Introducing the story of The Mummy by: David Levithan.

about The Mummy:

Today it must be admitted that man is the true inheritor of the ancient aspirations of a great civilization. Today we should be very happy that the arena of this world has never been empty of thought. and we should really bow down to the greatness of the thought of the ancestors.

Discover the past and prepare yourself to enter a new realm of time.The ancient Egyptians sought the realities of life. They tried to make sense of every human life from beginning to end.

Their perceptions may not be very different from our perceptions of life. because when we enter their culture and study, we find that they have accepted God as a powerful and influential force in life. So if in this case we put God as the first actor and man as the second actor, then the third character will be Satan.

summary:

Imhotep was a cursed high priest from the reign of the Pharaoh Seti I of 1290 B.C. He began an affair with Seti’s mistress Anck-Su-Namun. The pharaoh had caught the lovers, so Anck-su-namun was afraid that he could kill them both. So they decided to kill Pharaoh and killed him.

But they are discovered and Anck-su-namun pushed the knife into her own stomach and said to Imhotep to bring her back to life later. She knew that he could do it. To bring it to life Imhotep and his priests later steal her corpse from her burial-place.

Imhotep attempts to resurrect her, but is captured at Hamunaptra (the City of the Dead) by the Pharaoh’s sacred bodyguards. His priests are mummified and buried alive. Imhotep, meanwhile, is condemned to endure the Curse. As a result Imhotep becomes a undead fiend kept alive in a state of death.
