The Egyptians knew that only the magic of the pharaoh and the priests could carry out supernatural deeds and acts. It was thanks to that magic that the universal order was maintained. But its power could also help man to achieve his longed for desire.
The deceased had to be able to reach the world of the gods. If they thought he had gathered enough merits, they would grant him the much desired eternal life.
