A number of spells are for magical amulets , which would protect the deceased from harm. In addition to being represented on a Book of the Dead papyrus, these spells appeared on amulets wound into the wrappings of a mummy.
Other items in direct contact with the body in the tomb, such as headrests, were also considered to have amuletic value.
Almost every Book of the Dead was unique, containing a different mixture of spells drawn from the corpus of texts available.
For most of the history of the Book of the Dead there was no defined order or structure. The spells in the Book of the Dead depict Egyptian beliefs about the nature of death and the afterlife.
The Book of the Dead is a vital source of information about Egyptian beliefs in this area. One aspect of death was the disintegration of the various kheperu , or modes of existence.
Mummification served to preserve and transform the physical body into sah , an idealised form with divine aspects;  the Book of the Dead contained spells aimed at preserving the body of the deceased, which may have been recited during the process of mummification.
The ka , or life-force, remained in the tomb with the dead body, and required sustenance from offerings of food, water and incense.
In case priests or relatives failed to provide these offerings, Spell ensured the ka was satisfied. It was the ba , depicted as a human-headed bird, which could "go forth by day" from the tomb into the world; spells 61 and 89 acted to preserve it.
An akh was a blessed spirit with magical powers who would dwell among the gods. The nature of the afterlife which the dead person enjoyed is difficult to define, because of the differing traditions within Ancient Egyptian religion.
In the Book of the Dead , the dead were taken into the presence of the god Osiris , who was confined to the subterranean Duat.
There are also spells to enable the ba or akh of the dead to join Ra as he travelled the sky in his sun-barque, and help him fight off Apep.
There are fields, crops, oxen, people and waterways. The deceased person is shown encountering the Great Ennead , a group of gods, as well as his or her own parents.
While the depiction of the Field of Reeds is pleasant and plentiful, it is also clear that manual labour is required. For this reason burials included a number of statuettes named shabti , or later ushebti.
These statuettes were inscribed with a spell, also included in the Book of the Dead , requiring them to undertake any manual labour that might be the owner's duty in the afterlife.
The path to the afterlife as laid out in the Book of the Dead was a difficult one. The deceased was required to pass a series of gates, caverns and mounds guarded by supernatural creatures.
Their names—for instance, "He who lives on snakes" or "He who dances in blood"—are equally grotesque. These creatures had to be pacified by reciting the appropriate spells included in the Book of the Dead ; once pacified they posed no further threat, and could even extend their protection to the dead person.
If all the obstacles of the Duat could be negotiated, the deceased would be judged in the "Weighing of the Heart" ritual, depicted in Spell The deceased was led by the god Anubis into the presence of Osiris.
There, the dead person swore that he had not committed any sin from a list of 42 sins ,  reciting a text known as the "Negative Confession".
Then the dead person's heart was weighed on a pair of scales, against the goddess Maat , who embodied truth and justice. Maat was often represented by an ostrich feather, the hieroglyphic sign for her name.
If the scales balanced, this meant the deceased had led a good life. Anubis would take them to Osiris and they would find their place in the afterlife, becoming maa-kheru , meaning "vindicated" or "true of voice".
This scene is remarkable not only for its vividness but as one of the few parts of the Book of the Dead with any explicit moral content.
The judgment of the dead and the Negative Confession were a representation of the conventional moral code which governed Egyptian society.
For every "I have not John Taylor points out the wording of Spells 30B and suggests a pragmatic approach to morality; by preventing the heart from contradicting him with any inconvenient truths, it seems that the deceased could enter the afterlife even if their life had not been entirely pure.
A Book of the Dead papyrus was produced to order by scribes. They were commissioned by people in preparation for their own funeral, or by the relatives of someone recently deceased.
They were expensive items; one source gives the price of a Book of the Dead scroll as one deben of silver,  perhaps half the annual pay of a labourer.
In one case, a Book of the Dead was written on second-hand papyrus. Most owners of the Book of the Dead were evidently part of the social elite; they were initially reserved for the royal family, but later papyri are found in the tombs of scribes, priests and officials.
Most owners were men, and generally the vignettes included the owner's wife as well. Towards the beginning of the history of the Book of the Dead , there are roughly 10 copies belonging to men for every one for a woman.
The dimensions of a Book of the Dead could vary widely; the longest is 40m long while some are as short as 1m.
After bragging a bit about her misspelled "Employee of the Month" plaque, Nicole tears down the family portrait to put the plaque in its place.
This causes Richard to be upset, complaining about how he doesn't have a photo of himself hanging in the house.
Nicole then begins dialing numbers on the phone, causing Darwin to become excited and ask if they are ordering pizza; she denies this and instead states that she is calling everyone in the phone book to brag about her accomplishment.
Richard complains about not being appreciated. Gumball tries to cheer him up, and Anais recommends that he talk to Nicole about his feelings, since she will surely be rational.
The next day, the kids help Richard gain the courage to talk to Nicole. Anais goes to Nicole and tells her to talk to Richard.
After stalling for a bit, Richard reveals to Nicole that he thinks his work is underappreciated and that he deserves recognition. Nevertheless, Nicole is outraged because of how different Richard's parenting style is, so Richard goes on strike out of anger.
Richard argues with Nicole for a while, and then Nicole heads inside. The house is on fire and everything is a complete mess.
After navigating the house some more, she finds a monster resembling Anais, with a mischievous laugh and distorted face. Terrified and angry, Nicole begins to head up the stairs, when Gumball with a similarly distorted face throws a grandfather clock down the stairs.
When Nicole enters her bedroom, she sees a ghost party, to which she promptly puts an end. Nicole runs out of the house screaming, and goes to Richard.
Nicole then attempts to go back into the house and sort out everything, only to be thrown out again immediately. Finally, Nicole gives in to Richard, and lets him take control.
In the backyard, the kids are about to shoot one of their neighbors out of a giant slingshot. Richard walks into the yard and tries to stop his kids.
Nicole saves the neighbor from being catapulted across the street just as Gumball lets go of him. Astounded, Nicole finally recognizes Richard's effective parenting skills.
However, when Nicole gets up from the ground, she accidentally catapults the neighbor over the fence, ending the episode.
