Item #: SCP-1562
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1562 is to be stored in a wooden box with no holes, drilled shut with screws. The box is then to be stored in a standard storage locker. Access for testing is available with permission of any 2 personnel with Level 2 clearance or higher, who have not had previous contact with the artifact.
Description: SCP-1562 is a standard large █████████ brand notebook. Its dimensions are 13.2 x 20.8 x 1.3 centimeters. Despite having standard appearance for its brand, it has an infinite amount of pages. The mechanism for this is currently unknown. It poses no danger when not in sight, but when viewed, it causes a mild desire to write one's thoughts in it. This fades within 3 days of viewing cessation. The effect is, however, stronger and longer lasting upon each subsequent viewing.
As one writes more of their thoughts in the journal, they begin experiencing feelings of detachment and emptiness. Their writings become more in depth the more they write, until they have recorded ██% of their memories. At this point, all higher level brain activity stops, and the subject slips into catatonia. All attempts at revival have failed, and ██████ ███████, the owner of the journal before recovery, has been on life support for ██ years, showing no signs of improving. Examination of the journal shows that the remaining ██% of their consciousness has been stored on the pages of the journal. All contents are then organized into separate sections.
