Murray, 1987, Page 15). Perhaps the mentioned afterlife of Osiris in the Pyramids of Teti they may have come across, had been something the kings felt reassuring, as they had hoped the importance of their status in the physical world wouldn’t just decay in a tomb, but instead they could achieve an eternal life where the soul would keep governing the underworld. As previously mentioned, the Pyramids of Teti were one source, where the tale had been publicly displayed with carvings, regarding the afterlife and it was once a temple dedicated to Anubis, God of the dead before passing the title to Osiris. Ritual performances during this period were mainly consisted of funerary nature practice. The time and resources that had been gone into finding specific materials for the rituals, with some of the supplies being gold to be buried in the tomb alongside the corpse, we understand that we also
“I don’t think that you will find your father there, Satoshi-kun. He most likely has passed into the afterlife…or perhaps he ascended to nirvana.” “I will find him,” Satoshi insisted. “I know I will.” The beautiful Elementalist beside the loom stopped her work, before she knelt by Satoshi’s side and patted him on the head gently. “You are full of hope. It gladdens my heart to see that your heart is still pure and your mind is full of dreams.
There was a belief in the afterlife and it seemed as though everyone had a pre-determined purpose and past. It was thought to be vital that after death that you went to heaven.

The Never-ending Chase of a Never-ending Life Since the dawn of man, mankind has been intrigued by achieving a never-ending youthful life. The phenomenon of immortality can be observed in various forms of literature, as well as in mythology and myths, which have led both real and fictional characters to pursue the temptation of living forever. The ancient epos of Gilgamesh is not only the first known literary work in history, but also is the start of depicting the quest for immortality, befitting only immortal gods. According to the Sumerian/Babylonian creation story, Enuma Elish, the many polytheistic gods were created when the two origin gods, Apsu and Tiamat, mingled their respective salt and fresh waters together (Enuma Elish
Afterlife is such a mysticism subject just like the belief in GOD. Nobody that is alive today has seen GOD but yet people believe GOD did exist and some people believe God spirit is still with us today. Myself being a Christians do believe in an afterlife.

In result, from an early age, Gilgamesh is perceived to be a great and powerful ruler, but aside from being physically beautiful and strong, he disappoints his people in numerous ways. However, through wisdom, strength, intelligence and acceptance that mortality is unavoidable, Gilgamesh proves to his people and himself that he is the hero he was born to be. By possessing these traits, Gilgamesh truly embodies an epic hero. The first heroic quality that Gilgamesh possesses is wisdom, which he acquires throughout his journey. Although at the beginning of his story, he is anything but a heroic king, much changes when the gods create Enkidu, a man-beast, made to help Gilgamesh on his journey.
