New scientific study shows "False" Pregnancy "First pregnant mom" famous in the world

A new study has found that an Egyptian mummy thought to be pregnant was not actually carrying a child.

A team of Polish scientists said last year they had discovered the only known example of a pregnant Egyptian mummy. But this discovery caused widespread controversy among scientists, as many members of the team questioned this result.

Some scientists at the Warsaw Mummy Project have argued that what appeared to be a fetus on x-rays and CT scans was actually the result of “computer misinterpretation and delusion”.

Instead of having a baby, they think it’s “mummified organs” in a woman’s stomach.

Kamilla Praulinska, co-director of the Warsaw mummy project, said the original study was not a “reliable scientific study”, and radiologist Łukasz Konazki and conservation activist Dorota Ignatowicz i Vinyakoska also questioned the study.

But two project participants, Marzena Ozarek Schlick and Wojciech Eismond, rejected the claims. They say: “The Warsaw Mummy Project team does not support this information. The Mummy is pregnant.”

This was stated by scientists from the National Museum in Warsaw. While X-rays and CT scans last year revealed what looked like a fetus, scans revealed four tufts, and Braulinska, a bioarchaeologist, confirmed the initial notion that the four tufts found inside the mummy’s abdomen were wrapped and the organs were embalmed. . .

She added: “The bundles were placed there by ancient embalmers. There may have been at least one embalmed member of the deceased in the bundle. This was a well-known practice in ancient Egypt.”

The remaining packages may contain body parts or other products of the mummification process.

There is another possibility, he says, that the embalmers placed bundles in the mummies to keep the shape of the body after the mummification process.

“Our article contains a number of excellent photographs and links to videos depicting the inside of an ancient mummy, including those made using holographic technologies, which are the latest trends in medicine. This is not the first mom to have this kind of package. Objects of this type are sometimes found in other parts of the body, and there are ligaments or similar materials in the pelvis.”

According to Praulinska, the discovery of the mummy’s apparent pregnancy was the result of an illusion caused by a phenomenon known as “pareidolia,” a phenomenon in which the mind reacts to a random stimulus, usually an image or sound, by perceiving a familiar picture, even if there is nothing, that is, this vision of faces in random objects or patterns of light and shadow. Thus, it reflects the natural human desire to see familiar things in random forms.

She said: “This phenomenon, coupled with the lack of consultation of theories with radiologists, has unfortunately brought only a general effect, and not a reliable scientific study.”

She noted: “Our article shows how important it is to collaborate with experts from different fields in the study of ancient Egyptian mummies, and how to rationally and critically approach the analysis of the results, discarding illusions.”

The mummy of the “Mysterious Lady” was reportedly found in the royal tombs at Thebes, Upper Egypt. It was discovered in the early 19th century and dates back to the first century BC, when Cleopatra was queen.

The mummy was moved to Warsaw, Poland in 1826, around the time of some of the most important finds from Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, and is currently on display at the National Museum in Warsaw.

Last year, a CT scan showed the woman was in her 20s and 30s when she died and was 26 to 30 weeks pregnant.

Her fetus was in the lower part of the pelvis and was embalmed along with the mother. The CT scan was unable to scan the infant because it was covered by tissue from the surrounding uterus.
