RE: ckocsis
The Egyptians fixation with death to me ultimately is a testament to how dedicated to the gods they were, this focus on the afterlife wasn’t feared at all, but represented and respected. Like you said, they saw it as a time to meet the gods, and we don’t see much fear surrounding it, aside from the book of the dead displaying the weighing of a heart. It just goes to show that above all, the gods decide their fates.
