Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is undetectable by individuals without sufficient anti-memetics training, therefore, standard visual containment is not required.

The cognitohazardous memes that are produced by SCP-XXXX are to be contained by MTF Omega-0 ("Ará Orún").

SCP-XXXX-1 is to be coerced into containing the cognitohazardous memes that leak from it.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a red mandala that has presence on a global scale and manifests in any population center, regardless of population size. Every instance of SCP-XXXX is identical in pattern, coloration and size. Visualizing SCP-XXXX while entering the initial stages of REM sleep transfers the dreamer's consciousness into SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a subterranean cave-like tunnel system that exists purely in dream form. Seemingly endless lengths of rope are tied to stalactites, stalagmites and embedded into the ground.

The majority of SCP-XXXX-1's layout is similar to that of an underground cave, however, it frequently changes in topography and oftentimes incorporates real life structures and historical scenarios in its layout. Example: dream representations of periods of mass hysteria roam these tunnels, tied together via rope.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a cognitohazardous meme that affects the psychological stability of the general population. These memes follow an undetermined path before coming in close proximity to a human. From there, they embed themselves into the victim's subconscious, slowly lowering their inhibitions until they inevitably lose self control. Victims in the late stages of an SCP-XXXX-2 infection appear to lose all ability to use rational thought and behaved in a civilized manner.

SCP-XXXX-3 is an entity of varying form that is tied by ropes in the center of SCP-XXXX-1. Its behavior is dependent on whether the ropes are tied to it or not. MTF Omicron Rho discovered SCP-XXXX-3 in their deployment into SCP-XXXX-1. See addenda.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX's first documented influence was in a Church in [INSERT NAME HERE LATER] when the congregation underwent significant changes in behavior while in prayer. Several individuals rose from their benches and sprinted down the middle aisle, screaming in the manner of chimpanzees. Another significant portion of the congregation bit the wooden pews in an attempt to consume portion of the marble that were comprised of. Traces of blood and fragments of broken teeth were discovered at the site of this incident.

The pastor did not respond to this disruption nor did they seem to notice. After the church service ended, the congregation immediately regained lucidity and disbanded as normal.

After three more similar incidents, the Foundation dispatched field agents to survey the surroundings. Field agents

Addendum:

MTF Omicron Rho ("Dream Team") was deployed to SCP-XXXX-1 for exploration. Experimental Foundation technology was used to record rough video footage of the events that transpired;
