Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX does not warrant need for concern regarding the preservation of normalcy, however, attempts should be made by Foundation personnel to remove all mention of it from public media as a whole.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an infohazardous philosophical quandary that requires the constant intake of basic nutritional substances in order to further consider. As an individual ponders the nature of SCP-XXXX, their body will begin to consume upwards of twenty times its daily caloric intake every minute, leading to rapid exhaustion and often the onset of a comatose state. This effect is only present while the individual in question is capable of considering SCP-XXXX, and therefore can be circumvented easily through unconsciousness or amnestic treatment.

Addendum:

Experiment Number: XXXX-1

Procedure: Culinary Researcher Tim Hyne was able to successfully produce a synthetic flour with 900 Calories in every gram, which he used to bake an incredibly dense bread for the purposes of testing. D-4070 was fed the bread and asked to ponder SCP-XXXX.

Result: D-4070 pondered SCP-XXXX for over three days, without break. Early on into the fourth day, D-4070 seemed to have a breakthrough, at which point he stripped into the nude and began violently tearing chunks of his own skin out, declaring that he was a monstrosity. He was restrained, but was unable to be revived due to severe blood loss.

Experiment Number: XXXX-2

Procedure: Foundation Artificial Intelligence "MENE-34" was tasked with considering SCP-XXXX.

Result: Personnel responsible for the dissemination of civilian information are to ensure that no future technological advances put into jeopardy the public misapprehension that children are the result of sexual intercourse.
