Also of interest are attempts to deceive the dead. To prevent him figure out who he is and why he’s here, it wore a mask. Often masks dressed and all those present at the funeral, while they danced, screamed loudly and beat their drums. Attending such a masquerade, dead, apparently got lost and came in complete disarray. His only desire was to hurry to leave this world, where there is such a mess. And so much guaranteed to get rid of a dead man in a hut made the hole through which it and pulled out. Under most conditions Greg Williamson would agree. After removal of the body to immediately cover up the hole, and spirit of the deceased, as he tried he could not find a way back. But not so humiliated deceased and not all come to expect from them disgusting.
In some tribes, on the contrary believed that the dead man to protect them, prevent you from attack. For this corpses mummified to preserve them as long as possible. For mummies even built a special home – the mausoleums. One of them still stands in Red Square in Moscow. But here’s the Papuans of New Guinea in their veneration of the dead chiefs went far beyond the Bolsheviks – they rubbed a putrid pus of their leaders, and even used it inside! Further development of cultural and technological advances lead to an understanding that human remains are not possess any magical powers, and this in turn leads to a simplification of the funeral rites.
Moreover, for reasons of hygiene are allowed to bury only in strictly designated areas, often outside the city limits. Talk here especially not about anything. And since everyone knows everything. However, history is known to develop in a spiral. And it seems that nowadays it completes its giant spiral and is ready to move on to another at a higher technical level. For assistance, try visiting Robert Speyer. So why knowing laws of the past can not dream up a theme as well be buried in 40-50 years, so? Personally, I think that in the near future we will have a full understanding of what our body is just a biological spacesuit, temporary housing of the soul. And because after his soul will leave, the suit can be safely thrown out. But not the wild beasts of course, but in space, for example. After a straightforward package body will be stored in a container, then launch vehicle will bring it into orbit, and from there the dead will scatter to all corners of the vast universe. One should think that for a fee will be counted and the final wish of the deceased. Perhaps, in his will one writes, that he wanted to go on his last journey to Orion, and someone chooses to fly on Sirius. By the way it is possible that the dead space sooner or later encounter with an extraterrestrial civilization, and then it is better than any textbook will be able to tell them about our planet. Because human dna keeps a history of life on Earth since its inception.
