Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: All nations with Freedom of Religion's local zoning boards, revenue agencies, incorporation agencies and all media from said nations are to be monitored for any mention of "The Shabbetaian Church of the Earth" or any translation of said name. If such a name is found mentioned, Mobile Task Force Sigma-7 (Mehmed IV) is to investigate the area for any SCP-XXXX-2 instances and administer amnestics to all non-foundation personnel with knowledge of any expression of SCP-XXXX and to all instances of SCP-XXXX-2. . All instances of SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-1 are to be placed in standard containers. Containers containing instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are only to be opened with permission from a Level 4 researchers.
Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation given to an unknown number of 17th-century style silver seals bearing what SCP-XXXX-2 instances call "The Seal of The Shabbetaian Church of the Earth". If SCP-XXXX is used to create a wax seal on a surface, that surface will become an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-1 instances are indestructible, (except for instances of SCP-XXXX-1a and SCP-XXXX-1b) and exhibit memetic properties. Any human observing an SCP-XXXX-1 instance will become an instance of SCP-XXXX-2. In addition, a photograph of a SCP-XXXX-1 from a high-quality camera (hereafter designated SCP-XXXX-1a) or an exact replica of SCP-XXXX made from a material the same shade of white as wax (hereafter designated SCP-XXXX-1b), will, despite being able to be destroyed, produce the same effects as a regular instance of SCP-XXXX-1. However, if SCP-XXXX-1a and SCP-XXXXX-1b are even slightly altered, or if their appearance does not appear to the same as wax, they will lose their effect, implying that the ability to produce instances of SCP-XXXX-2 is memetic (however, see addendum)

SCP-XXXX-2 instances will become obsessed with 17th-century messianic figure Shabetai Tzvi and will try to infect others by showing them instances of SCP-XXXX-1, and will react violently to anyone who doesn't want to observe SCP-XXXX-1. Scp-XXXX-3 instances will often produce instances of SCP-XXXX-1a, if possible, to infect more people. If multiple SCP-XXXX-2 instances encounter each other, they will try to set up "The Shabbetaian Church of the Earth". [CAN'T THINK OF WHAT ACTIVITIES THE CHURCH DOES. I WILL THINK ON IT AND APPRECIATE SUGGESTIONS]

Addendum: The memetic nature of SCP-XXXX has been questioned given [REDACTED]; however, the fact that the effects of SCP-XXXX-1 seem to be dependent on a specific information set has lead some researchers to propose the phenomenon of "Metamemetics".
