Item #: SCP-XXX
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXX is to be kept contained in Site-███, where it was first discovered. It is stored in a 10 meter x 10 meter cell specially designed to withstand extreme heat. Adjacent to the holding cell is a smaller observation area, separated by heat-resistant glass and a 15 centimeter steel-and-ceramic emergency blast door. The object itself is held in place by twenty-eight (28) ██████████-type electromagnets which keep its position from fluctuating by more than a few centimeters. Should the containment area's temperature rise above ███ degrees Celsius, [DATA EXPUNGED].
Description: SCP-XXX appears as a swirling mass of colour and light, averaging about 1.5 meters across. The object emits heat, radio waves, microwaves, and X-rays within safe limits. As such, SCP-XXX's outer layers are safe to touch and study and seem, for all intents and purposes, to be nothing more than electromagnetically-shaped sheets of light. Its innermost core, however, has been recorded as reaching temperatures in excess of ██ degrees Celsius. The processes fueling SCP-XXX's core remain a mystery, as do the mechanisms which prevent its heat from spreading outwards.
SCP-XXX's core is a point of light or plasma estimated to be only a few millimeters in diameter. Gazing into it for longer than a few seconds has produced psychological blindness, amnesia, and/or severe psychosis including extreme thought disorder. A cursory glance, however, has been shown to be relatively safe. Researchers and test subjects looking quickly at SCP-XXX's core have, upon regaining consciousness, reported seeing images of stars, planetary bodies, various lifeforms of both terrestrial and non-terrestrial origin, and [DATA EXPUNGED] which appeared to be in its thousandth year of development.
Addendum XXX-1: After reviewing the information gathered from the more lucid test subjects (Interview XXX-1) as well as the data gathered by researchers Williams and Blake, some of our scientists have theorized that SCP-XXX is the first documented occurrence of an "alpha point," a theoretical point in space from which every other point can be seen. Drs. Williams and Blake agree that this is a reasonable hypothesis, though Dr. Sterling holds that [REDACTED]. Further research is recommended.
Addendum XXX-2: In light of Incident XXX-Williams-1, researchers studying SCP-XXX are discouraged from allowing anyone to look into the object. Research should be conducted, at least primarily, throughout mathematics and remote-testing. Any subject scheduled to look into SCP-XXX must undergo a thorough background check for [DATA EXPUNGED].
