Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the difficulties associated with moving SCP-XXXX, it is to be contained on-location. The door to Apartment 819 has been bolted shut and a motion detector will trigger a silent alarm if access is attempted. Three members of MTF 刀-五 ("Nirvana") are stationed at the lobby of the building and are to investigate the entrance to Apartment 819 upon triggering of the silent alarm.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to thirty-four adult humans located within Apartment 819 of the ████1 Lake Apartment Complex in Beijing, China. Thirteen instances are female, while the remaining twenty-one are males, all between the ages of 18 and 30. SCP-XXXX instances require neither food nor water, and have not been observed to excrete waste. All instances are nude and curled into the fetal position, and are arranged in five concentric circles. No further attempts to relocate SCP-XXXX instances are permitted due to loss of personnel.

If an individual enters physical contact with an SCP-XXXX instance, they will rapidly undergo extreme muscle atrophy and collapse, curling into the fetal position. Through unknown means, any clothes the individual is wearing at the time will slowly fuse to their epidermis, eventually resulting in their skin developing large patches of fabric. Additionally, the individual's skin will fuse, melt, and entwine with the skin of the SCP-XXXX instances they contacted, and the individual will be pulled toward the instance. As their skin continues to fuse their internal organs will also begin to merge together. A growth of ocular nerve will sprout on their forehead, eventually growing into a fully-sized eye. This eye has been confirmed to be entirely vestigial, and does not respond to stimuli. D-Class testing has confirmed this phenomenon to typically take three to four days. At this point, the individual is fully considered an SCP-XXXX instance.

SCP-XXXX instances constantly broadcast an extremely focused radio signal at a frequency of 4hz. The signal is a near-constant chanting of the sound "Om", a sacred syllable in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism, by a masculine voice. Since DATE A COUPLE MONTHS BEFORE TUFTO'S TALE, SCP-XXXX's signal has been interrupted 9 times. Each interruption consisted of a 15 second break in chanting, and a short message relayed by the same voice in Pali, a Middle Indo-Aryan language used primarily in Buddhist religious ceremonies.

Based on the strength of the signal, it is theorized to continue 43.78 lightyears into outer space.

Intercepted Communications:

… we wait on the beaches of Shambhala2

… indeed, the stone in the sky must be purified. The hubris of these people is constant; unchanging …

… we wait for your arrival with bated breath, O Enlightened One …

… We win their minds with heavenly bows, we will win their hearts with an arrival bearing swords and brimstone …

… we humbly suggest a stone for you to hew into your domain: ..--- ----. .-.-.- ----. ---.. --... -.... / -. --..-- / .---- ..--- ..--- .-.-.- ...-- ---.. ....- .---- / .
Note: The Morse code translates to "29.9876° N, 122.3841° E", the approximate coordinates of the summit of Mt. Putuo3.

… we will continue expanding the circle. The Wheel of Dharma is ever growing…

… their perversion of the Path must be stopped. Their worship of the rock must be stopped. Their disrespect to Him must be stopped…

… it is time. Strike now; become a screaming wave and shatter their kingdom of sand …

Incident XXXX.1: Research has shown that every new SCP-XXXX instance increases the signal strength by 5-7%.

Incident XXXX.2: After a sustained satellite and telescope investigation into the area SCP-XXXX broadcasts toward, Foundation personnel have discovered the existence of a large mass of unknown composition and origin. This mass, tentatively designated SCP-XXXX-B, has been confirmed to be moving toward Earth at a rate of [LOW-ASS SPEED]. Further testing is forbidden.
