Item #: SCP-521-KO

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedure: The Foundation's cover company has purchased the real-estate of SCP-521-KO and the civilian entry is strictly prohibited. A warning sign saying “No Entry. CAUTION. Slippery when wet.” in front of SCP-521-KO should be maintained. One member of security personnel is to be assigned to a small sentry post at the entrance of SCP-521-KO.

In case of a civilian entering SCP-521-KO and becoming trapped, the lighthouse of Site-64K is to shoot a strong beam of light toward the sea. Rescued civilians should be interrogated and released after being treated with Class C amnestics.

Description: SCP-521-KO is a jetty pointing towards the sea, located in Mujin City, South Jeolla Province, South Korea. It was built in 1970 as a piece of land art, and its wave breaking performance is nominal. The surface of SCP-521-KO is wet and usually soaked, and it is so slippery that walking on SCP-521-KO is difficult.

The anomalous effect of SCP-521-KO will manifest during either very foggy mornings or evenings. If any person climbs onto SCP-521-KO and walks towards the sea when the heavy fog rises, with nothing remaining within seeing distance, they will never reach the end of SCP-521-KO no matter how long they have walked. Additionally, after walking about 10m towards the sea, they cannot reach the opposite end of SCP-521-KO, i.e. cannot return to Mujin City. When there is high visibility, with no fog, this effect does not manifest. If the subject accesses SCP-521-KO from the sea using a ship or a helicopter, they can enter SCP-521-KO from the sea side even when it is foggy. But if they walk more than 10m, they cannot go back to SCP-521-KO's sea-sided end.

When any individual is trapped on SCP-521-KO and a strong source of light emits a beam of light from the sea or Mujin City, they can reach the side where the source of light origins from. Subsequently, if there is a high level of visibility in the direction of the sea or the city as the fog lifts, they can reach the visible side. Thus, if the individual is trapped on SCP-521-KO, all they have to do is wait until the fog clears.

However, if an individual does not stop to walk on SCP-521-KO, the fog will not clear. In a recent test, an individual on SCP-521-KO claimed that she walked for an entire day, while outside of SCP-521-KO only three hours passed. SCP-521-KO's sea-sided end has a brass plaque, and it's contents can be read easily through the access from the sea.

Seeing is more than a photon's collision on your retina. When what you see is different, the world will be different.
