The Keeper, the leading inhabitant of P7J-989, described himself as "the keeper of all that is around you, all that is, and all that might be." He deceived the population of his planet, keeping them from learning the truth that their previously uninhabitable world had regenerated into a fertile garden. He created the unique environmental design that enabled the inhabitants to survive, maintaining the Residents in suspended animation in virtual reality devices which used experience and imagination as entertainment. SG-1 became entrapped in the devices, repeatedly reliving past moments of their lives for the entertainment of the Residents.
