osiris in the kingdom ,,,,, from the inscription at the pyramids texts show that only the kings who shows them selfs in the osiris form at the after life and that osiris is the ruler of egypt during the pre historical periods .

Opposed to Osiris as ruler of the Duat, there is his connection with the concept of the sun-king. It is believed that this reflects the ancient Egyptian fear of death. They dreaded the gloom of the Underworld and therefore it lay close to hand to in Osiris see the counterpart of the sun-god – the opposite pole so to speak. This would ensure that the Underworld would always have at least some shade of the light of day. It was said that Re an Osiris embraced one another as ‘twin souls’ and Re is even told to superwise the funeral of Osiris. This might also be the reason Osiris was often seen as the moon while Re symbolized the sun.
