The Weighing of the Heart
The Weighing of the Heart
The Book of the Dead of Kenna
1405-1467 BC


This is one of the many depictions from the ancient Egyptians showing the heart being weighed against the feather. They believed that, after death, a person is guided to the Judgment Hall for this weighing of the heart. According to James Churchward in The Sacred Symbols of Mu, the feather is said to represent "truth" because it can be so easily blown away. According to Joseph Campbell, in The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, the feather is symbolic of Maat, goddess of the moral order of the universe.

Note the seven spherical nodules along the pole from near the bottom on up to the crossbeam. They are thought to correspond to the seven chakras of the human body. There is another nodule above the beam, which may represent a sphere of timeless consciousness beyond the earth plane.

Note also that the the composite animal's snout cuts across the pole between the third and forth nodules. The platform of the Judgment seat is also at that level. This seems to indicate the critical point between the third chakra and the forth, the heart chakra.

The baboon on the Judgment seat is one form of the god Thoth, counterpart of the Greek Hermes (Mercury to the Romans), who guides the soul after death. Baboons bark with the rising of the sun.

If the heart weighs more than the feather, the dead soul is devoured by the "Swallower," the composite beast, a mixture of crocodile, hippopotamus, and lion. If the heart is found to be lighter than the feather, the soul is conducted by Toth to Osiris's throne by the Waters of Eternal Life.

Joseph Campbell wrote that in terms of the kundalini, the message could hardly be clearer . . . if the aims of the deceased in life were no higher than those of Chakra three (the animal instincts), the Swallower claims the soul.

The implication is that if one has not reached the heart chakra level of love and compassion during a lifetime, the person must be reborn, that is, reincarnated back on earth, in order to try again. Otherwise, the soul is free to move on to higher planes of existence.

Personally, I believe that Thoth represents a part of the self, probably the Higher Self, and that we "judge" ourselves after death. The decision is made after a "time," to reincarnate or to move on to another plane.

Re: The Weighing of the Heart
The study I saw involved weighing a person just prior to and just after death. The difference was 2 Oz. Was it the life force that had left? The soul, or heart?

Re: The Weighing of the Heart
Sorry for the thread drift.


Regarding the weight of the soul, I stand corrected.
The data was from a discredited study in 1907. It was actually 21 grams.



Snopes:

From:
[link to rationallyspeaking.blogspot.com]

>>>This myth, reinforced by a 2003 fictional movie by the otherwise rather cryptic title “21 grams” is occasionally thrown to non-supernaturalists as one more “proof” that we are fools, by our own standards of reason and evidence.

It turns out that the only source for the 21 gram figure is a discredited study carried out in 1907 by a Haverhill, Massachusetts, doctor by the name of Duncan MacDougall. He managed (apparently overcoming any ethical qualms over human experimentation) to put six dying people on a bed equipped with sensitive springs, and claimed to have observed a sudden loss of weight – about ¾ of an ounce – at the exact moment of their death. Having reasoned that such loss could not be explained by bowel movements or evaporation, he concluded he must have measured the weight of the soul. A follow-up experiment also showed that dogs (which were healthy, so they were probably poisoned on purpose by the good doctor) don't seem to suffer the same sort of loss, therefore they don't have souls (sorry, you canine lovers).

This is an excellent example of where pseudoscience and belief go wrong, on a variety of levels. Let us start with MacDougall's claim itself: it turns out that his data were decidedly unreliable by any decent scientific standard. Not only was the experiment never repeated (by either MaDougall or anyone else), but his own notes (published in American Medicine in March 1907) show that of the six data points, two had to be discarded as “of no value”; two recorded a weight drop, followed by additional losses later on (was the soul leaving bit by bit?); one showed a reversal of the loss, then another loss (the soul couldn't make up its mind, leaving, re-entering, then leaving for good); and only one case actually constitutes the basis of the legendary estimate of ¾ of an ounce. With data like these, it's a miracle the paper got published in the first place.

Second, as was pointed out immediately by Dr. Augustus P. Clarke in a rebuttal also published in American Medicine, MacDougall failed to consider another obvious hypothesis: that the weight loss (assuming it was real) was due to evaporation caused by the sudden rise in body temperature that occurs when the blood circulation stops and the blood can no longer be air-cooled by the lungs. This also elegantly explains why the dogs showed no weight loss: as is well known, they cool themselves by panting, not sweating like humans do.

Third, MacDougall's allegedly inescapable conclusion (“How other shall we explain it?”) did not derive from any theory of the soul, but was simply arrived at by excluding a small number of other possibilities. In other words, the soul “explanation” won by default, without having to go through the onerous process of positive confirmation. This is yet another version of the “god-of-the-gaps” argument so in vogue among the faithful, and that constitutes the backbone – such as it is – of Intelligent Design “theory.”

But perhaps most damning of all is the very idea that the soul has weight. Whatever it is, the soul since Plato's time has been understood as immaterial, i.e. without mass and, therefore, weightless. Obviously, this in turn raises all the classic problems of dualism: how can something immaterial interact with a material world? How can ghosts walk through walls and yet “see” things or make noises? How can the mind direct our actions – that famous conundrum that stymied Descartes – if it is an incorporeal “substance” (itself an oxymoron)?

Even more basically: why are the so-called “faithful” perennially in search of scientific confirmation of their inanities? Shouldn't faith be enough? Indeed, isn't the very idea of faith as a value that one should hold fast to it, not only despite the lack of evidence, but even in the face of contrary evidence? C'mon guys, I'm beginning to think that somewhere in your subconscious you have this terrifying suspicion that you really believe in nonsense, and are therefore desperate to get science to provide some evidence, however flimsy, that you are right after all. Why not shed the superstition altogether and see what happens? It's a nice, comprehensible world out here. <<<

Re: The Weighing of the Heart
To have a heavy heart is to be saddened by events or emotions run amuck. Makes me want to stop all ill will (judgements) towards myself and others. Not so easy given the western mind but more than doable.

In fact, isn't this how we end war ... ending our own judgements ourselves. If one is reflected in the whole, the sooner we end our own "wars" the sooner the world wars cease.

Food for thought to lighten the heart.

Last night my friend also shared with me her insight that the lower 3 chakras are of the world and the top three are of the spirit. The idea is to bring the light down through the top three into the world through the lower 3 and the Heart is the key between the two. Divine Love is the Way.

May your Heart be Light (as a feather).
