Item #: SCP-2729
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: As soon as a new instance of SCP-2729 or SCP-2729-# has been found, any and all civilian individuals believed to have knowledge of the anomalous properties of SCP-2729 should be located and amnesticized. Any information captured at a formation or active state of an SCP-2729-# location (imagery, video, audio, text, or otherwise) is to be destroyed or contained (based on its utility).
Should an I-Class Information Leak occur (the likelihood of which is significantly increased, due to the nature of SCP-2729), the DDF (Department of Disinformation and Falsification) is required to follow all internet knowledge, and contribute to the meme with obviously false videos detailing normal sinkholes creating edited in noise. Spread of disinformation should follow a similar pattern. Set of SCP-2729 discovered to be the origin of information leak should be filled and neutralized.
No more than 5 SCP-2729-# instances should be allowed at one time. Upon the creation of a new SCP-2729-# instance, satellite imagery detailing the holes should be modified, and a perimeter of fence should be set up, marking private property. A temporary research site should be erected, and the pattern of notes must be documented before termination of the anomaly.
Description: SCP-2729 is a natural phenomenon which can occur in earthen areas once winds exceed 60 knots. Beyond this, no discernible pattern for SCP-2729 instances has been observed. The phenomenon is the rapid creation of bottle shaped sinkholes, with small openings that widen into cylindrical holes with slightly curved bottoms. All sinkholes created in such an event are between 10 and 20 meters away from any other given sinkhole. Classifications of the different parts of SCP-2729 are as follows:
- SCP-2729: The event of a creation of SCP-2729-#.
- SCP-2729-#: A set of sinkholes created by SCP-2729. Alphabetical classification marks the chronological order of discovery (SCP-2729-1 was the first set of sinkholes discovered.)
- SCP-2729-#-#: A single sinkhole. Numerical order designates which sinkholes were created first (SCP-2729-1-1 was the first sinkhole created by SCP-2729 within its first set of sinkholes discovered.)
As long as SCP-2729-# exists, and winds exceed 60 knots, SCP-2729-# will repeat patterns of musical notes by rapidly changing the interior of SCP-2729-#-#. All notes to date have been in the chromatic scale, except for a muted note occasionally made by various sinkholes. When a sinkhole is not making noise, it will close up, but will reactivate under favorable conditions. As soon as winds dip below 60 knots, all motion of the sinkholes will cease. SCP-2729-# instances left alone will display anomalous properties every time winds exceed 60 knots in the area, repeating the similar patterns of notes1. Filling approximately 20% of the empty space within an SCP-2729-#-# completely will dispel all anomalous properties tied to the entire SCP-2729-# instance.
SCP-2729-# instances respond to outside actions, particularly auditory stimuli. Nearby sources of noise may influence the patterns of notes that SCP-2729-# instances produce. Due to the responses by SCP-2729-# instances, there is a possibility that the phenomena might be sentient. Further research has been done in various attached documents.List of Instances & Related Behaviors:
