Heaven and Hell

The Netherworld
"Ancient Mesopotamians conceptualized the netherworld as the cosmic opposite of the heavens and as a shadowy version of life on earth. Metaphysically, it was thought to lie a great distance from the realm of the living. Physically, however, it lay underground and is poetically described as located only a short distance from the earth’s surface." ~ from Ancient Mesopotamian Beliefs in the Afterlife by M. Choksi, June 20, 2014. Read the article.

Ancient Egyptian Beliefs in the Afterlife
Life After Death
"According to the Ancient Egyptians, the body was made up of several parts: the ba or soul, the ka or life force, and aj, the force of divine inspiration of life. To survive in the afterlife, the ka needed the corpse to remain intact, and that was only possible through technique of mummification."
