Experiment Log 2641
rating: +15+x

Note: Any personnel taking part in the testing initiatives of SCP-2641 fully 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 SCP-2641-1 is completed, an authorized Senior Researcher is to remove the object from the Testing Lab and relocate it to a designated Standard Containment Locker within the Testing Wing of Site-82.

Type-Lambda 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. Type-Mu contact during testing purposes is allowed but is to be limited.

Test Log 2641:

Input: 1 cotton towel
Context: A sterilized towel was removed from a designated Testing Lab for testing purposes. The towel was used for drying the hands of various researchers following basic hand-washing procedures.
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 (a researcher's hand, in the act of moving the towel), it began to release water at a rate of roughly 6 litres per minute. Water stopped flowing when the towel was placed back into a resting position.
Comments: Instances of SCP-2641-1 seem to tend towards activating their anomalous effects only when an action is made using them. However, alternate explanations are currently being considered.

Input: 1 stainless steel kitchen spatula
Context: A kitchen spatula was removed from the Cafeteria. The spatula was most commonly used to lift up flat food items during cooking.
Output: A 115-gram frozen patty was used for testing purposes. The spatula was slid under the patty and did not generate any anomalous effects until further movement of the spatula was made. When upward movement was made, the patty pushed downwards on the spatula with a force of one g. All attempts to lift the patty were met with failure until the spatula snapped under the pressure of the patty. The anomalous effects of the flat end of the spatula remained, while the handle was no longer affected by the anomaly.
Comments: While the entire spatula was used, only the portion of the spatula being immediately used was affected by the anomaly. Further testing is required to reach a proper conclusion.

Input: 1 stainless steel balloon whisk
Context: A whisk was removed from the Cafeteria. The whisk was commonly used to introduce air into a baking mixture.
Output: 1 kg of malleable dough was mixed into a bowl. The whisk was inserted into the mix and whipped at a natural speed. The dough deflated immediately after whisking began, followed by the moderate decomposition of the dough.
Comments: The air within the dough has been removed. As well, a gaseous formation thought to be carbon dioxide, integrated itself into the dough mixture, deteriorating it as a result.

Input: 1 table lamp
Context: A new lamp was removed from within its box and assembled for the purposes of testing. The lamp was meant to be used to illuminate dark rooms.
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.
Comments: All light in the visible spectrum was technically removed, fulfilling the necessary properties. A form of non-visible radiation, however, was emitted with the same strength as the existing visible light.

Input: 1 nondescript office stapler
Context: A standard office stapler was removed from the Office Wing. The stapler was regularly used to bind multiple pieces of paper together.
Output: A stack of blank papers were placed on a table. The papers were then positioned so as to rest between the stapler's base and handle. When the stapler was pushed down, the staple ejected but did not make contact with all pages. Instead, the pages and staple were flung into multiple directions with the same force applied on the stapler. While the pages slid from the tabletop, the staple became embedded in a researcher's arm, causing profuse bleeding.
Comments: The researcher will recover, but in the future, the further testing of objects with multiple working parts is to be done in a more controlled environment.

Input: A 100 mL sample of SCP-2938
Context: Personnel at Site-37 sent a 100 mL sample of SCP-2938 contained in a vacuum-sealed opaque container. An updated version of Document SCP-2641 was specifically prepared to facilitate visual changes of the sample upon its transformation into an instance of SCP-2641-1. The sample was then designated to be used for the purposes of testing.
Output: Given the supposed anomalous properties of SCP-2938, a D-class personnel was selected for testing. D-8011 was exposed to the geas of SCP-2641. 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 presumed to have been affected by a Class-I cognitohazard. In response, Class-A amnestics were administered. No further cognitohazardous effects have been noted at this time.

Input: 1 small rock, grey slag variety
Context: A rock, sampled from grounds surrounding Site-82, was used for testing. The object was determined to have no assigned purpose.
Output: Unknown
Comments: The test was designed to identify the effect SCP-2641 had on objects that lacked an initial operation. However, the rock was prematurely affected by SCP-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: 1 medium-sized rock, grey slag variety, with a mass of 1 kg
Context: Another rock was sampled from the grounds outside Site-82. The object was determined to have no assigned purpose.
Output: The rock was brought to the Testing Lab and was influenced by SCP-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 freely 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 slowly 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 of SCP-006
Context: A 100 mL sample was transferred to Site-82 in an enclosed container.
Output: After the sample underwent a Type-Lambda conceptual transformation, a mildly dehydrated lab rat was introduced. Immediately after ingesting the water, the rat continued to behave normally. Approximately 5 minutes into the test, the rat was rendered comatose and began to physically 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.
