    The purpose was [ to maintain order in the Universe ].

    No.

    Funerary practices were part of preparation for the life beyond death.

    To honor the god.
    For blessings from the god.

    I would check the index of your textbook to see what the book says. Odds are, the professor will be looking for the answer that comes from the book, not from anonymous people on the internet.

    You need to study. You got google at your hands and yet you want some of us to give you answers? I could totally make something up right now just to be a jerk and purposely help you fail that exam. Seriously, go study.

    Apeasal. Funerary practice was to remove the organs one would not (supposedly) need in the afterlife.
