Description: SCP-449 was discovered in a remote region of an undisclosed body of water in September of 19██. The object is of perfect geometrical sphere that is tinted purple. It is made of an unknown glass that is translucent. It is to be noted that a smoky gaseous substance is seen wafting inside of the orb, but the cause of movement is unknown. Those who have been in the vicinity of SCP-449 without proper safety suits have been noted to have a sharp increase in intellect and a massive increase in previous inactive brain cellular function. This includes but is not limited to areas suggesting astral projection, umbrakinesis and/or lumokinesis. Persons observed to handle SCP-449 on their own have been shown to have noticeable mood swings and an obvious reluctance to disengage from the object.
