According to some works, the soul goes on to heaven, while according to others, it is reincarnated. If the soul is found unworthy as it crosses the bridge to the afterlife, it slips down into hell where it remains. As in the other cultures mentioned, the spirits could return to the living because of impropriety in burial or funeral
It is an incense burner illustrating the satyr, Marsyas, flayed for a display of hubris. On the leg of Marsyas is the engraving “suthina” transforming it into a funerary offering and leading Art Historians to accept that it was not intended to for use by the living.

At the start of the story, he builds a mysterious mood to the forbidden land in the east by stating that there are spirits and demons roaming the area, which were all present since incipient generations (Pg. 141). Further in the story, he describes things in the Place of Gods that we, the readers could recognize, but that John could not; “the towers are not all broken … But the towers themselves looked blind for the gods are gone,” which we could make out as buildings without lights. He also hinted that, “everywhere in [the Dead Place] there are god-roads, though most are cracked and broken. Everywhere there are the ruins of the high towers of the gods,” (Pg.
All the poem is a single stanza though this stanza might be divided into three different parts: The first part goes from the first line “I had a dream, which was not all a dream” to “Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air” (line 5 of the poem “Darkness”) and narrates the beginning of Earth's extintion. The second part is mainly focused on the process of 'dehumanisation' of the people and the death and disparition of the human race from the Planet's surface. Besides, this part of the poem could be divided into two sections, going the first one from “Morn came and went -and came, and brought no day,” (line 6 of “Darkness”) to “Extinguish'd with a crash- and all was black.” (line 21 of “Darkness”) and the second one from “The brows of men by the despairing light” (line 22 of “Darkness”) to “Hissing, but stingless -they were slain for food.” (line 37 of “Darkness”). The third part of the poem portrays the complete destruction of the world, the victory of Darkness and the ending of everything and goes from “And War, which for a moment was no more” (line 38 of “Darkness”) until the end of the poem. By using this structure, Byron pretended to create a sensation of time passing away, from slow to fast.

Odysseus visits the underworld to consult the spirit of the Theban seer Tiresias, resembling Anchises in his prophetic role.

In Neolithic Period, from 7200 -6700 BC, Jericho people rebuilt the dead members’ skulls in a monumental scale using various materials and placed them on shelves as a means of remembering. It was also a form of ancestor worship. Move to Sumer, around 2500 BC, Sumerians buried the dead with a number of goods such as instruments. The bull-headed lyre was an example of the objects made of precious materials such as lapis lazuli, which meant to function the dead to act as they acted when they were alive and entertain them in the afterlife. For the Egyptians, the death and the afterlife were a major issue of elites.
Then you will be brought back to your Lord” (32:11). life, death, afterlife, hereafter, resurrection Life after Death Now one might wonder what happens to us after death; are we going to begin our lives in the hereafter right away, or we will experience a different temporary stage of life that lasts up until the Day of Judgment? Muslims get the information about this issue, through revelations received by the last Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH), in verses of Quran. Based on what has been revealed to our prophet, afterlife does not begin right after we die. Human beings will enter an intermediate world called “Barzakh” in which they would feel, see and hear everything in a different way; there would be things they enjoy and ones they suffer from, based on their deeds in this earthly life.
HISTORY According to some ancient societies, they interpret dream as supernatural communication or divine intervention which people with power only can unveil the meaning. Sumerians in Mesopotamia recorded the dream in a clay tablet and believed that one will leave his body and travel to another dimension which is dream world. In Eastern Mediterranean, people interpret dream as mantic or future predicting weather it is good or bad. Good dreams are from God while bad dreams are from demons.
