DL: It is my honor to have you with us today King Tut. If you don't mind I will like to get to know your life a little bit better so when can know more knowledge about you. I hope we can get more information on you and your life.
KT: I would love to answer your questions and I will try to give you my whole life based on your questions.
DL: There is many talk about you and your tomb having a curse. For example after hearing that Howard Carter found your tomb Lord Carnovaron the one who paid for that project died. Give me your opinion on this so called curse?
KT: Well for starters I was dead already and I also did not set a curse before I died so I do not believe in this. Also why would I kill someone who found my tomb. It looks as if all pharaoh tombs are found by someone. My opinion is that there is no curse and this is not true.
DL: There are mant different theories on how you died give the most reasonable one and why?
KT: Again since I was already dead I do not know. Although my best theory is the one with the chariot falling on me. Honestly this was just a wild pick because there are so many theories. I chose this one because it fits best I think. Since it was so sudden and probally if I was looking down I would probally not see it coming down on me.
DL: Explain why Egyptians thought a physical body was essential for the after life? Explain what they did with your body parts during the http://www.king-tut.org.uk/index.htm + ">process of mummification?
KT: Those are very good questions. First off we believed that life and death were stages of progress to a good life in the next world. We believed that mummification, the way of preserving the body after death, was neccesary to keep the soul alive. In the process of mummification the brain and the internal organs, except the heart, were put in canopic jars which were put with the mummy in the tomb. We believed that a physical body was essential for the after life because for the deceased and that without a physical body the soul had no place to dwell and became restless forever. The tomb, the process of mummification, rituals and magic spells promoted the well- being, and ensured the preservation, of the dead and the elements of the soul called the Ka, Ba and Ahk. Also during the process the mummy is placed in a sarcophagus. It is a long process and sometimes for people of this age confusing but, it was our way making sure we made it to a good question.
DL: In your opinion explain how http://www2.fi.edu/tut/religion.html">religion was important to Egypt?
KT: Well in Egypt religion was more than a belief system it was a way of life. In Egypt it was a part of every day life. The fundamental governing this system was maat. It was an abstract concept often translated as truth or justiceand it was represented by the goddess maat. Basically it represented how the world was suppose to be. DL: Can you give me three different spellings of your name and what they mean? KT: Well for first three names are Ka, Ba, and Ahk. They all come out to spell http://www2.fi.edu/tut/religion.html">my name Tutankhamun. By the way a winged scarab beetle comes out to spell those names. Also in my tomb I believe that they were on a wall so that is probaly how you found it.
DL: Well it has been a honor talking to you King Tutankhamun and I hope you will a have a happy after life. Also thanks for talking with us because now we have more information about you. KT: Well it was my honor and thank you.
