URA/SCP-2641 Preserved

The old SCP-2641 was deleted in August 2018 and exists here in a preserved format.

rating: 0+x
Item Number: URA-2641 Level 3/2641
Object Class: Euclid Classified

Threat Level: Orange

Special Containment Procedures: All URA-2641-1 instances are to be stored in standard containment lockers within the Euclid-class Containment Wing of Site-82. URA-2641 is not to be used to transform modified instances of URA-2641-1 back into their initial states. This is due to potential variances in the interpretation of any object's conceptual framework1.

The primary instance of URA-2641-2 is stored in a digital format within a restricted offline data repository separate from Site-82's intranet. Foundation AIC I/O-INFERNO is to filter any attempts to access URA-2641-2 to ensure that it remains intact. I/O-INFERNO flags all revisions, authorized or otherwise, and logs them within its database for cross-referencing purposes. I/O-INFERNO is to ensure that all information on URA-2641 within Site-82 intranet systems, as well as any ancillary systems connected to Site-82, remains vetted at all times.

URA-2641's team of containment specialists are to administer yearly influenza vaccinations to each member of GoI-2641. All members are also to be vaccinated against Hepatitis A and B when applicable. The existence of GoI-2641 is not to be disclosed on any official documents other than Document URA-2641 and is expunged from all documents kept by the Brazilian government. Foundation disinformation campaigns are to reduce all other knowledge of the existence of the group.

October 31, 2020 Update: The item designated as URA-2641-2 is Document URA-2641. No further proposals for item re-designation are being considered.

Description: URA-2641 is a conceptual entity that inhabits creative media2. URA-2641's existence is only apparent through the effects it has on any person (hereafter "subject") interacting with it in an attempt at understanding its container medium. URA-2641's researchers have identified two distinct effects thus far, designated Type-Kappa and Type-Lambda effects.

Type-Kappa: Type-Kappa effects are triggered by exposure to a medium containing URA-2641. Once activated, URA-2641 imprints itself onto the subject. At this point, the imprint can be transferred into the next object the subject makes skin contact with.

An imprinted object (designated URA-2641-1) displays URA-2641's first effect by undergoing a complete conceptual "transformation" of the way it functions. The "transformed" function is the opposite, or approximate opposite, of the initial function. The "transformed" function alters local reality based on the magnitude of a change in an object's function.

The changes made to URA-2641-1 instances are fully dependent on an affected individual's perception of the object's function, often determined on a subconscious level. "Transformed" instances of URA-2641-1 appear identical to their initial form, adversely impact a subject's assumption of how an affected object will change.

See Experiment Log 2641 for an extended list of object function transformations encountered during testing. The following is an excerpt test log for documentation purposes.


Input: One pencil

Output: An URA-2641-affected subject picked up the pencil, subjecting it to a conceptual transformation. The subject used the pencil to draw a shaded area on a blank sheet of paper, after which the shaded area was rendered invisible and intangible. Attempts at erasing the drawn in portions were unsuccessful. When the subject attempted to touch the shaded area, they instead felt the desk beneath the paper.

Type-Lambda: Type-Lambda effects occur following contact between an URA-2641-induced subject and an artistic medium (designated URA-2641-2). Persons engaging in contact with URA-2641-2 become subject to URA-2641's effects.

After any new instance of URA-2641-2 becomes selected, URA-2641 continues to spread to various other media following person-to-person, person-to-medium, and medium-to-medium contact.

When URA-2641 has gained significant influence3, it attains the capability to subvert information within affected media to suit its own needs. URA-2641 will attempt to make revisions to a selected medium to alter its own properties in real time. URA-2641 is persistent in its revisions, necessitating the use of I/O-INFERNO to ensure uninhibited containment. Redirecting URA-2641 into different media has only resulted in its dissemination into multiple media at the same time. URA-2641 will remain a part of URA-2641-2 until its destruction, at which point it will re-manifest in a random creative medium within 300 m of its initial destruction.

URA-2641 maintains the capacity to manipulate local reality, such that local reality conforms to the entity according to URA-2641-2's revisions. This has the potential to provide URA-2641 with immense autonomy and influence over assigned reality constructs. Analysts within the Memetics and Infohazards Division theorize that the uninhibited spread of URA-2641 would result in a CK-class reality restructuring event.

Site-82's researchers theorize that an uncontained URA-2641-2 fragment exists in an unknown medium or media outside of Foundation control. This would explain the tenacious and persistent behaviour of URA-2641 despite its containment.

Additional fragments will never be located.

Experiment Log 2641:

Note: Any personnel taking part in the testing initiatives of URA-2641 understand the anomalous effects of the object, and are aware of the physical, psychological, and memetic side effects involved. After the testing of an instance of URA-2641-1 is completed, an authorized Senior Researcher is to remove the object from the Testing Lab and move it to a designated Standard Containment Locker within the Testing Wing of Site-82.

Cross-testing with other anomalous objects is to be done using small samples of the desired object, the size of which is to be arranged on a case-by-case basis. Cross-testing with artistic media contact during testing purposes is allowed but should be limited.

Format: The following is an example of the testing format:

Input: [Identify the article being tested]
Output: [Describe the changes made to the article]
Comments: [List personal remarks about the test results]

Test Log 2641:

Input: A kitchen knife
Output: A 200 g slice of pizza was punctured using the knife. When used, the knife increased the density of the pizza proportionate to the amount of force applied. The pizza sample's final density was quantified at over 1,800,000 kg/m3, resulting in the collapse of the table the sample was resting on.

Input: A cotton towel
Output: A 50 mL water sample was poured onto an empty table with the intent of using the towel to wipe up the spill. When the towel made contact with an active object, it began to release water at a rate of roughly 6 L per minute. Water stopped flowing when the towel was placed back into a resting position.

Input: A table lamp
Output: The lamp was placed on the floor and plugged in. All other light sources in the room were dimmed so that the effects of the lamp could be better viewed. When the lamp was switched on, the other light source began to emit moderate levels of UV-A radiation in the place of visible light. No other light entering the room was visible at that point, making relocation of the lamp difficult.

Input: A 100 mL sample of SCP-2938
Output: Given the supposed anomalous properties of SCP-2938, D-8011 was selected for testing. Testing began 4 minutes after exposure to the geas. When D-8011 made contact with SCP-2938, the substance began to transform into a white powder. The substance was later analyzed and determined to have undergone a specific form of an emulsion, and was remarkably similar in composition to dry water.
Comments: Wait a minute. It's water. SCP-2938 is just regular water. Who the hell is running Site-37?

— Junior Researcher Oshiro

Following the testing of SCP-2938, Junior Researcher Oshiro was affected by a Class-I cognitohazard. In response, Class-A amnestics were administered. No further cognitohazardous effects have been noted.

Input: A small rock, grey slag variety
Output: Unknown
Comments: The test was designed to identify the effect URA-2641 had on objects that lacked an initial operation. However, the rock was prematurely affected by URA-2641 during transport to the Testing Lab and could not be located. The rock was later presumed to be lost. The current hypothesis is that the rock's ability to be used in testing was reversed.

Input: A 1 kg rock, grey slag variety
Output: The rock was brought to the Testing Lab and was influenced by URA-2641 in a controlled setting. After making contact with the rock, no changes to the surrounding environment were noted. After 28 seconds, researchers attempted to retrieve the rock but were unable to make physical contact. Instead, researchers were able to pass through the rock, noting mild irritations at the point of "contact". Spectroscopic analysis of the rock yielded inconclusive results. 14 minutes into the test, the rock was noted to begin descending, and passed through solid objects, including the floor of the testing lab. It was later presumed lost.
Comments: This test was a continuation of the last test. Researchers that made "contact" with the rock continued to feel mild irritations for approximately 48 hours. The leading hypothesis is that the rock's existence was inverted and rendered conceptually null. The effect conceptually null objects have on objects with concepts is currently being investigated.

Input: 100 mL sample of SCP-006
Output: After the sample underwent conceptual transformation, a dehydrated lab rat was introduced. Immediately after ingesting the water, the rat continued to behave as expected. Approximately 5 minutes into the test, the rat was rendered comatose and began to age until it expired. Following its expiry, the rat attempted a successful post-mortem spectral possession of the concept of "cheese" on-site.

For the next 3 months (the remainder of the rat's natural lifespan, had it not been introduced for testing), all cheese within Site-82 was rendered green (typical of objects with a high ectoplasmic content) and emitted rat-like vocalizations. As well, the smell of rotting cheese travelled throughout Site-82 in intermittent periods.
Comments: I thought I didn't like cheese before, but now I'm sure of it.

— Junior Researcher Sokolov

Input: SCP-2719, D-8011, Containment Unit #194
Output: Containment Unit #194 was inside. D-8011 became affected by URA-2641. D-8011 went inside. Containment Unit #194 became outside. D-8011 screaming.
Comments: Upon opening the containment unit, researchers were unable to perceive the inside of the unit. An unmanned exploration drone was sent into the unit and disappeared immediately after entering. Video footage taken from the drone was compiled in real-time and filled the hard drive it was sent to at a fast rate, causing lag, at which point the connection was terminated.

Counterconceptual specialists viewing the footage claimed it showed "everything except for the containment unit". An SCP-2719 specialist claimed D-8011 went outside.
