Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX should be contained at all times by a 20-centimeter thick lead housing, and should be stored within an unlit high-security containment vault below Site-██.

Site-██ should be located no less than 250-kilometers distant from the nearest population center above 100 persons. The current location of Site-██ should remain undocumented at any level of classification. Under no circumstances should audio or visual recording devices of any kind should be allowed within a radius of 50-kilometers surrounding Site-██.

In the event of containment failure, Site-██ will be equipped with nuclear countermeasures.

A single Class-C Containment Specialist should be assigned to maintain Site-██.

The Containment Specialist will:

  • Be personally selected by O5-██ for exceptional merit and service
  • Undergo Procedure 020-Justice upon selection for assignment
  • Remain at Site-██ for their remaining Foundation service
  • Report directly to O5-██

SCP-XXXX must never be:

  • Visually exposed to any person
  • Verbally conveyed to any person
  • Reproduced utilizing any format
  • Disseminated in any fashion

All individuals exposed to SCP-XXXX must be terminated immediately.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a single instance of white printer paper measuring 8.5 by 11 standard inches, featuring 4 lines of printed English text. Exposed individuals have described this text as a series of factual statements regarding [DATA EXPUNGED]. Due to the difficulty posed by investigation, the exact nature and veracity of these statements remains undetermined.

Symptoms of SCP-XXXX exposure include:

  • Total certainty that the contents of SCP-XXXX are true (100.00%)
  • Compulsion to disseminate knowledge of SCP-XXXX (99.13%)
  • Extreme psychological and behavioral disturbances (99.13%)
  • Attempted or successful self-termination (88.31%)

No known class of amnestics appears to counter the above listed symptoms, though Procedure 020-Justice inoculates against them. Auditory exposure to SCP-XXXX remains a risk.

SCP-XXXX was discovered on ██/██/20██ in ████, USA, lodged within a deposit of gold mineral. Surrounding rock was dated at 301±0.4 myr. Further research into the origin of SCP-XXXX is required.

Projections indicate that SCP-XXXX may be capable of initiating an AK-Class scenario. The possibility of further event escalation including initiation of an XK-Class scenario cannot be dismissed.

All attempts to damage or destroy SCP-XXXX have been met with abject failure.

Note: Per O5-██, all access to SCP-XXXX is currently suspended.
