When studying the Ancient Egyptian culture, people should know that it developed and flourished many years ago and it was ended with Cleopatra’s death who was the last ruler that belongs to Ptolemaic. Nowadays, this culture is well-known for its amazing monuments that celebrated the triumph of its rulers and honored gods. Some people misunderstand it by being obsessed by death, but they are wrong.
Basically, this culture was quite life-affirming, but it failed to make the same significant impression as such ancient cultures as Rome and Greece. If to consider the mummies and tombs left by ancient Egyptians, it’s hard to conclude that they were obsessed with death. That’s because they just wanted to continue their life after death, so all of their ancient mummies, temples, and tombs are all about the celebration of life and seeking eternity.
Besides, religion was an important part of the daily lives of all ancient Egyptians, and they called themselves as co-labors with Gods. Their myths had their valid structure that includes a number of gods, such as Atop, Atum, Seth, and others. It’s worth mentioning their concept of the soul because ancient Egyptians believed that it consisted of 9 basic elements. Their real names were kept secret, so all of them were known by their nicknames. They created their mummies to preserve their physical bodies because they believed that their souls couldn’t achieve mortality with that. Such gods as Ka and Khat were created to unable people’s journey to the other world after their death.
In terms of the daily lives and cultural advances of ancient Egyptians, it’s worth noting the papyrus, which was one of the greatest and most popular technological advances in this culture. They are also responsible for the development of lever, ramp, and geometry for different construction purposes in addition to certain advances in astronomy and mathematics. Most of these achievements were used in the construction of their famous pyramids and temples.
In conclusion, the Ancient Egyptian culture is also characterized by certain improvements in agriculture and irrigation and other important fields, such as aerodynamics, ship building, wheel, and medicine. There were no religious proscriptions against dissecting people’s bodies, so doctors got a clearer understanding of organs and their functions in this region.
