|Size:||39 inches long, 20 inches at widest point|
|Usage Precautions:||All personal when listening to this item's sound in any format must wear protective ear guards|
|Handling Precautions:||All personal should be aware that the item is likely fragile, due to the wooden body|
Due to the nature of the item (it being a guitar) it is difficult to transport the item from point A to point B. Thus, if used in any mission, an MP3 file is to be played instead. Any personnel on a mission involving this item must wear some form of device to block out the sound created. If one is recording the anomaly, one must simply use the guitar as if it is a normal instrument.
The object is a black guitar, approximately 4.5 feet long, and at its widest point, 2 feet wide. The strings are made of a copper/iron alloy. The guitar itself seems to be made of wood, however, data concerning it's material make up is at best little known.
When any of the strings are played from, a very loud, shrill noise is emitted from the item. This shrill noise, though harmless if exposed to for under six seconds, is capable of dangerous biological effects. At 7 seconds of exposure, the subject begins to bleed from the ears from the blood vessels bursting. At 10 seconds, the linings of organs and inside of the subject's mouth and nose bleed as well. Within 25 seconds, the subject's organs are totally liquefied and the subject dies. Animals seem to be affected as well as humans.
This effect only manifests if the subject hears the noise produced by the item. The effects of structures seems to be nil, though research is still being done to determine if that is the case.
New research indicates that some forms of electronics can be affected, such as batteries, which will crack and "bleed" much like a living subject.

|Item:||Spatial Displacement Device|
|Potential/Current Hazards:||Possible hazard if used incorrectly/without correct supervision|
|Reported Anomaly:||Mind-affecting and matter manipulation|
The object is to be used for sabotage and small-scale stealth attacks under Protocol 4768325-B. As of Incident 4766928, any and all testing is to be done at least thirty (30) kilometers away from any populated non-target areas.
All testing is to be done following approval from at least two (2) ALPHA level personnel, and under close supervision of three (3) personnel trained in emergency object containment protocols if testing is to fail. Access to documentation of the object is only to be given to BETA level personnel or higher that are assigned to the object for research.
Updated as of Incident 4766928.
Object is deemed suitable for deployment and use by any Chaos Insurgency team after approval from one (1) alpha personnel and the current commander of the team. Any and all attempts to use the object prior to aforementioned approval are to be met with lethal force. If the SCP Foundation is to attempt a raid to retrieve the item, Base Four is to be put on complete lockdown and all assault personnel present at the facility are to be alerted of immediate Kill On Sight protocol for any non-Insurgency personnel attempting to enter.
In the event of a containment breach all Heavy Strike Teams stationed at the object's current facility are to protect the object at all costs. All Research staff are to be evacuated immediately. The object is not to be activated during this time and any attempts made to activate the object are to be met with lethal force. If any person/object is to successfully activate the object all strike teams at the facility are to evacuate immediately and return one hour after the object's activation. If located, the object/person responsible is to be immediately executed/destroyed.
The device is currently stored in High Security Storage Wing 372-█ of the Base Four. All personnel at the facility are rotated weekly; any and all attempts to activate the object are to be met with lethal force. The object is enclosed in a 2x2x3 meter chamber with a secondary, attached room with one-way glass for observation. The object's chamber is fitted with fourteen (14) motion sensors to stop unwanted usage of the object.
The object appears to be a 1x1x1 meter cube, consisting entirely of steel. The object weighs 78.5 kilograms, 1% of the approximate weight of a normal 1x1x1 meter steel cube. The cube has a red button, 5 centimeters in diameter, attached to one side. The button is labeled "Initiate." All attempts to remove the button have been met with failure.
The item's anomalous properties manifest when any human presses the button. Upon pressing the button, the human in question, herein referred to as the subject, disappears. Video surveillance during the disappearance reveals the subject to be in one frame, and gone in the next. Despite not being visible or tangible in any way to others, subjects report to be standing where they were before coming in contact with the cube, completely immobile.
Shortly after disappearing, subjects are, in theory, given total control of all matter within their immediate memory, which, in most cases, restricts them to what is in the room at the moment. Subjects are able to move objects, raise or lower the temperature of objects or of the room itself, or rearrange the particles of anything within their memory. Depending on the level of intelligence of the subject, they are able to maintain relative control for three to ten seconds before their grip on matter begins to loosen. When this happens, any attempts by the subject to alter its environment either fail, resulting in unintended damage to everything within the immediate vicinity, or succeed, but have unintended consequences, usually resulting in damage to everything in the immediate vicinity.1 Subjects slowly regain visibility and tangibility after five to forty minutes, at the cost of some memory loss. The severity of the memory loss depends on the complexity of the tasks performed while using the object.
Any humans with knowledge of the cube that remain within one (1) kilometer of it eventually develop a desire to press the button on the face of the cube. Tests show this can be prevented indefinitely by the person in question without the aid of others, though separation from the cube after prolonged exposure to this effect can cause depression, insomnia, and fits of psychotic rage, though these side effects are rare.
Test: Subject is put in testing chamber with a 2x2x2 centimeter iron cube, and is told to press the button on the face of the object. After pressing, the subject is told to hold the cube stationary in mid-air for as long as possible.
Result: Subject successfully holds the cube in mid-air for nine seconds before the cube begins to rotate, increasing in speed at a rate of approximately 10 meters per second per second. Subject is instructed to continue holding the cube up. After about seven minutes, the cube is ripped apart, the shards being thrown outward by centrifugal force, shattering the one-way glass and killing Dr. ██████, ██████████████, and ██████████, and causing a total of $█████ of damage to the two rooms, including the equipment that was destroyed. Subject has no memory of the iron cube spinning.
Test: Subject is put in reinforced testing chamber and is remotely monitored and instructed. Inside of the testing chamber is the device and one 2x2x2 centimeter solid diamond cube. The subject is instructed to press the button on the object. After pressing, the subject is instructed to hold the cube in mid-air for as long as possible.
Result: Subject successfully holds the cube in mid-air for three seconds before the cube begins to melt, despite sustaining its previous temperature. Subject is instructed to attempt to hold the remains stationary. After two more seconds, the room itself, and all matter inside the room also begin to melt, despite steadily dropping in temperature. The subject is instructed to halt his attempts. The testing chamber, along with the rooms around it and their contents, continue melting, and evacuation of the facility is called for. The entire facility continues to melt and subsequently drop in temperature for the next thirty minutes, after which the entire facility has been reduced to its base materials, destroying █ items and causing a total of $████████ of damage with ██ casualties. Search of the facility reveals no sign of the test subject.
Notes: I'm pretty sure testing this thing isn't worth it if all we're trying to do is levitate objects with it and it's causing this much damage. I'm requesting testing be put on hold indefinitely for this object. -Dr. ███████
Request denied. Testing will continue as planned. -ALPHA "Andromeda"
Test: Subject is placed in remotely monitored temporary testing facility █████-██ with installed speakers in the █████ desert. The subject is given the object and 1 liter of water and instructed to press the button on the face of the object. After pressing the button the subject is instructed to freeze the water. After freezing the subject is instructed to unfreeze the water.
Result: Subject successfully freezes and unfreezes the water. Fifteen minutes later subject regained visibility and tangibility without consequence.
Notes: Shortly after regaining tangibility and visibility, the subject drank the water. Fifteen minutes later, while being transported to another facility, the subject violently combusted, killing █ assault personnel and destroying the armored car the subject was kept in.
Test: Subject is once again placed in temporary testing facility █████-██ behind one-way glass, allowing the subject to view a secondary testing chamber with 100 test subjects. The subject is given the object and is instructed to execute all other test subjects.
Result: Subject successfully kills 49 test subjects via crushing before accidentally creating a large, black, viscous mass2 releasing several [REDACTED], which kill all test subjects excluding the one in use of the object before attempting to remove the object from the testing chamber. 15 guards enter the chamber and attempt to contain the [REDACTED], and are able to successfully dismember 3 of the [REDACTED] before being decapitated, at which point Heavy Strike Team Foxtrot-64 was called in. Foxtrot-64 successfully destroyed the last of the [REDACTED] and containing the black mass. After rematerializing the subject has no memory of the past year.
Test: Subject is placed in temporary testing facility █████-██ with one armed guard. The subject is instructed to press the button on the face of the cube, after which he must stop the guard's bullet. The guard is then instructed to shoot at a target mounted to the wall.
Result: Subject successfully stops the bullet after two attempts, after which the bullet explodes with a force estimated to equal a 500 megaton nuclear bomb. The blast destroyed the entire facility along with $███████ of property damage to a city within the blast radius. After rematerializing, the subject has no recollection of the past seven years.
Notes: Those affected in the city were properly compensated after the experiment.
Object was found on December ██, 19██ in front of Gate A of Base Four, with the following documents attached:
Enjoy our little gift. Use it wisely.

Object Recovery Log 1458
Location: █████ ███, Antarctica
Description: Object recovered by Mobile Task Force Beta-7 after numerous seismic anomalies were detected from its location. Testing at its temporary containment cell in Site-78 revealed that the object has potent matter-altering abilities, with the possibility of [REDACTED].
Origininally written by Victor Strate.
|Potential/Current Hazards:||Possible Hazard with Mind-affecting anomaly|
|Reported Anomaly:||Comprehensive Photo Documentation of All Known Things|
The object has been deemed suitable for use by any Gamma clearance or higher personnel requiring information of any kind. All requests to extract information from the object are to be sent, a week in advance, to an Alpha Clearance personnel for approval under the format of a basic Item Usage Request log. If approved, all personnel listed in the Item Usage Request log are to be given unrestricted access to all sectors of the object's containment facility.
As of Incident 7489523-A, all attempts to retrieve information are to be done by test subjects, remotely instructed by at least one (1) Gamma clearance or higher personnel. Filled out and approved Item Usage Request log is still required. All Test subjects used to retrieve information from the object are to be terminated immediately after information retrieval is completed. In the event of any loss of communication with the test subject, any currently stationed CI Strike Team in Facility: ███████-██ is to be sent to the test subject's last known location. The test subject is to be terminated on sight and any information the test subject is carrying is to be returned to Facility: ███████-██ for examination.
The object is currently kept in underground Facility: Eternity 68, where its contents are being categorized by a research team (see Appendix A). The entrance to the elevator going down to the facility is currently within Facility: ███████-██, constantly guarded by no less than twelve (12) armed guards at any given time, with at least one (1) Heavy Strike Team stationed in the immediate vicinity. Filled out Item Usage Request Log with Alpha Approval paper must be shown before entry. To activate the elevator, at least one person must provide DNA identification that is scanned across a database of all Chaos Insurgency Personnel. If any discrepancies are detected during this process, the Heavy Strike Team currently stationed at the location is to be alerted immediately, and all people attempting to enter Facility: Eternity 68 are to be terminated immediately.
Facility: Eternity 68, along with its contents, the object, was discovered in the year 19██ when a coal mining camp discovered the object after opening a new section of cave. It was contained by the SCP Foundation shortly afterward, and through multiple expeditions it was revealed to be an underground sequence of artificially lit, leveled off tunnels, currently believed to have extradimensional properties due to their excessive size that would not normally fit in the earth's underground, including it's core and mantle. The facility currently known as ███████-██ was built around the entrance to the object over the next few years, and came under Chaos Insurgency control during their 1924 separation. The object itself is a collection of approximately fifty quindecillion pieces of inkjet paper, each with what appears to be a hand-drawn representation of an object somewhere in the universe, done in such detail that some images appear to be a black and white photograph. The papers themselves are arranged in numerous stacks, each lined up on shelves throughout the facility. For any object that cannot be fully depicted on one page, there are numerous pages depicting each area of the object. For objects such as books, each page is depicted individually.
Next to the entrance to the tunnel is an electronic panel with a video screen and slightly protruding keyboard. When left idle for more than five minutes, the screen displays the words "Input Search Query." When any set of words or numbers are typed, the location of all documents related to the input are shown. As more is added to the user's search query, more document locations are removed from the screen, narrowing down the user's search until the needed information's location is shown.
When any object is modified in any way, shape or form, including damage to the object or the combination of any other object with said object, the piece of paper for that object disappears, with a new paper depicting its modified version appearing somewhere in the facility. If an object is destroyed, the object's paper will also disappear, with an entirely new object on the shelf replacing the original. Due to this effect, if an entire section's contents are simultaneously destroyed (which is a common occurrence), the entire room disappears, with a new room appearing from a hallway with empty space somewhere in the facility. Because of the rate at which new pages are added and disappearing, the facility is constantly being modified, and thus has had sensors built in to recognize modifications and send them to the electronic map database.
As of ██/██/19██, the object has shown mind-affecting and physically-affecting properties toward all personnel that come in direct contact with the object's contents. Test subjects and personnel assigned to Facility: ███████-██ have not been affected. Approximately 10% of all personnel affected by these properties have reported aching, nausea, hallucinations and, in some cases, scopaesthesia; none of the symptoms have dissipated after separation from the object. Psychological examination and interrogation of affected personnel has led researchers to believe [REDACTED], along with revealing that some affected personnel also suffer from depression, insomnia and fits of psychotic rage. (See appendix C)
As the object taking the place of previously destroyed objects have no relation to one another, all attempts to categorize the object have been stopped. Researchers are currently searching for a means for building an automated organization system.
As of █/██/20██, the amount of pages contained by the object has begun to drop at an estimated rate of ███ billion per second, resulting in the disappearance of numerous rooms and sections of the facility. None of the pages, rooms or sections to disappear have reappeared or been replaced so far, suggesting a steady loss in matter to the universe.
Incident Report 7489523-A
Incident: Doctors ███████ and ██████████ were sent into Facility: Eternity-68 for information regarding the location of the object ███████ ███. Shortly after having found the necessary information, Dr. ███████ reported nausea and audio hallucinations. Fifteen minutes later contact was lost with both Dr. ███████ and Dr. ██████████; CI Team-57 'Electrum-Silver' was sent in to locate the two men. Approximately thirty minutes later 'Electrum-Silver' reported being violently attacked by Dr. ███████. Dr. ███████ was captured and interrogated; the deceased Dr. ██████████ was located as well and disposed of. 'Electrum-Silver' members report Dr. ███████ to have claimed during the attack that he could "Hear the voice of god".
Notes: Post incident attempted interrogation of Dr. ███████ revealed him to have developed major psychosis. Twenty-four (24) hours later, Dr. ███████ was found dead in his holding cell; autopsy results inconclusive.
As of █/█/20██, approximately █% of guards stationed around the elevator to the object have reported light early stage symptoms of the object's mind affecting properties. Psychological examinations have failed to prove any noticeable psychological changes in the guards. Researchers are currently testing the strength and reach of the object's mind-affecting properties.

|Item# and Aliases:||#537, The Doctor's Sofa, 'Twin Snakes'|
|Size:||233 cm wide, by 78 cm tall, by 81 cm deep.|
|Type:||A coffee colored sofa with oak legs.|
|Potential/Current Hazards||Hallucinogenic hazard|
|Required Wear/Weaponry||No gear is required to prevent the effect, the item is only activated when a subject lies lengthwise upon it.|
|Location:||Base Six, storage locker Twelve.|
|Reported Anomaly:||Causes the subject to hallucinate manifestations of their mental issues.|
The item is to be used with authorization of two GAMMA class personnel, or the authorization of one BETA or higher class personnel. It can used to diagnose and treat mental issues of CI personnel. In subjects with known violence or those who are prone to violent acts, their hands and feet are to be bound prior to usage of the item. The item is 100% accurate in diagnosing mental issues. When treating these issues, the use of the sofa to manifest the subjects condition, decreases the treatment time by up to four weeks. When not in use, the item is to be stored in its storage locker in the Minimum Security wing of Base Six. prior to use of the item, it is to be dusted. The item is also to be washed after every third usage, or every month after the most recent cleaning of the item.
The item's anomalous properties were discovered during a routine psychological check up of Doctor Halsey. During this time the doctor reclined lengthwise on the sofa while the practitioner proceeded with the appointment. Doctor Halsey reported seeing three figures, the first resembling his wife Claudine, and others appeared as his two sons, Henry, and Thomas3. Ever since this appointment, Doctor Halsey has become much more stable and social with his coworkers. Other members of the Base Six staff have used the sofa to a similar effect. No negative side effects have manifested as a direct consequence of using the item. In fact, personnel with symptoms of high stress have shown decreased average stress and anger, and are much calmer than they were prior to exposure to the item. Despite the items non-threatening effect, its mass use among Chaos Insurgency personnel is not to be implemented in accordance to Chaos Insurgency protocol.
*Rustling is heard as Dr. Halsey, and Dr. Caduceus settle into their seats.*
Dr. Caduceus: Please state your name and rank for the record.
Dr. Halsey: Dr. Halsey, GAMMA level Item researcher, stationed at Base Four.
Dr. Caduceus: Now, Halsey. Let's get down to busin-
*Dr. Halsey gasps, interrupting Dr. Caduceus.*
Dr. Caduceus: What, is something wrong?
Dr. Halsey: No, no you can't be here.
Dr. Caduceus: Who are you talking to Halsey, there's no one else in the room.
Dr. Halsey: I'm sorry Claudine, but there was nothing I could have done.
*Halsey pauses as if someone else was speaking then begins to cry, no words other than Halsey's and Caduceus' are heard.*
Dr. Halsey: I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. You didn't deserve it, none of you did…
Dr. Caduceus: Talk to me Halsey, who's there?
Dr. Halsey: You do? You forgive me? Oh thank god, I thou- I thought you hated me. Come here you little rascals, you too Claudie.
*Dr. Halsey continues to weep, and to thank the hallucinations, referring to them as Claudine, Henry and Thomas.*
*Five minutes later, unable to get Halsey's attention, Dr. Caduceus calls for a security team. Two minutes pass, security enters the room and removes Dr. Halsey from the couch, he falls unconscious five seconds later.*
Thirty minutes after falling unconscious, Dr. Halsey awoke; he explained that he saw apparitions of his wife and children, who died in a Foundation raid on his home on ██/██/198█.
Important Note: prior to the reading of this log it should be noted that the subject is a SIGMA level insurgent, and use of psychosis enabling medication was approved by two BETA personnel.
*Struggling is heard as a security team brings the subject into the chamber and onto the couch, the subject is in a straightjacket and is gagged.*
Dr. Raymond: Oh that won't be necessary, he needs to talk for the test.
*One member of the security team undoes the gag and walks out with the rest*
Subject: Fuck you, fuck you all! When I get out of this, I'm going to kill every last fucking one of you!
Dr. Raymond Now, now Mr. Stevens. We can't have that…
Subject: Oh yeah? let's see you try and stop …
*the subject pauses, his gaze lowering to the floor in a submissive manner. looks up a moment later in an alarmed fashion*
Subject: Stop it, You're hurting him.
*Subject reacts as if he were slapped across the face*
Subject: I'm sorry. No, please, not again, I said I was-
*Subjects screams in pain*
Subject: no, no … stop, please. I'll never-
*Subjects screams again, duration was much shorter than the first time*
Subject: Mama? No! He'll only hurt you too, get out while you ca-
*Subject pauses, listening to the hallucination*
Subject: I- I can't, he's too strong, how am I supposed to fight him?
*reacts with shock and despair*
Subject: No! Don't do it, let her go. Please dad please.
*stops protesting and listens once more*
Subject: O-okay, … I'll try.
*subject closes his eyes and focuses*
Subject: He's small, he's weak. He can't hurt me, he's gone, I'm safe now.
He can't hurt me anymore.
I'm safe now.
*Subject is silent for two minutes, at this point Dr. Raymond speaks*
Dr. Raymond: You back with us? How are you feeling?
Subject: For the first time in a while I feel … like everything's gonna be okay.
