Object Class: Alpha

Containment Protocols: RPC-224 is to be contained in a simple envelope within a locker at site-002. Any testing is to be done with headphones in windowless rooms, monitored over cameras with muted footage. Any testing done elsewhere should be considered an auditory hazard and punishment will follow to perpetrators. Any personnel able to hear 224 should close their eyes until any other personnel are able to stop 224.


Manuscript for Act 2 song 8: The Magic Circle of Infinity

Description: RPC-224 is a CD of George Crumb's Makrokosmos 1. The anomalous activity begins in act 2 song 8, titled "The Magic Circle of Infinity". The subject listening to the song will start bending all physical structures in sight. Once the piece starts playing, it loops continuously, until the CD is stopped. Any damage done is permanent, even with the disruption of the piece.

Experimentation has concluded any material in a structure stared at for more than 5 seconds will be warped in a clockwise direction, with thin structures warping quicker than denser structures. Skinny structures like poles simply bend while structures like walls warp in a swirling motion. For a living creature, prolonged exposure1 is required for anomalous properties to occur, with approximately 40% of subjects surviving with extreme and permanent spine damage, and approximately 60% dying later from internal bleeding.

Discovery: RPC-224 was originally discovered on the Greek island ████████, where local police responded to a report a violent murder on a remote part of the island2. After the police discovered 224's anomalous properties, embedded agents recovered 224 and administered amnesiacs to all people relevant. A letter was delivered to Site-002 one day after 224 was contained. The letter was addressed to the Authority and signed by someone under the alias Schoenberg from L'istituto della vera arte3.
