I ought to clairfy what I meant by the statement; "A people who believed in resurrection were surely not concerned by an Earthly death - were they?"

One might interpret resurrection as a spiritual belief but what I was driving at is that the cult of Osiris was perhaps a form of ancient Pantheism - a belief that God (Osiris) is the embodiment of life in Nature.

If that is so, then surely the pyramid does not need to have been designed to serve a practical function as a recovery vault - because the AEs were absolutely confident that Nature resurrects itself - as it had if one believes in the Antediluvian flood myths - so recovery vaults were not necessary in a 'practical' sense at all.

I'm with you on the absence of any body - I just don't consider the GP to have been built for a practical purpose but am happy to be proved wrong.
