재단 팟캐스트에 오신 걸 환영합니다.
welcome to the foundation

이 방송은 이제 막 만들어진 팟캐스트로, 이번이 001회차입니다.
this is episode zero zero one since this is a brand new podcast

제가 이 방송에서 무엇을 하는 것인지 설명을 좀 드려야겠군요.
I feel like you deserve a bit of an explanation for what I'm doing here

전 SCP 재단 세계관에서 한 가지 주제를 골라서 깊이 파고들어 보려 합니다.
I'll doing a deep dive on a particular topic from the SCP foundation

이번 1회에서는 SCP-001에 관한 이야기를 하게 될 것 같은데요, 방송을 하고 있는 현재 총 17개의 서로 다른 SCP-001 제안서들이 있군요.
episode one will perhaps appropriately discuss SCP 001 as of this broadcast there are 17 different proposals for SCP 001

에덴동산을 지키는 문의 수호자부터, 여러 변칙적 물체들이 나열되어 있을 뿐인 단순한 문서 모음집까지.
they range from the guardian of the gates of Eden to a simple collection of documents detailing various anomalous objects

복수의 SCP-001이 가능하다는 개념은 공동작업 글쓰기 사이트에 반드시 필요한 기저 사실을 반영하는 것이기도 하죠.
the concept of multiple possible SCP 001s at its core reflects a basic fact of necessity with regards to a collaborative writing site

설정이 따로 없다는 사실 말입니다.
there is no canon

이하의 파일들은 관리자의 명령으로 최고 기밀로 분류되었습니다
the following files have been classified top secret by order of the administrator

전체 공지 001-알파: SCP-001의 일부 항목은 관련되는 정보의 유출을 방지하기 위하여 거짓으로 작성되었다.
general notice 001 alpha in order to prevent knowledge of SCP 001 from being leaked

SCP-001에 관한 모든 자료는 허위 정보와 진짜 정보를 막론하고
several false SCP 001 files have been created alongside the true file or files

정신적으로 살해시킬 수 있는 장치로 보호되어 있어 승인 없이 개인적으로 자료에 접근하려 할 경우 정신자적 살해 물질에 의해 심장 마비로 죽게 된다.
all files concerning the nature of SCP 001 including the decoy or decoys are protected by a memetic kill agent designed to immediately cause cardiac arrest in any non-authorized personnel attempting to access the file

일반인에게 SCP-001의 실체를 공개할 경우 처단된다.
revealing the true nature or natures of SCP 001 to the general public is cause for execution

이 자료에 대한 접근을 승인받지 않은 모든 인원은 베리먼-랭포드 정신자적 살해 물질에 의해 제거됩니다
any non-authorized personal accessing this file will be immediately terminated through varium and langford memtic kill agent

올바른 예방접종 없이 아래로 스크롤을 내리면 즉시 심장 마비로 죽을 수 있습니다.
scrolling down without proper mimetic inoculation will result in immediat cardiac arrest followed by death

경고했습니다.
you have been warned

이 사이트를 진지한 걸로 착각하고 정신자 살해 인자에 대해 정말 걱정을 하시는 분들이 있는데, 저도 지금 그 그림을 보고 있고 아주 완벽히 멀쩡합니다.
for those of you take the site a little too seriously and who are worried about memtic kill agents I'm looking at the image right now and I'm perfectly fine

그러니 스크롤을 내려 보도록 하죠. 그럼 001 후보들이 나올 겁니다.
so scroll down a bit further and you ll come across the list of possible 001s

사이트의 극초기에는 두 개의 제안밖에 없었습니다.
in the earlies days of the site there were just 2

조너선 볼과 기어스 박사의 제안,
Jonathan bal and Dr gears proposal

서류 더미와 프로토타입 말이죠.
the seaf of papers and the prototype

서류 더미는 다양한 SCP들이 설명되어 있는 문서들의 뭉치입니다.
the sheaf of papers is a set of documents which detail various scps

그 문서들을 읽으면 세상에 새로운 SCP가 나타나고, 또 읽으면 설명된 대로의 새로운 SCP가 나타납니다.
as the papers are red new object apper in the world read it again and new object is detailed and appears in the world

이건 SCP 재단 메타픽션의 초기 형태라고도 할 수 있겠는데요.
this is one the earlier examples of metafiction SCP foundation writings

문서들 자신이 자기 주위의 세계를 지탱하는 토대를 스스로 만들어낸다는 게 핵심입니다.
it essentially creates an underpinning for the world based around the documents themselves

이걸 001로 받아들이신다면 사이트에 SCP를 쓰는 행위가 곧 SCP를 창조하는 것이라는 말을 듣는 것과 같겠죠.
if you consider this as your 001 then the act of writing an SCP on the site could be said to be the act which creates the object

순환적이지만, 간단합니다.
its circular but its simple

그 개념을 딱히 진지하게 탐구하는 것도 아니고, 그냥 독자가 알아서 그 느낌을 받아들이도록 내버려 두고 있습니다.
doesn't relly explore the concept in any serous way leaving it instead to the reader to understand the implications

거의 10년 전에 쓰여진 것이니, 그럴 만도 하죠.
in that way it's reflective of the time in which it was written nearly a decade ago

프로토타입의 경우에는 이름 그대로 프로토타입인데, 비슷한 문제를 더욱 원초적으로 보여줍니다.
the prototype true to its name faces the same problem in an even more basic way

이건 어떤 내용을 전달하는 문서의 프로토타입이고, 프로토타입인 만큼 그 형식이 비표준적이며 본질적으로 원시적입니다.
its a prototype document with the information delivered in a non-standard and essentially primitive format

이게 쓰여졌을 당시에는 SCP 문서의 형식이 그렇게 확립되지 않았음을 방증하는 측면이죠.
when it was written what youve come to expect as an SCP articles format wasnt set in stone

보다 중요한 건, 그 문서가 전달하는 내용이 그래서 그냥 괴물이란 겁니다.
most importantly the article describes a generic monster

별다른 서사구조도, 깊은 속뜻도 없습니다. 그냥 사람 잡아먹는 괴물이요.
theres no real narrative structure or deeper meaning. its a monster that eats people

그래서인지 이 프로토타입은 제안서들 중 최저 점수를 기록하고 있습니다. 거의 10년 동안 평가를 받은 결과가 그래요.
and for those reasons and more its one of the lowest rated proposals on the site despite having nearly a decade to generate upvotes

now I'm not going to go over each of the remaining proposals in any kind of depth I don't have the time you don't have the attention.

instead were going to discuss a couple of the more popular ones and one which is my own personal favorite

the gate guardina by dr. clef is one of the popular 001 proposals its also the third in order

the Gate guardian is one of the first site balances with the end of the world

the object is at its most basic level the entity that guards the gates of the Garden of Eden

the story of the Garden joins together Babylonian Sumerian and Abraham Mayock myths and gives a piece a bit of weight

while its mostly based around the version bescribed in the book of Genesis

the piece itself pays lip service to the earlier Babylonian texts upon which the biblical Genesis account is based the piece shows the foundation attempting to examine and eventually destroy the Guardian it gives it credit for the Indian Ocean tsunami and sends both Cain and Abel to interact with it

heavy expungement makes it hard to really understand everything going on up to that point but its generally assumed to be bad

then comes the crux of the piece the end of the world the foundation receives a message from itself

initiate emergency procedure Pathos omega attention all foundation personnel SCP 001 has left its location the gate is open they are riding forth the Lord reigns the Lord has reigned the Lord shall reign forever the Lord he is God the Lord he is God the Lord he is God here o Israel the Lord our God the Lord is one

Because of this event's confluence with the recent breach of SCP-995, the opening of SCP-616, and the activation of SCP-098, the Foundation is required to immediately begin preparations for an XK-class end-of-the-world scenario. SCP-076 and SCP-073 are to be secured immediately. All personnel are to unlock and decode Emergency Order Patmos-Omega, and follow all orders within. Site 19 is to be secured, and all nonessential SCPs and personnel terminated and/or destroyed. Repeat SCP-076 and SCP-073 @re to be secured immediately Cain and Abel my two sons, I amcoming all personnel are to unlock and decode behold SIGNAL LOST

the piece ends by communicating to the reader that none of this has happended yet

all the details the breaches the activations none have hactually occurred

the timestamp on the message is from the future

this helps build dread in the reader and most importantly gives the illusion that this could be their own reality maybe the foundation is real and in the background and this will be how the world ends

Kate McTiriss' one is a vinyl record containing Esquivel's 1958 album Exploring New Sounds in Stereo. The album has an anomalous impact on digital numerical lists that contain it. The album, when listed in text saved digitally, will always be listed first, even if it was intended to be listed in another position

often the best way to explore a concept is to avoid over complication

Kate McTiriss's Proposal takes a simple concept and explores the extremes it could bring about

in this proposal anything listed in the 001 slot becomes objectively true but the writer of the passage you just heard doesn't know that all they know is they've got this album that will automatically move itself to the number one slot

its barely serious enough on its own to merit a listing the document writer creates it and it moves itself to the number one slot automatically and nothing changes because everything in the document was already true the article slowly evolved from there because the first iteration contains a typo its fixed but nothing serious comes of it then April 1st comes our intrepid document writer decides to play a short prank and edits in that level to researchers at the site are to give her five dollars

she has no expectation that this will occur but it does three hours later she edits it back out as one might do in this situation when they freak out and realize that people are just giving her five dollars for no reason then later that night she tests something she adds a line saying her desk nameplate is green and it turns green now she understands what she can do with this power and no one else has noticed the next day she edits in her availability will be limited over the next week due to the paid vacation shes been granted and she takes a week off when she returns she edits it again making yourself co-director of the site lets stop for a moment and examine the basic escalation here a normal person
