SCP-XXXX on initial discovery after switching to Power Conservation Mode.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The topside area of SCP-XXXX is to be monitored at all times for signs of local suspicion regarding Foundation involvement in the surrounding area. Any civilians suspected of attempting to investigate Foundation activity are to be apprehended and administered a Class C amnestic following standard interrogation procedures.

The single entrance to SCP-XXXX located on a farm at the western extreme of ███████ is surrounded by a chain-link fence and should be guarded by at least four security personnel at all times. Any civilians seen approaching the area are to be lead off-site by at least two security personnel, under the cover story of unstable mineshafts below the surface of the surrounding area.

The main power supply for SCP-XXXX should be checked every 2 hours and at least 2 backup power generators should be on standby at all times. Power fluctuations in the local power grid are to be logged daily and cross-referenced with SCP-XXXX-01's recorded input readings.

The SCP-XXXX-01 simulation is to be policed constantly by the assigned CyTF to locate any potential signs of GoI-112 interference as and when they appear.

SCP-XXXX-02 through 05 are to be under constant observation. Any suicidal tendencies recognised in SCP-XXXX-02 through 05 are to be reported immediately, and psychological countermeasures should be employed to ensure none are able to cause any significant self-harm.

Research into potential methods to deactivate SCP-XXXX-06 are currently in progress.

Description: SCP-XXXX consists of six separate but interlinked components contained within a large man-made cavern hidden 500m beneath the rural town of ███████, UK.

The six components are as follows:

  • SCP-XXXX-01: An array of 46 interconnected parallel data processing units of custom design, each of which provides a terminal to allow interaction with the entire array. The processing units feed data to and from a single cylindrical relay station that dominates the center of the cavern, measuring 15.3m in height, and 7.1m in diameter. Surrounding the relay station are 8 sub-stations that resemble standard operating tables. Each is connected to the main relay station by numerous cables, tubes and intravenous devices set in place to supply necessary nutrition and nourishment to any humans residing on the sub-station tables. SCP-XXXX-02 through 05 currently occupy 4 of the sub-stations. The remaining 4 are unoccupied.
  • SCP-XXXX-02: A biologically male human, estimated to be ██ years old. Currently resides on the 1st sub-station of SCP-XXXX-01.
  • SCP-XXXX-03: A biologically male human, estimated to be ██ years old. Currently resides on the 3rd sub-station of SCP-XXXX-01.
  • SCP-XXXX-04: A biologically female human, estimated to be ██ years old. Currently resides on the 4th sub-station of SCP-XXXX-01.
  • SCP-XXXX-05: A biologically female human, estimated to be ██ years old. Currently resides on the 8th sub-station of SCP-XXXX-01.
  • SCP-XXXX-06: A bulbous metallic mass sitting atop the relay station section of SCP-XXXX-01, measuring 8m in diameter and 4m in height. Printed on its side is the phrase "BIG-B.A.D." (see SCP-XXXX-01 Retrieved Documents - bigbadintro.txt).

SCP-XXXX-02 through 05 are currently unconscious relative to the physical world, and instead, have their consciousness manifesting within an accurate simulation of modern Earth hosted by SCP-XXXX-01. The simulation has shown to follow the exact same event cycles present in the physical world. As events occur in reality, they subsequently occur within the simulation following an average delay of 23 hours.

Currently, the only known significant difference between reality and the simulation is the almost complete lack of anomalous entities, including the presence of the SCP Foundation and various other GoIs. While anomalous activity has been seen to occur within the simulation, the hazards created by these events are minimal and mostly go unnoticed1.

Extensive analysis of raw non-simulation data located within SCP-XXXX-01's databanks has revealed that the intended mechanism of SCP-XXXX-06 poses a substantial threat to humanity and our reality as we know it. Gathered data indicates that should SCP-XXXX-02 through 05 be awoken simultaneously, SCP-XXXX-06 will begin its activation cycle, leading to a complete CK-Class Reality Restructuring scenario and at worst, a ZK-Class Reality Failure event. However, as long as at least one of SCP-XXXX-02 through 05 is connected and present within the simulation, SCP-XXXX-06 will remain inactive.

So far, no means to deactivate SCP-XXXX safely have been discovered.

SCP-XXXX-01 Terminal Access: On 2003-11-13, the Foundation Security Penetration team managed to successfully obtain root access to SCP-XXXX-01's operating system and establish administrator privileges for various Foundation researchers with adequate clearance. Terminal access may be permitted to Level 3 and above personnel only. To apply for an account on the system, please contact the project director, Dr. Harsky.

SCP-XXXX-01 Retrieved Documents: Since establishing access to the SCP-XXXX-01's database via the terminals, the following public files have been discovered:

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered on 2003-11-09 when the town ███████, UK began experiencing unexplained power shortages, later proven to be a result of SCP-XXXX-01 resorting to the local power grid as a form of backup power supply, following the failure of its main on-site generator.

Deceased GoI-809 personnel found between two SCP-XXXX-01 units.

When the cavern housing SCP-XXXX was explored, a total of 32 human corpses were discovered, 28 of which were identified as employees of GoI-809 ("Better Earth Initiative"). 29 of the bodies have been measured as having varying times of death throughout the first quarter of 2001. The remaining 3 expired between mid-2001 and early-2003.

Prior to intervention by the Foundation Security Penetration team, all computer terminals within the cavern were discovered to have been compromised and locked out at some point in time by an external source, ultimately cutting off all GoI-809 personnel from their own systems.

Upon initial discovery, 4 persons (SCP-XXXX-02 through 05) were connected to SCP-XXXX-01 via 4 of the 8 sub-stations. 4 other bodies amongst the 32 deceased are believed to have previously been connected to the remaining vacant sub-stations, having become disconnected following events that lead to the demise of the cavern's total population.

The nature of the events that lead to their demise and the potential involvement of GoI-112 ("0 Union") are still subject of an ongoing investigation (see GoI-809/XXXX Employee Logs).

GoI-809/XXXX Employee Logs: Following the successful gain of administrative privileges on the SCP-XXXX-01 network, GoI-809 user profile security was overridden, allowing access to various personal logs of former GoI-809 personnel. The following logs have been selected for this document due to their relevance in ongoing investigations (for further logs, please contact Dr. Harsky):

After 09/01/01, no further updates are recorded on any personnel logs. It is believed that the intervening group, GoI-112, caused the mass terminal lockout on this date, which cut all GoI-809 personnel off from their systems. Despite this, SCP-XXXX-01's automated systems continued to record updates.

Foundation Control Reports: Following Foundation acquisition of SCP-XXXX, attempts are being made to maintain the integrity of the simulation while methods to safely deactivate SCP-XXXX-06 are investigated.

Until then, SCP-XXXX-02 through 05 are being maintained at the mood values advised in the file "bigbadwarning.txt".

Incursions into the system are frequent and are believed to be enacted by GoI-112. Currently, most attempts involve lowering the moods of SCP-XXXX-02 through 05, however, attacks involving leakage of compromising information are becoming more frequent.

So far, as a result of GoI-112's attacks, SCP-XXXX-02 and SCP-XXXX-04 have developed symptoms of severe depression and anxiety. SCP-XXXX-0█ has previously developed symptoms of severe depression but has since experienced a slight recovery. SCP-XXXX-0█ is the only subject to have shown nothing more than mild symptoms of anxiety. Regardless, all four are being monitored equally.

The following reports document important changes in the behaviour of SCP-XXXX-02 through 05, as well as significant attacks by GoI-112:
