ROFL pretty pricey yup!  How about being buried with the Book of Dead.  Totally understand all the comments but I sill would love to be mummified.  I can still bring my statues with me in my coffin that would be like Pharaohs.  They are our human gods not to be pessimistic but I would like to emulate them in the best way possible.  I guess just like our ancient siblings of our faith burial practices would be ok in modern times.  I just don't know about cremation it sounds to much like India but if you want to Netjer would understand. Follow human Gods lead the Pharaohs back when our gods ruled the Earth long live the Pharaohs of Earth. Our gods had PHD's, lavish taste, and gave us the prime example of believing in the Afterworld long live the Pharaohs of Earth again. Nekhtet Netjer!!!:-) Love you big Divinity for giving us the sons and daughters of Rah and you. Kings and Queens.  Thanks for all the comments I feel very Afterworldish as of now.  I can't wait to see what the Pharaohs and priest have prepared for us it has to be so epic since they are the center of everything we have today. Plus they are the center of everything in the Future it has to so awesome in the Afterworld.  Thanks again everyone you guys gave me a Kemetic faith boost. Love my KO siblings.

I'm fairly certain that no ancient nisut was ever awarded a PhD.

A doctoral degree; the final, highest academic degree in most fields. It wasn't invented until the middle ages.

There education level would be translated to a PhD in modern times.  They were the top of their knowledge in their time.  You can't have today without yesterday.  Sorry for the vague translation.

If you or anyone else here has a question about what is really involved with modern funeral practices, please ask. I would even be happy starting a thread for it, if enough people were interested.

I'm actually not sure the pharaohs WERE the top-tier educated. They were educated to run the country, of course, but I don't think they were usually PhD-level in any one field. They didn't need to be.

Aahhhh I see. Thanks! :)
I decided that whether I will be mummified or not, I'll take my amulets with me. And perhaps the picture of the only human friend I've got. At least for now.

Mummified fish....I am trying so hard not to think of lox right now. :|

If it helps, I remember reading somewhere on a blog quoting a scholarly paper that the logic behind mummification wasn't so much to preserve the physical body as it was to transform it into an amulet to represent the person.  To that end, I wonder if one of those headstones where you can get a picture/likeness of the person etched onto it could probably do the same thing, for less cost and with less specialty/easier to find locally.

There will probably be photos of you on the Internet Archive. That should give you worldwide access from the Duat.

Phoenix you are correct the smartest people were probably the teachers of the Pharaohs.
