Purpose: To observe the effect of physical stress as it is experienced across each instance of SCP-2231, and if that response extends to POI-2231-1.
Procedure: SCP-2231-1 was exposed to the Foundation standard battery of stress eliciting stimuli including optional high threshold thermal testing. The responses of SCP-2231-2 and -3 were monitored simultaneously within their separate containment units. The response of POI-2231-1 was observed remotely by Foundation field personnel.
Results: Total time for completion of testing battery is 11 minutes 21 seconds. SCP-2231-2 and -3, both confined to their containment cells, showed significant stress responses and agitation as SCP-2231-1 undergoes the test procedure. Notable response symmetry includes pupil dilation, sweating, shivering and generalized adrenal response as the battery progressed. The only asymmetry in response occured when neither SCP-2231-2 nor -3 demonstrated muscle stretch reflex responses during portion 4A of the testing battery. Approximately 90 seconds after the cesation of testing the stress response is no longer evident in SCP-2231-2 or -3, although SCP-2231-1 followed the typical stress cesation pattern for non-anomalous humans over the next 45 minutes.
POI-2231-1 showed no reaction at any point during this experiment.
Conclusions: The mental connection between SCP-2231-1, -2, and -3 extends to include visceral experience of any physical sensation which the other instances are subject to. The mechanism by which this sensory & emotional data is integrated with the first person experience of each instance is unclear, given how each instance is capable of autonomous action (walking, talking, performing basic maintenance of life functions) completely independent of other instances.
The lack of reaction by POI-2231-1 suggests an asymmetric anomalous experiential link between the instances of SCP-2231 and POI-2231-1. The standard battery of stress eliciting stimuli is intentionally designed to elicit autonomic responses in subjects, suggesting that, if POI-2231-1 has any appreciation for the experience of SCP-2231 instances, that link is significantly muted compared to the anomalous link of the SCP instances.
