Seriously, I have a Hornung Thing

The Egyptians never abandoned the belief that it was possible to change the world in productive ways; in their view, it was always possible to bring a negative or imperfect condition back–or at least closer–to its perfect state at the time of creation. Ancient Egyptian culture derived a remarkable energy and optimism from this belief; their perspective on life had no room for fatalism or for a passive, unquestioning acceptance of the status quo.
