This is a description of the spirits departure and arrival in the afterlife. Better yet we discover the rational for mummification. They thought that a ghost remained behind to trouble people and this is separate from the living spirit. These ideas remain extant but not so clearly realized as with the Egyptians.
This work clarifies what we presently understand about Egyptian funeral practices.
There was much poorly understood but this short piece does make good sense of it. Close reading of this and other sources should allow a full reconstruction.
