Cool, he wrote quite a few books, mostly esoteric subjects, interesting man. [/quote] No my Grandfather was Raymond Faulkner! But also an interesting man... [/quote] Ah I see. Well, cool bio on Raymond, must have had some interesting conversations with him over the years. [/quote] I was 11 when he died in 1982 so I didn't learn that much. But my Auntie says he insisted that his body was to be prevented from oxygen thus the epoxy filled coffin! The ancient Egyptians also had some sort of resin... [/quote]
He translated a French translation of the Papyrus of Ani (Egyptian book of the dead).
He told me that he believed that is was originally written by Thoth.
He was a freemason.
He told me that the Egyptians and other ancient societies believed that the physical body had to be preserved after death. He said
never get cremated
When he died his coffin was filled with epoxy resin and he had some gold artifacts in there but I am not sure why gold matters?
