And if it was some scientists see a false door that the name does not reflect the exact meaning of it, and if it was in most cases, it held wide-body interfaces centered interventions close in the rear cylinder and topped with stone and so can be called by the name of the entrances to the Spirit where is the human spirit and is something to separate him frequented man after his death is in the flesh and accept offerings,it is called in the ancient Egyptian language " r-pr".  The false door is image in stone or wood to the door of real was the mode of communication between the upper part of the cemetery where he was presenting offerings and performed funeral rites and the burial chamber where the body of the deceased. It was believed to be dead out of it to receive what is offered to him from the offerings in front of him and then return enters it To the cemetery as it is a door to the spirit guides to the path can visit the owner's body for him.
To the place where you can enjoy it, including offers of their sacrifice in front of him, may prove in the front terrace or in the west wall of the compartment Eucharist and strike through groove narrow, is the door opening. It is free in most cases of any pattern or is it the owner and louder in order to winding a mat folded Engraved by the titles of the deceased and his name is above the panel between the thresholds by food Mokhtlvpoukd preceded in many cases.

Some believe that the false door appeared since early historical times, where the family first appeared in the rectangles varying amplitude and depth in some parts of the walls, a bottom was found on the burial chamber as storage tools for food and drink. Although it was difficult to know the purpose of such rectangles and assume that the rectangles carved in the shoulders, which separates the mammary room may symbolize the entrances to behave as a symbolic of spirit.
Development occurred in the false door to the Third Dynasty was a deep Nietzsche then topped with a cylindrical mat lintel engraved invitations and in the family had decorated the fourth false door as follows:
 
Upper lintel: usually the names and titles of the tomb owner and offering formula Terrace: the owner of the cemetery and sit at a table by the same sacrifices to the names of the material presented as an offering
 
Internal aspects: the deceased was standing in front of him and Positions held in his life, and scenes of daily life.
 
In the Fifth Dynasty we find the doors of the shoulders had continued then emerged from the side Alzachrvipvy the middle of the Fifth Dynasty surrounded Bakirzanp and culminate in the cornice was sweetened door decorations consist of rectangles and squares or wavy lines and From the middle of the Fifth Dynasty the decorations often included tours moulding (convex moulding resembling a semicircle in cross section) and a "cavetto cornice" (a concave bracket around the top of a wall or gate with a cross section that resembles a quarter circle in cross section).

In the Sixth Dynasty dominated the false doors of three difference in height and was decorated Corniche Or Kirzanp and the representation of eye Alaudjat.

During the New Kingdom false doors in temples were often associated with a chapel known as "the hearing ear" which was generally located in the outer wall near the back of the temple close to the sanctuary. These chapels allowed those outside the temple to communicate directly with the god who could hear them through the false door. However, the majority of false doors are to be found in tombs and mortuary temples to allow the deceased to access the living world and receive offerings. In fact, the false door can be seen as the combination of an offering niche and a stele with the offering formula inscribed on it.
