurgy, chemistry or similar processes. Individuals familiar with research into the Church of the Broken God may express a sudden deep interest in their lore and history and make fervent requests for access to more materials. At this point, effects will generally continue to worsen even with removal from any contact with SCP-XXXX.

As effects of SCP-XXXX worsen, personnel will attempt to immerse themselves solely in research and discussion related to SCP-XXXX or its produced materials, and will begin to withdraw where this is not possible. This stage is characterized by a discomfort and feelings of inferiority of basic human anatomy. Subjects may make negative comparisons of human anatomical structure to the designs produced by SCP-XXXX, or may push for continuing research into the use of SCP-XXXX-2 to augment or enhance basic anatomy. Subjects who are aware of the existence of the Church of the Broken God may begin to associate their teachings with necessary research to meet these goals, and may begin attempting to adhere to or spread their doctrine. Subjects may also begin to attempt to modify their own body in an attempt to rectify perceived inferiorities. At late stages of exposure, incidents of self-mutilation, violent outbursts, fasting, and [redacted] have all been observed. In [██%] of these cases, an an attempt at a forced-self integration event was made, wherein the subject attempted to remove part of their own anatomy and/or integrate instances of SCP-XXXX-2 into themselves. 70% of subjects at this stage report heightened awareness of mechanical noises including humming, ticking, and digital beeping from normal mechanical sources.

Testing with D-Class personnel has shown that normal use of SCP-XXXX-2 falling under the category of tools greatly increases the onset of these effects, and that anatomical integration of SCP-XXXX-2 almost always results in an immediate onset of late stage effects wherein subjects will often express a desire for further modification inside of the same day. Subjects requesting additional integration cite feelings of power or general well being in the transplanted body part. Subjects after transplantation will quickly show psychological effects relating to later stages of exposure, and these effects seem to be delayed only temporarily if another transplantation is done in an attempt to prevent them.

Testing is currently underway to determine the possibility of amnestics, memetics, and other treatments to stop or reverse the effects of exposure to SCP-XXXX after removal from the
assignment.

One wing of the warehouse SCP-XXXX was recovered from, taken during recovery

Recovery: SCP-XXXX was recovered from an abandoned warehouse in [███████], Mexico. Heightened monitoring of Church activities resulted in information of a splinter group acting in the region. Mobile Task Force Delta-5 ("Front Runners") conducted targeted sweeps of the area, discovering the location due to local rumors of increased activity at the Site. Foundation personnel raided the site and found it inhabited by twenty two individuals bearing information connecting them to the Church of the Broken God. All subjects encountered were hostile and attacked Foundation personnel with a combination of conventional arms and more primitive edged weaponry. Subjects encountered were found to be highly resistant to standard small-arms fire, and increased small explosives use was necessary to subdue all threats. This was due to anatomical augmentation where much of the subjects' skeletal support structure had been replaced with metallic instances heavily resistant to all forms of ballistic damage, although subjects were still found to be incapacitated by blood loss or other organic damage. SCP-XXXX recovered along with 5 industrial drums of SCP-XXXX-1, minor church religious artifacts, and [██] instances of SCP-XXXX-2.
