Season 4, Episode 17

Title: “Absolute Power”

Shifu
Shifu a True Harsesis Child

The transcript below is mainly between Shifu, a Harsesis Child, speaking to Doctor Daniel Jackson.  The background for this is, according to Jaffa legend, when the hosts of two Goa’uld mate and conceive a child, the offspring will be born with the genetic knowledge of the Goa’uld. This is strictly forbidden under Goa’uld law, and any such child lives under an immediate sentence of death.

One such child was born when the human hosts of the Goa’uld Apophis and his queen Amaunet conceived a boy who came to be known as Shifu. Daniel delivered this child on Abydos and then searched for him after he was taken by the Goa’uld to the planet Kheb. The baby boy was in the protective care of the Ascended Being Oma Desala when Daniel found him on Kheb and after Oma demonstrated that she could take care of the child better than he, Daniel appointed Oma as Shifu’s step-mother. Shifu later visited Abydos and Earth to learn more of his mother and told Daniel that Oma had buried the genetic memories deep into his subconscious because the evil was too great to resist. Shifu chose not to access those memories and asked that Daniel not seek the knowledge as well, but choose a different path. Shifu returned to Oma as an Ascended Being.

More importantly this exchange in conversation is truly about, “the story behind the story,” the, “message within the message.”  That which is hidden in plain view, but is not seen by the majority of those that witnesses it.  It is about the decision that Dr. Daniel Jackson makes to, “choose a new path,” and how he came to that determination.  What Dr. Daniel Jackson was shown in the dream is, “a way,” “a path,” other than the standard way and path that we have all been exposed to and programmed with.  It is the path of least resistance.  It is a path of non-combativeness, for it is the only way in which to win the battle and the war that goes on within one’s members of their conscious mind and subconscious.  To fight one’s own self, against one’s self, and thereby oppose one’s own self, truly is the mark of an insane individual, which is why JESUS/Imanuel referred to Peter as “Satan.”  What Shifu was pointing out to Dr. Daniel Jackson is where the real battle truly is… within, and not from external source or enemy such as what the Goa’uld appared to be.  This is the reason for this to be posted, for it is a excellent way of delivering a message with the construct of another message.  The question is, “Do you see and comprehend the message?”

 


 

Shifu:               She spoke to you through the Goa’uld hand device?

Dr. Jackson:   Yes.

Shifu:               She was strong.

Dr. Jackson:   In those moments as Amaunet tried to kill me, I felt as if I had lived a lifetime.

Shifu:               Like a dream.

Dr. Jackson:   Yes.

Shifu:               Dreams teach.

Dr. Jackson:   Sometimes… in this one I got the chance to say goodbye, and your Mother told me how important you were.

Shifu:               Oma teaches that the true nature of a Man is decided in the battle between his conscious mind and the desires of his sub-conscious.  Oma teaches that the evil of my sub-conscious is to strong to resist.  The only way to win, is to deny it battle.

Dr. Jackson:   You see the thing is, we can’t deny the battle against the Goa’uld forever.  The information contained within your buried memories could really help us.

Shifu:               You have chosen a path that leads to me because of this.

Dr. Jackson:   Yes.

Shifu:               You must release your own burden before you will find your own way again.

Dr. Jackson:   Yeah, someone else once said that to me… thing is, this is my way.  I chose this path to honor Sha’re’s strength, and ultimately it isn’t just about me, or you for that matter.

Shifu:               I understand.

Dr. Jackson:   The To’kra have a way for you to remember only certain things.  How Goa’uld technology works, their weaknesses, and then afterwards, maybe Oma can help you forget again.

Shifu:               If the instrument is broken, the music will be sour.

Dr. Jackson:   The music does not play the musician.

Shifu:               Normally there’s truth in that.

Dr. Jackson:   Really?  Good, because I really didn’t have any idea what I was talking about…  All I know is that this is very important, or I wouldn’t ask.

 

TIME INDEX:   37-minute and 9-second mark

Major Carter:  What did you do to Daniel?

Shifu:               Dreams sometimes teach.  I am teaching him.

Major Carter:  Teaching him what?

Shifu:               That the true nature of a Man is determined in the battle between his conscientious mind and his sub-conscientious, and that the evil of my sub-conscientious is to strong to resist.  [NOTE: One mind but having two forms, or two parts, or two levels, one of awareness, the other of lesser awareness]

Dr. Jackson:   The only way to win is to deny it battle.  [Recall the movie War Games, wherein the computer…  Joshua reached the same conclusion concerning a nuclear war.  “The only winning move is not to play.”]

Shifu:               As Oma teaches.

Dr. Jackson:   One of these days I’m gonna figure out that she’s worth listening to.

Major Carter:  What happened?

Dr. Jackson:   I was having a dream.

Major Carter:  About what?

Dr. Jackson:   That’s not really important.  The important thing is… it’s time I chose a new path.

Shifu:               And it is time for me to continue on mine.

Dr. Jackson:   Will I see you again?

Shifu:               All roads eventually lead to the great path.

Dr. Jackson:   Eventually.

Shifu:               Many cross on the way.
