Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Thaumiel

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is given high-security priority,

SCP-XXXX opened only at a discretion of personnel possessing 4/XXXX clearance level. The activation of the object's anomalous properties

Site-224's staff tasked with inventory control is to maintain a strict record of decommission and disposal of any items stationed at the Department of Advanced Memetic Studies. Based on this record, assigned personnel are to deduce when testing with SCP-XXXX was performed.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an experimental prototype of a cognito/infohazard termination chamber, located in Site-224's department of advanced memetic studies.

Inside SCP-XXXX is a controlled informational void, achieved by anomalously nullifying the connection between the conceptual representation of the chamber's insides and their placement in the physical world. As a result, all concepts entering the chamber are rendered nonexistent. When an object or an entity (hereby SCP-XXXX-1) is placed into SCP-XXXX, the information directly related to them will gradually disappear.

SCP-XXXX's effect spreads to all forms of data (written, oral, and visual), as well as individuals' memories. It is believed that SCP-XXXX's effect does not physically remove clusters of information (such as written words or photographs) but rather makes them fully unperceivable and indescribable, which results in SCP-XXXX-1 becoming an antimeme. A similar effect applies to SCP-XXXX itself, as all test subjects reported being unable to perceive the chamber's insides.

SCP-XXXX was created as part of the project "Lesser knowledge", which was launched on 2018/10/20 and aimed at finding innovative ways of suppressing infohazardous anomalies that could not be safely contained due to their properties. It was theorized that a localized informational void would be capable of rendering a majority of such anomalies harmless, as it would result in the individuals' being unable to perceive them and become affected. SCP-XXXX's creation was proposed by Site-224's Memetic Department Head Martin Styles; it was later approved as the potential last resort in a case of a dangerous infohazardous anomaly breaching containment.

Following the object's creation, a number of tests were conducted by M. Styles and the assigned research team. The full list, along with the M. Styles' notes, is presented below.

Summary Notes
The eastern supply room contains two 40 cm cardboard boxes, according to the preliminary inventory record it contained four. Assigned personnel were able to recognize the mismatch but are unable to explain it. Apparently, SCP-XXXX's effect does not fully cover the collective (numerical) cognition.
A box with two baseballs and number "three" painted on it was located in the head researcher's office. Near it, two pieces of paper and an audio recorder was found. All items contained descriptions of the two balls in one of three forms (I. E. visual, written and oral) performed by head researcher M. Styles. Empty space on those pieces of paper, as well as the audio length, suggest that there actually was "three". All information removed as expected, time to try something different.
Head researcher's office has four picture frames hanging on the wall. Three contained different paintings, the last was empty. On the researcher's computer, several web pages with no content were opened. Further inspection revealed them to be pages of websites dedicated to visual artworks. Several sources, all indicate that the content, whatever it was, is fully removed. Consider it a success.
It was discovered that in the list of anomalous items the designation that follows AM-1552 is AM-1554, despite other designations having no gaps. Additionally, two D class employees were found detained in an anti-infohazard quarantine zone for no apparent reason. Testing showed to anomalous influence in the persons. Here goes the first anomaly. Something minor, understandably, but it seems like everything worked well.
One of the security personnel guarding SCP-XXXX is unarmed, while his partner possesses a handgun. No explanation for that mismatch could be provided by either the guard in question or the inventorial staff. By all records, the guard seems to have always been unarmed despite the security protocol stipulating weapons. This is odd, I have no idea what we were trying to achieve here.
It was established that there are nine research personnel in the department's eastern wing, despite the documentation stating there is ten. Additionally, one of the working tables in the office is unused. According to the present employees, they never saw anyone performing their duties at that table. We've got a problem. It seems someone violated SCP-XXXX's containment procedures. Possibly an accident during the last test? I'll start the investigation immediately.
