NOTE: THE FOLLOWING IS ARCHIVAL INFORMATION FOR REFERENCE ONLY.
THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO CONTAINMENT PROTOCOLS IN PLACE FOR SCP-8900-EX.
Item #: SCP-8900-EX
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-8900 has been designated Keter due to extreme difficulty in containment. Indeed, it does not appear containable at this time.
Persons and objects affected by SCP-8900 are to be quarantined and destroyed via flash incineration immediately. Flames resulting from this process are to be extinguished by vacuum in complete darkness to suppress the spread of infection. Under no circumstances are Foundation personnel to come into contact with persons or objects affected by SCP-8900.
Addendum 8900-1: It has been discovered that total darkness is effective in suppressing the spread of symptoms of SCP-8900 in living subjects. Agents Harker and Miriam have been detained and are being kept for study.
Description: SCP-8900 is a complex perceptual phenomenon affecting the visible spectrum which seems to be spread by contact. It can be photographed using certain newly developed techniques, however, the process of photographing the anomaly seems to result in faster spread of its effect, and is considered inadvisable.
SCP-8900 is currently uncontained and theoretically uncontainable. It first began to appear in the mid to late 1800s, as a side effect of certain photography techniques, but was restrained only to the photographic plates themselves and did not spread. Of note is that the appearance of SCP-8900 manifestations in these photographs seems to [REDACTED]elopment of photographic technology. SCP-8900 as we know it today seems to have developed in or around 1935, possibly as a result of the █████ Corporation's experiments with "integral tripack" ██████████ technology.
