** The fact that they designed procedure 110-Montauk means that whatever it is, it's the '''most''' humane way to achieve the needed result, and it's ''still'' too horrible to be described.

*** Incompleteness, or more specifically, the inability to complete something, and the futility in attempting to. This is often represented in instances as some variant of a "trembling core" which is further described as something that is observable, but not reachable or touchable, and is cold, dark, and silent. There are recurring visual analogies of the light and substance attempting to reach the darkness, but failing miserably. Another similar theme is the inclusion of a hidden antagonist or anathema who is never revealed, but is somehow behind the events described in the plot. Yet another very much related idea is the inability to complete a work, story, or game. [[ShapedLikeItself And, in general, use of ideas like these is very symbolic of SCP-2747 itself.]]

This makes any attempt to completely uncover the secrets of SCP-2747 futile. And that brings us all right back to this theme.]]

** To start with, it is an anti-narrative. When certain narremes are put together, they will form an instance of SCP-2747. At some point, the anti-narrative will be erased from all existence and record. However, the narremes can safely be used separately, which means that the Foundation can figure out the nature of the anomaly if they can identify the narremes used. The Foundation did this by viewing references to SCP-2747 instances. [[spoiler:It's also self-descriptive, so anything that sufficiently describes SCP-2747 is an instance of SCP-2747, and vice versa.]]

** SCP-173, at least I think, turns into a statue when observed. Maybe 187 saw what it looks like when NOT observed? Maybe it was too weird or too scary.

* The entry for SCP-1357 details how Agent Fredricks had his daughter kidnapped by staff at the amusement park he was investigating. His daughter was then repeatedly manipulated by the staff into thinking her parents did not love her anymore in an attempt to make her stay before finally [[spoiler: brainwashing her into becoming an employee at the park.]] For all we know, this has happened before and for who knows how long before the Foundation set up measure to prevent people entering the park. [[spoiler: How many staff are also children who have been brainwashed?]]

* It's stated in a note that SCP-2000 will not be used to alleviate humanity's violent and sociopathic tendencies. Why not? Because it's already been done before. ''[[HumansAreBastards Successfully.]]'' They're not doing it anymore because further behavioral modifications would severely undermine humanity's tenacity for survival and inhibit social and technological progress. And this is after it's established that resetting with SCP-2000 accidentally caused both World Wars. Yes, the two largest wars in history, along with all other conflicts, crimes, and violent occurrences since then? This is the ''minimum'' level of violence humanity needs to survive. What were we like before then?
