Blending, also called implantation, is the process of a Goa'uld or Tok'ra symbiote mentally joining with a host. The blending allows the host mental access to the knowledge of the symbiote, an abundance of which could potentially overwhelm the host. The Goa'uld and the Tok'ra have different methods of blending. The Goa'uld prefer to enter the host through the neck, not wanting to remember the host's fear in their eyes when entering. The Tok'ra, finding the scars left by the Goa'uld's method unnerving, enter the host through the mouth. (SG1: "Children of the Gods", "The Tok'ra, Part 2")
