What is SCP? Where did it originate?
SCP is a series in which science-fiction and horror are blended together.
The abbreviation “SCP” derives from the title of the series: “Secure, Contain, Protect”. The stories center around acquiring or keeping anomalous items safe from the public eye and those who might use them for harm. We do this by forcing people who possess such objects to keep hold of them for their entire lives, or trapping said objects in a permanent sculpture with us – whichever one’s easier to make.
I’m honestly not sure, you’re likely better off asking SCP themselves here: http://scp-wiki.net
You can read a much longer answer with plenty more detail about the origin of SCP on their wiki. The long and short of it is that it’s a creative writing website where people come together to tell horror stories.
SCP is an acronym that stands for Secure, Contain, and Protect. The creator of the founding document, Dr. Isaac Mann (1914-1998), was among a group of researchers assembled by the US government to research anomalous items and entities following a series of higher-profile consequences in 1967 – 1968 that included GoI-001 “The Blues Elders” as well as nearly 50% loss of continent landmass.
It’s been used primarily for containing Foundation assets or hazardous SCPs after they were found to contain either anomalies deemed too dangerous to exist in our world without at least some type containment or organizations such as GOI-999 “Such Interesting People” who have begun to manipulate reality on a systemic level.
It first appeared around 2000, but it had been in development since the 50’s. The GoI-001 incident was the final straw that got people on board for assembling SCP to contain anomalies and SCPs as needed.
SCP-2000 is a conceptual foundation of an old document. It originates from close to the beginning of time, but it was in written form only in the 1950s.
It’s hard to believe that this timeless document could reach far back into our history and still be relevant today, but 2000 years after first being handed down to us by wise scholars and spiritual leaders, SCP-2000 still has something important and truthful for each one of us. The spirit behind this document hasn’t been watered down through time; instead – like wine – as the centuries have passed, its true wisdom has only gotten better with age.
The SCP (Secure Commerce Protocol) is a data security protocol designed to protect mobile communication. It was developed in the 1990s and patented by a company called Level 3 Communications in 2012.
In 1993, Peter Mudge unexpectedly resigned from IBM Corp., presumably as a result of transferring his pension plan to another retirement scheme with British Telecom in 1991, while holding about 25000 shares of IBM stock. Bearing a grudge against IBM for shutting off his retirement benefits while he had been employed there since 1976, Mudge devised schemes that, according to US federal court records prosecuting him and two others in 1996-1997 and ultimately incarcerating him from 1995 until 2004, after which he was deported back to England.
The Secure Control Panel is a software-based User Interface that allows the user to “secure their world” and maintain peace. It was created by Jonny James Eymond in order to help protect people from accidental traumatic shock caused by memories of terrible things happening.
SCP is a universal way of warning yourself and others of what might happen if you make certain choices. For example, in some states such as California, using rollerblades on paved surfaces or rails is illegal without safety equipment such as helmets, kneepads, elbow-pads etc., because many Americans have had the experience where they themselves got hurt while using such items when they were not paying attention or being mindful about this dangerous possibility. Thus SCP can be used as a warning to others that going into places with rollerblades can be dangerous and hurtful.
This is a website where people can come and create their own art, stories, and collections of information. Anyone may submit content to the site, which is then evaluated by the staff before being approved for use.
A lot of really great stuff has been created on this site already- and you don’t even need anything fancy to watch them! You can head over to http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/local–files-datta and see what’s up now!
The SCP Foundation was started in 2008 as an online creative collective dedicated to exploring whether video artists could be engaged in developing narratives that are interesting, accessible, educational or entertaining while utilizing promotional details from actual uncontained subjects of the SCP Foundation.
The SCP, according to the organization’s website, specializes in “weird and unusual creatures”. While it is not affiliated with any government S.C.P. has been known to capture and contain anomalous animal species on behalf of governments or private individuals.
The SCP Foundation is notable for archiving information related to unidentified real-world phenomena, mainly targeting objects that pose a possible threat to the world at large should they be exposed as having come from an alternate universe (or dimension) or being an entity that existed since before Earth’s formation. It also targets animate entities that are either highly intelligent or very powerful, none of which have yet been observed by the public at large. Its main purpose isn’t limited to containing – some SCPs have been known to have useful qualities – but the majority of its contents are either dangerous or useless.
SCP is an abbreviation for Special Containment Procedures.
The SCP coding system is the one used by the modern Foundation and original Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States government in their official documentation to identify and contain anomalous artifacts, locations, entities, and phenomena that pose a threat to global security. The acronym represents “Special Containment Procedures”. It may also include various formerly classified codes from defunct governments around the world.
SCP stands for Secure, Contain, and Protect. It originated from a web game created to get people interested in science fiction writing.
The Foundation is not currently known for anything related to the number three. Until this discovery, it was believed that the only SCP objects present at Site 19 were SCP-1020 (a package of germinated seeds) and the bulk of the biological hazards held in Sector 4’s Biological Research Laboratories. The new information suggests that there may be more than one type of sentient being contained at Site-19. Further research is required to identify any other instances related to this anomaly if they exist.
However, it has been speculated that if a specimen exists then it must not be an ordinary SCP object as we would know it. It must be an SCP-001 listed anomaly and therefore not known to the Foundation at all. This unknown SCP is likely the cause of SCP: Containment Breach as well as other unexplained containment breaches or failures on record.
