Item Number: SCP-001

Object Class: N/A

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-001 is contained by Project Penrose.

Description: SCP-001 is an unfolded biological macromolecule classified as a protein. Despite having properties that would make its folding spontaneous, SCP-001 will not form a functional protein until observed by a being of sapient level intelligence or higher. Regardless of the surrounding temperature, pressure, and intermolecular forces upon observation, SCP-001's folded state is invariably self-replicating and acquires a unique configuration capable of thriving in its given environment. SCP-001 contains all information necessary for the creation and completion of Project Penrose.
