Hi Scott

Thanks for the insight, substantiated by way of the late professor Griffiths.

Given that Osiris is a deity and not a mortal human being, the idea of rebirth being a "corporeal event" doesn't really apply in his circumstance though, does it?

Also, one can choose other Pyramid Text utterances to challenge the idea of denial of death. For example, utterance 141:

"There is no god, who has become a star, without a companion."
"Shall I be your companion?"
"Look at me! you have seen the forms of the children of their fathers, who know their spell, who are now Imperishable Stars".

This utterance seems, to my mind, to contradict the assertion made by Prof. Griffiths, who argues: "Whereas the other religious systems involved the ascent of the deceased to heaven or his temporary transformation into another form, the Osirian system is clearly [not]."

The god who "has become a star" has clearly transformed into another form. This is the transmigration of the soul to another realm - to a star in the vault of Heaven.
