Good ideas never really disappear, they just wait for full funding. And one idea that won't die (snicker) is mummification.
Whether it be the practice of an ancient civilization or the subject of examination by a modern day culture, Mummification has always been held in the highest esteem by society. It was common among early cultures, most notably for religious reasons. With the onset of the Dark Ages and the plagues, the art of Mummification began to diminish until finally, this form of care ceased. Looking back in time, it was a practice that extended around the world.
Still, we find ourselves attracted to the role Mummification has played throughout history and the significance it has carried throughout time. It touches something deep within our esoteric being. History shows us what great concern Mummification expressed in the final care of one of nature's most beautiful creations: the human being. [More]
When you are making out your final plans, you have more options than you may think. And you may want to try a test run on your old family pet.
You might want to start saving now, because currently mummification runs about $70,000 not including casket, vault, shipping & handling, airport taxes, activation fee, etc. It is not a simple process.
