Mummification is believed to help the essence of the body transition into a new destination. An organization, Summum, introduced ‘Modern Mummification’ in 1975. Their process is meant to preserve the body and aid the body transition.
Summum uses chemicals to maintain the body’s natural look and leave the body submerged in a tank with preservation fluid for multiple months. The preservation techniques work so well that Summum claims that DNA will still be intact in the future.
