Item No: SCP-7156

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-7156 is to be kept in a standard containment chamber at Section 197 at Site-UA-80. Access to experiments with SCP-7156 is possible with the permission of an employee with the third or higher level of clearance. SCP-7156 is only allowed to be read by D-Class personnel who are test subjects. All SCP-7156-2 are to be monitored for the duration of the SCP-7156-1 effect. Currently, the physical existence of SCP-7156-0 is considered impossible. MTF "Legend Makers" is to monitor mentions of SCP-7156-0 on the Internet and check them for signs of the existence of duplicates of SCP-7156.

Description: SCP-7156 is a copy of Martin Gardner's book "The Null-Party Professor" in Ukrainian. The cover of SCP-7156 reads "██████ █████"1. The text of the book is found to contain ██ grammatical errors, also instead of the Ukrainian letter "є" it uses the symbol "€".

SCP-7156-1 is an anomalous effect that occurs in a subject who reads at least 80% of SCP-7156; a subject exposed to SCP-7156-1 is hereinafter referred to as SCP-7156-2. Under the influence of the SCP-7156-1 effect, the subject of SCP-7156-2 becomes obsessed with the idea of assembling a surface that has zero (0) sides, and is hereinafter referred to as SCP-7156-0. Some subjects of SCP-7156-2 report that they "have a hard time imagining what SCP-7156-0 should look like and how it can be done." In approximately 90% of cases, the effect of SCP-7156-1 is manifested in the fact that the subject of SCP-7156-2 will attempt to create SCP-7156-0 from paper, cloth and other materials, or justify the theoretical possibility of creating SCP-7156-0. In approximately 10% of cases, the subject of SCP-7156-2 will attempt to prove the impossibility of the creation and existence of SCP-7156-0.

It has also been observed that after being exposed to SCP-7156-1, subjects of SCP-7156-2 acquire knowledge of the existence and feasibility of creating surfaces such as the Möbius Strip, the Klein Bottle, and the Projected Plane2. SCP-7156-2 is sometimes referred to as SCP-7156-0 as "Slyapinarski's Sheet", where Professor Slyapinarski (hereinafter referred to as SCP-7156-W) is the protagonist of the story "The Null-Sided Professor", who, according to the text of SCP-7156, discovered and first created SCP-7156-0. It has also been observed that some subjects of SCP-7156-2, under the influence of SCP-7156-1, attempt to clarify or correct the definitions of terms such as "surface", "surface side" and "number of sides".

Tests show that the effect of SCP-7156-1 lasts for 7 to 10 days, after which disappears may disappear or go into a latent phase (see Incident INC-079-000X). Treatment of SCP-7156-2 with Class-A amnestics with the erasure of any information about SCP-7156 will result in the premature complete cessation of the effect of SCP-7156-1.

Below are the protocols of selected experiments with SCP-7156.
