Under the Third tab Titled "The Prototype"

All and any criticism of my draft would be greatly appreciated.

Summoned by PM.

SCP-XXXX is to be kept locked at all times.

If it's never opened, you don't need to mention this.

Enter through one door and without exception you will exit from the other within about ten steps or 7.6189 meters to be exact.

Don't write like you're creating an instruction manual. Specifically, write it something like:

Enter through one door and without exception you will exit from the other within about ten steps or 7.6189 meters to be exact.

*''Subjects entering SCP-XXXX will always exit through the second door.''*

Incidentally, you probably ran 25 feet through a number converter. Try to give whole numbers if it's not crucial to containment.

This is thought to be due to what is essentially data corruption caused by an unfinished prototype.

What? It's not software right? It's a physical door.

So the anomaly is fairy basic, which means that it either needs a good context around the SCP or tweaking to the main anomaly to be more interesting. Apart from the clinical tone issues, the following points need attention:

- Right now, you have an object with a clearly defined activation and function, with no context or backstory, essentially a generic magic object. I recommend adding some more to this, because at this point the idea seems to be more of an entry on the log of anomalous items than an SCP object that would merit special Foundation containment.
- There's no mention anywhere about where we found the SCP, who the original creator was or anything related to the origin of the anomaly.
- The science here is flimsy. This is essentially a door to a wormhole, which is not 'thought to only be possible within one dimensions
**dimension**of space'. A wormhole is a theoretical phenomena where extreme gravitational force bends space-time to effectively 'fold' two separate points close together to allow instantaneous travel.

To quote the excellent essay on SCP Pitfalls:

*''The problem with magic items is that they're universally boring. The Foundation is, to me, fundamentally an exploration of the human response to the existence of the supernatural and paranormal; simply having an object that exists without any in-depth emotional response does not fit that description.''*

The largest gripe however, is the Foundation actively screwing around with it.

Testing with D-Class is usually fine, but one mistake might create a black hole inside a Foundation Site, which is obviously a gigantic risk that would never be taken.

Feedback over, good luck!

Thanks for the critique, but in regard to "There's no mention anywhere about where we found the SCP, who the original creator was or anything related to the origin of the anomaly" that information is hinted at throughout the testing logs. According to the Testing logs SCP-XXXX was developed in the now defunct Research and Development of Anomalous Objects by Dr. REDACTED. Why exactly it was made, and why Dr. REDACTED is well, REDACTED are not mentioned. Perhaps I should explain a bit more of the why of its development and the why of Dr. REDACTED's REDACT'ion, but the elements are definitely there.

I'd prioritise fixing the tone issues and the science behind the anomaly first. With tone issues I refer to the example in the line-by-line.

Fixing the Science is easier said than done. The only way you could move a distance in zero time is by dividing by zero which is currently outside of mathematics for the most part. It isn't just something that's outside of our current understanding of mathematics, it's something that can't be a number but must exist within mathamatics. You'd have to make an entirely new axium just to allow it, but I've got nothing better to do so I might as well give it a go :D

The only way you could move a distance in zero time is by dividing by zero which is currently outside of mathematics for the most part.

Two things wrong here:

- Math is a handy tool for modeling physics, but don't confuse the two. See the planck units for one example of how the universe handles dividing by zero. (short version: it ignores it)
- Wormholes are actually legitimate hypothetical objects predicted by several theories of fundamental physics, and they aren't anything like what you're describing. You enter a wormhole at point A and you exit at point B, skipping most of the space between. Dividing by zero isn't involved any more than when you take a step forward- you were there, you are now here, time passed between.

I didn't explain well enough it seems :I. My intention is to use the equation c= 299,792,458m/s. This is the universal constant and from what we can tell so far this relationship is always constant. What i want to do is to travel only along a space axis or only along a time axis, one dimension of space at a time. To move only along time is easy, Zero divided by anything is just Zero, but moving only in Space requires dividing by zero. Also the plank length isn't a real boundary or line, it's just the limit of our understanding. There are things and places that exist outside of that limit, singularities to be precise. Singularities are from what we can tell, single points in space and time, zero dimensional objects. If we can expand our understanding to include zero dimensions and its relationship with three dimensions, understanding one dimension isn't too far off. In addition, from what we can tell, the universe is for the most part flat. In order to create a wormhole, you'd have to fold the entire universe which is ridiculous. It'd also allow you to do ridiculous things like travel back in time which I refuse to accept! No Time travel godammnit! TLDR: I'm going to expand the science behind this topic before I'll be happy with it.

Also the plank length isn't a real boundary or line, it's just the limit of our understanding

It's based on the plank constant, which is basically defined as "one photon". Saying that it's not a boundry is like saying *the speed of light is no real boundry*, as both are considered to be physical constants.

In addition, from what we can tell, the universe is for the most part flat. In order to create a wormhole, you'd have to fold the entire universe which is ridiculous.

The universe has a flat *topagraphy*. Which means that barring outside influences, two parallel lines won't intersect. Anong other things.

Furthermore, space already bends- gravitational effects of high-mass bodies warp spacetime. Gravitational lensing is the most dramatic proof that such bending occurs. So it *can* be "folded", for lack of a better term.

The planck Length is the smallest meaningful amount of distance in Physics, make anything smaller than that and it will probably become a black hole. To put it another way, the Planck length is what separates our ordinary universe from black holes, the outer limits of our understanding of our Three dimensional universe filled with Three dimensional things. However Black Holes are something that exist, something we can touch, something we can observe, something that isn't Three Dimensional. I don't want to write a wormhole, those are incredibly energy intensive and dangerous (those aren't something I could fit in a box). What I want is to get an understanding of these Zero dimensional objects, because if i can do that i can then begin to understand what's between Zero dimensions and Three dimensions. If I can do that, then I can in theory figure out One dimensional travel, travel through space without travel through time, teleportation in a way. C=299792458m/s

E=M(299792458m/s)^2 If i set time to zero for this equation I get three possibilities m(distance)=0 m(mass)=0 and E(Energy)= 1/0 The equation only needs one of these to be true in order to be valid, but all three could be true as well. However if I want to send something a Distance, then Distance and Mass can not equal Zero. Therefore Energy must be equal 1/0 to allow this. If I can set a value for 1/0 that doesn't cause too many contradictions and paradoxes, then that gets me started.

We live in a 4-dimensional universe. Three dimensions of space, one of time. Attempting to bypass time requires bypassing the speed of light in some manner. The speed of light is a constant that stays the same *regardless of how fast you travel*, which is the cause of time dilation. *This is why time travel is a common theoretical result when you try to go faster than the speed of light*.

So far, only quantum entaglement, wormholes, and alcuberre drives are able to bypass the speed of light. Entaglement is a result of quantum shenanigans (and hasso far proven to only transmits information, not objects) while the other two require harnessing enough power to twist gravity into a pretzel shape, so to speak. And don't (automatically) result in time travel (some theoretical uses of wormholes can cause timetravel).

These are pretty much your only options if you want to scientifically explain trying to travel while bypassing time.

This is generally why you *don't* want to be too specific when writing the mechanics behind SCPs. The more you dig, the harder it is to scientifically explain what you *want* to have happen.

C=299792458m/s

E=M(299792458m/s)^2 If i set time to zero for this equation I get three possibilities m(distance)=0 m(mass)=0 and E(Energy)= 1/0 The equation only needs one of these to be true in order to be valid, but all three could be true as well.

… no. E=MC^{2} simply describes the relationship between mass and energy. What you're trying to do isn't covered by it *at all*.

First of all quantum Entanglement can not transfer information at all, neither slower than nor faster than the speed of light. It's more of a math problem, You know that these two particles have a specific relationship, so if you know the state of one, you know the state of the other. However if either of their states are changed this relationship disappears. It's a fancy deduction which is actually rather impressive considering the nature of small particles, but it's not magic and it doesn't bypass the speed of light. The speed of light isn't an actual constant, it is the relationship between The distance light travels and the time it does it in. If Time and Distance are considered constant, then C is what changes. Whether a ball is falling because gravity is drawing it towards the ground, or the ground is accelerating up to the ball, the ball and the ground will meet in the same way. You can call it Time dilation, or Light Dilation, it's all the same. It's not meant to be covered by those equations, but if it works, there's nothing saying that they can't :T. Using Equations and Ideas in ways they were never meant to be used is how progress is made.

I think the more important takeaway there is that going deep into the science is going to risk overwhelming the average reader with stuff they don't understand, and might also open up holes for people who do understand the topic in detail (since we're dealing with anomalous concepts here.) Deciding how much information to include can be difficult, but it's an important balance to strike.

Using Equations and Ideas in ways they were never meant to be used is how progress is made.

There's no guarantee that the average hobbyist reader will understand or even be interested in this though.

It's more of a math problem, You know that these two particles have a specific relationship, so if you know the state of one, you know the state of the other.

By definition, *the infornation bypass the speed of light*. You have entangled particle A and enragled particle B. You don't know, and in fact *cannot* know the state either one is in due to their state of superposition when unobserved. *They are trchnically in all possible states until forced into one upon being observed*. It's easier to think of it as a hidden value we don't know, but that's not the case. So when you collapse the state of one, the other one automatically collapses into the opposing state regardless of distance. This is why photons act as both particles *and* waves; they are in a form between wave and particle until observed by particle detectors or wave interference devices.

By collapsing into the opposing state, *information has fundamentally been transferred to the entangled particle as to what state it is in*. This is the violation of limits imposed by the speed of light- if our sun dissapeared, we wouldn't feel or know it until about 8 minutes after the fact. If a device was set up that could detect the sun poofing and would collapse it's part of two entangled particles, *we have just built a device capable of telling us about an event well before the universal constant tells us when we should be able to know about it.*

The speed of light isn't an actual constant, it is the relationship between The distance light travels and the time it does it in.

No, it is, due to the principles of the theory of relativity. It is called *the universal constant* for a reason. The speed of light remains a *constant speed* for all observers, regardless of their own velocity. What *might* change are the units involved- hours, fortnights, quiggles, but the velocity of light will be the same when you convert the units into one another. Regardless of how fast you go, you will *always* measure the speed of light as 299792458m/s. What *will* change is your experienced passage of time, AKA time dilation. And this is proven: *GPS Sattlelites need to compensate for their own time dilation in calculations for accurate reporting of your position on Earth*.

You could argue that Information is magically transferred between the two entangled particles, but unless you had access to both of the particles you would never be able to work out what that communication was, you could never use Quantum entanglement to violate the speed of light. What i mean by the speed of light changing instead of time and space changing is this. Say you have a box orbiting the earth with a photon bouncing off of two perfect mirrors. The way we measure time is by counting how long it takes this photon to bounce from one mirror to another. Now if there's two different boxes moving at two different velocities, you're going to get different values for this. You can then say that Velocity and Mass change Space Time, however that is only one way of looking at it. If you were to assume that Space and Time were Constant then it would be the travel of that photon affected by mass and velocity. In the end the result is the same, whether it is a straight line moving along a curved plane, or a curved line on a straight plane it's the same. TLDR in order for light to be constant, the ruler has to bend. However if the ruler is constant then light has to bend. The universe doesn't really care which way you look at it, either way you get the exact same results. Either Light is Constant and Space Time is not, or Space Time is constant and Light is not, Both of these are equally valid ways of understanding reality.

Look you probably have better things to do than argue with a madman. I'll think about this for a while and either convince myself I'm right or find out that I'm wrong. Don't follow me down my rabbit hole of madness and go do something else :T
