Then you attempt to clarify what you contend is my misconception by providing me with yet more evidence of their spiritual belief when you state:
This is exactly what the pyramid was for; to remind them of their king. By being reminded of him he could continue to watch over his people eternally.
His corporeal body has ceased to exist.
He is incapable of being able to 'watch over his people'.
And how on Earth can the limestone bricks of a pyramid or smoke 'watch over' people 'eternally' unless, of course, you are a superstitious bumpkin who has a belief in the transmigration of some life force, energy or soul from the physical, corporeal plane to the sky, or 'heaven', ascending the 'stairs' or via a 'rope-ladder' to exist in spirit form forever, keeping watch over your people because you believe kings are incarnate gods who have the ability to do so.
Do you see what you did there?
No semantics. Just me, using your defence of your position to illustrate how wrong you really are.
