Item #: SCP-001-JP

Object Class: Thaumiel

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-001-JP and its pictures/images are to be contained in a standard secure locker at Site-19. Removal of SCP-001-JP or its pictures/images is limited to only when staff with security clearance level 5/001 get permission from O5 under Acquittal Protocol.

Application of Acquittal Protocol to all researchers has finished. This protocol is to be applied to new researchers after that.

Description: SCP-001-JP is an anomalous lamp. Anomalous natures have been not confirmed in the material constituting SCP-001-JP. The fuel space is filled with ectoplasmic solution consisting of Class-A ectomorphs. In an experiment, despite burning for one month, its fire showed no signs of extinction.

SCP-001-JP in the ignited state triggers a cognitohazardous effect to the person who views it (hereafter referred to as the subject). This cognitohazard also affects those who see its pictures/images. The subject will attempt to avoid mentioning the deaths caused by him or herself. If it is inevitable, the subject will use euphemism as much as possible1. As a secondary effect, there is a reduction of the burden on the mind of the subject due to the corresponding death event. However, it is concluded that this is not anomalous property by SCP-001-JP.

SCP-001-JP was found in a private house in the state of Texas in the USA. Initially it was contained as a lamp that would not burn out. However, after the job separation rate of the staff exposed to SCP-001-JP declined, the current anomalous property was found out.

Organizations that protect mankind from anomalous objects have existed all over the world from a time long ago. Although there has been numerous ways of protection, it is indispensable to gain knowledge of anomalies, and the processes inevitably include experiments using living human beings. These humans varies depending on times and regions such as criminals, slaves, different ethnic groups and so on. Nevertheless, it still largely eroded the mind of the researchers. Some person could not bear his sins and threw himself into the sea. Other person eliminated the distinction between life and death to keep his peace of mind, but then he killed his family due to a slight quarrel. I told to a lot of people repeatedly that these sacrifices lead to protecting the world. Such words are, however, only ad-hoc after all, and many people's hearts were broken.

But I found that lamp. The circumstances were coincidental, but its effect is noteworthy. Researchers have been able to study gruesome anomalies without breaking their hearts. As a result, their work efficiency dramatically increased, and the damage caused by the abnormities decreased in inverse proportion to it.

However, problems also arose. Those who abandoned their responsibility for death by themselves became heterogeneous in daily life where general morality exists. They had become impossible to live among the general public.

So I made a suggestion: should we contain anomalous people who protect mankind from anomalous objects? Many people opposed at first, but my plan steadily progressed by my hard persuasion. And we finally completed an organization that keeps those who paraphrase "death" as "termination" away from the general public. That is the Foundation of nowadays.

I still regret that people who join us to protect mankind from abnormalities are changed into abnormalities and contained as such. But still we must keep going until we find a better way than this method. We must always do our best.


Summary of Acquittal Protocol

The Acquittal Protocol is aimed at reducing the burden on researchers' mind caused by loss of personnel during the experiment. The researchers below 60 on Psychic Resistance Scale are to be exposed to the images of SCP-001-JP in the ignited state. This protocol also includes containing the subjects within the Foundation.
