Item Number: XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The containment and testing of SCP-XXXX is to be supervised by one (1) authorized personnel with security clearance 4, currently this post is held by Dr. Carter Dr. Mullens. SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a small steel case with the dimensions of 10cm x 7cm x 5cm, the case will be locked with a basic cylinder lock. In the case is a foam cutout in the shape of SCP-XXXX , this foam will protect SCP-XXXX from unintentional physical damage during transport. The key to the cylinder lock of the container should be given to one (1) authorized personnel with security clearance level 4. Any personnel who attempts to breach SCP-XXXX’s containment by “lock picking” is to be terminated immediately. Before any personnel comes into contact with SCP-XXXX, a safety brief must be conducted by authorized personnel with security clearance level 3. This safety brief should accurately and thoroughly detail procedure in an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. Any subject who is under SCP-XXXX-1’s effects for longer than one (1) hour is to be terminated immediately, authorization by Dr. Mullens must be given. It is recommended that the earphones of SCP-XXXX should not be worn by any personnel for any reason.

Description: SCP-XXXX has the appearance of a portable media player device known as a "walkman". SCP-XXXX has a CD reader, an audio socket, and earphones which cannot be removed from the devices audio socket. SCP-XXXX also has several buttons, most of these buttons have no observable effect, with the exception of the “play” button. When the “play” button of SCP-XXXX is pressed while the subject is wearing SCP-XXXX’s earphones, the subject is placed into an unconscious state and the device seems to interface with the brain to place subjects in a dream-like state designated SCP-XXXX-1.

In this state, all subjects report manifesting in a concrete corridor that is 3 meters tall, 3 meters wide, and each subject reports that they could not see the end of the corridor. In this corridor, there are steel door frames to each side of the subject at random intervals, the number of steel door frames varies for each subject. In these door frames, no adjoining room can be seen, instead there is a transparent plasmic substance in the door frame. Through this substance, each subject reports observing a place or event that they have seen before. When a subject attempts to pass through the substance, the subject will pass into the image of the memory, which begins to happen, as it did in reality. The subjects could observe this event in third-person, they could freely though they could not interact with any objects or people in the event. The memory event will conclude after a random interval, though it is hypothesized that the memory event will conclude after a significant moment to the subject has occured. After a memory event has concluded, the subject will experience loss of vision. When their vision returns they are standing in front of the doorway they had just entered. To end SCP-XXXX-1 a “stop” button identical to the one on SCP-XXXX which is placed in a significant position in any of the memory events must be pressed. When pressed the subject will return to a conscious state.

If the “stop” button is pressed in reality while a subject is unconscious and in an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 the subject’s brain function will cease completely causing immediate death.

Addendum-XXXX-5: Testing for SCP-XXXX has been ceased, further testing must be approved by at least one (1) personnel with security clearance level 5.

Addendum-XXXX-8: Any authorized personnel who conducts tests on SCP-XXXX-1 is to adequately restrain the subject so that they cannot exit their current position. After the instance of SCP-XXXX-1 no longer exists, an immediate on-site level 2 psychological evaluation is required for the subject.

Addendum-XXXX-9: No Compact Discs are to be placed in SCP-XXXX (See SCP-XXXX Test Log █ for further details.)
