Stargate: Instructional videos by Daniel Jackson

Hello, I'm Dr. Daniel Jackson and behind me is a stargate.
Found in Giza, Egypt in 1928, we now know it was originally built millennia
ago by an alien race who we call the ancients.
Over the next few hours will be touching on some of the things you need to know about
the stargate, and how it works.
There are thirtynine symbols representing star constellations as seen from earth,
capable of transporting people, objects,
hundreds of thousands of lightyears via an interstellar wormhole.
Within the milky way galaxy a seven symbol address is used.
The first six symbols lock down a point in space, while the seventh represents the point of origin.
When a connection is made between two stargates an unstable energy vortex emerges from the gate,
and settles in the eventhorizon, or puddle, as we like to call it.
Later it was discovered that using an eight symbol would actually dial another galaxy.
It is believed an unprecedented amount of power is required to reach the mythical nine chevron destination.
Icarus base was established on a planet discovered two years ago, to have a uniquely powerful core
made of the mineral naquadria.
The entire purpose of the project is to hopefully one day dial the nine chevron address found
in the ancient database.
Hi, I'm Dr. Daniel Jackson.
Now you've heard the term hyperspace for years in sci-fi movies and television shows,
but what does it really mean?
Well, basically we live our lives in three dimensions plus time.
That's another dvd...
Hyperspace, also called subspace is another dimension, in which certain laws of physics like
the speed of light or the effects of relativity don't apply.
Now by entering hyperspace, a ship can travel vast distances at many times the speed of light,
and return to normal space once it reaches it's destination.
The actual math of how it all works is still highly classified, and I'm not completely sure
I understand it myself,
but it's how most advanced races get around the galaxy when they're not using a stargate.
Hi, I'm Daniel Jackson.
The ancients were once a race of humans known as Alterans.
They left their galaxy to avoid a war with another race of humans called the Ori.
They flew to the milky way millions of years ago and first landed on the planet Dakara.
From there they made their way to Earth, which they would call home for some time.
The ancients are the inventors of the stargates, and much of the advanced technology
that was later usurped and used by the goa'uld to enforce their rule.
Prior to that the ancients left for pegasus, and then ultimately some of them return to
the milky way, where it is believe they used their knowledge to restart human life as we know it on earth.
At some point they evolved both physically and mentally to the point where they no longer required
their human bodies, which brings me to my next topic.
My name is Dr. Daniel Jackson.
Ascension is an extremely advanced evolutionary process whereby the human consciousness becomes
pure energy, and actually rises to a higher plane of existence.
While it take several thousand years of evolution for humans to reach the point where they can
attain the state of being naturally,
a less evolved person can actually be Ascended by other ascended beings.
In fact, it happened to me once.
I have little memory of it now but i can tell you ascension comes with a much greater understanding
of the universe and forces of nature within it.
The power that comes with that knowledge is potentially dangerous if misused, as we have seen with the Ori.
It is for this reason that the ascended ancients now have a strict rule about non-interference in our human existence.
I could go on about that, but we would probably have to get another tape.
Hi, I'm Dr. Daniel Jackson.
When we first stepped through the stargate over a decade ago we found that the galaxy was dominated
by a race of beings known as the goa'uld. A parasitical snake-like creature which burroughs
in to the body of a human host and takes complete control.
It was the goa'uld Ra, who Jack O'Neill and I defeated on the very first mission through the stargate.
Ra, along with many others of this kind had posed as an ancient Egyptian god, in order
to enslave a transplanted human population.
In fact the identity, iconography and wardrobe of pretty much every ancient god in human history
has been purloined by the goa'uld to dominate and enslave humans on other planets for thousands of years.
That is until Stargate Command along with the allies of earth managed to defeat the goa'uld
in the early twenty-first century.
I'm Dr. Daniel Jackson.
The Lucian Alliance is an organization of humans from a number of sovereign planets who have
taken control of the resources and technology left behind after the goa'uld were defeated.
Not unlike the mafia, or street gangs from our own fair planet, the alliance is made up of
power-hungry criminals who use violence as a means of enforcing their dominion.
Leadership is tenuous and constantly changing, but the association itself is formidable and
must be taken seriously.
They control a sizable army and numerous ha'tak vessels, or former goa'uld motherships,
as well as a fleet of smaller gliders and bombers.
The Lucian Alliance is also known for insuring the servitude of less fortunate followers
through the distribution of an addictive corn like food crop known as Kassa.
