Stargate SG-1: Season 9, Episode 3 “Origin”
Jackson: The central icon of the religion seems to be fire.
Vala: I don’t need a book to tell me that.
Jackson: That would make sense. Fire is light, energy, warmth. And yet on Earth at some point fire became associated with demonic imagery. Things that are evil. Hell not Heaven.
Jackson: I was wondering if the Ancients had something to do with that.
Vala: Tell you what. Why don’t we flip to the end and let’s see how it all turns out, hm?
Doci: Great holy armies shall be gathered and trained to fight all who embrace evil, in the name of the gods ships shall be build to carry our warriors out amongst the stars and we will spread origin to all the unbelievers. The power of the Ori will be felt far and wide, and the wicked shall be vanquished.
The Eye of Ra or Eye of Re is a being in ancient Egyptian mythology that functions as a feminine counterpart to the sun god Ra and a violent force that subdues his enemies. The Eye is an extension of Ra’s power, equated with the disk of the sun, but it also behaves as an independent entity, which can be personified by a wide variety of Egyptian goddesses, including Hathor, Sekhmet, Bastet, Wadjet, and Mut. The Eye goddess acts as mother, sibling, consort, and daughter of the sun god. She is his partner in the creative cycle in which he begets the renewed form of himself that is born at dawn. The Eye’s violent aspect defends Ra against the agents of disorder that threaten his rule. This dangerous aspect of the Eye goddess is often represented by a lioness or by the uraeus, or cobra, a symbol of protection and royal authority. As an apotropaic power, the Eye is often equated with the Eye of Horus, which in other cases is a separate concept.
The Eye of Ra was involved in many areas of ancient Egyptian religion, including in the cults of the many goddesses who are equated with it. Its life-giving power was celebrated in temple rituals, and its dangerous aspect was invoked in the protection of the pharaoh, of sacred places, and of ordinary people and their homes.
But more importantly it also allowed Anubis to destroy Abydos
