After the death of pharaohs that had ruled ancient Egypt, it is thought that they ascend to the seat of gods, and they were buried together with the Book of the Dead.
Many of them had announced themselves to be descendants of Horus, and they were to accede the throne of Horus.
However, he alone, a powerful pharaoh, had personally claimed to be a god during his life. During the memorial ceremony of his 33th year reign,
he identified himself as "Ra, He Who Was Born of Gods".
He supervised new domestic constructions and monuments, at times dictated the construction personally.
Beyond that, he also modified monuments and statues of bygone days, claiming past accomplishments as his own.
In the later 30 years of his reign, he had established numerous temples throughout Egypt without minding the fact that Egypt's building style had become clustered and disordered.
drawing closer the world where the gods deign to the present world,
perhaps he had aimed for the unification of this world and the other world.
