IR Spectrum Image of Incarcerated SCP-9001.

Item #: SCP-9001

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-9001 requires a magnetic containment unit modified with a stage 2 polarity inverter and a magnetic resonance chamber with a minimum of 2.0 cm thick trivalent Iron doped Silicon dioxide crystal lining. The containment field must be held above 4.34 T to ensure sufficient magnetic strength. A range of 4.56 to 4.86 T is required by SOP for fluctuations in SCP-9001 and the generator. The anomaly will be contained within the core shielded with a psionic Faraday Cage. Standard procedure shall be followed for psionic metastatic excitation (PME) incarceration. The psionic Faraday cage shall be large enough to surround the magnetic containment region, typically a 5 m diameter sphere, and testing laboratory. The cage will be made 15 m x 20 m x 12 m. These dimensions include a vertical height sufficient for the containment region and a 300 m2 testing facility.

Addendem: 6/17/2015 Modifications were completed on Magnetic Containment Unit Gamma, (MCU-ɣ) within Site-15’s Anomalous Psionic Entities Facility on June 16, 2015. These additions include four segregated observation rooms and laboratory within the testing facility and PME management system integrated in the stage 2 polarity inverter. These provisions allow for a programmable testing protocols with automated emergency shutdown.

Description: SCP-9001 is a PME of unknown origin that is able to consume other PMEs. These target PMEs are encouraged by SCP-9001 after ensuring sufficient psionic energy has been accumulated for a Psionic Breach Activation Event. The resulting PME is consumed immediately.1 Testing determined that the anomaly responds to psionic bursts, concluding that SCP-9001 absorbs psionic energy.2 The ability of SCP-9001 to destructively consume a PME is unlike any other cataloged by The Foundation’s Paranormal Investigation Team.

Upon containment, the energy of the magnetic field allowed materialization of SCP-9001 in the Infrared spectrum. IR imaging equipment has captured the anomaly, displayed above is a video playback frame capture of SCP-9001 in containment.[1]

Field activity of SCP-9001 is similar to standard PMEs, capable of locomotion and adherent to normal psionic decay. This decay matches standard psionic decay models developed by researchers. Attempts to date the anomaly's own breach event has determined that SCP-9001 is younger than the capture date.3 Case file investigations marked the first known SCP-9001 induced breach event on May 11, 1963.

Standard PMEs become entangled with an object. As a general rule, the breach event entangles with a nearby psionic conductor.4 SCP-9001 is capable of locomotion like a standard PME, however, is not apparently entangled to an object. If it is true that all breach events require entanglement, SCP-9001 defies this law or is entangled with something that allows for such free range.

SCP-9001’s methodology is guided by psionic energy signatures. Case studies revealed that after the resultant PME of a psionic breach event has been consumed, it will follow psionic bursts that are the strongest in relation to the entity consumed. The capture of SCP-9001 was based on this discovery.

Below are a series of previously unsolved activation events where a PME should have occurred, but have not been found by field agents. Events are ordered chronologically. This is not an exhaustive list.

Addendem: It is the Foundation's position that PMEs are not the "spirits of the dead", this is a misconception held by those outside of the scientific paranormal community. A PME may retain what appears to be the "conscience" of the individual it emerged from since emotions are linked to psionic patterns. At best, these PMEs are nothing more than robotic expressions of the psionic patterns of the deceased. The Foundation holds PME incarceration to be ethically and morally justified under this principle.
