The Weight of Soul

Viewed 1601 times 2015-6-16 10:51 |System category:News


Recently , I was attaching to a book by ShiTiesheng, which dwells upon a journey of a soul in human body. That is a journey 

for life to be being, from a little kid to a grownup, from naive to thoughtful, from life to death, in a philosophical way to present

 the truth of life, but in an exploring way with puzzling. It seems that I am channeling something he said in the book.

Last night, some lines came to me. It puts like thissomeone said that the weight of the soul is 21grams, for someone has proved

 that at the moment of a souls leaving, 21 grams is missing compared to the live human body.

In the meantime, I recalled a movie I watched 2 months ago. Its named 21 grams.  At the ending , there comes some lines 

from a monologue by Paul in his last moment of life


How many lives do we live? How many times do we die?

They say we all lose twenty-one grams...

Everyone.

And how much fits into twenty-one grams?How much is lost?

when do we lose twenty-one grams?

How much goes with them?


How much is gained?

Twenty-one grams.

The weight of a stack of five nickels.

The weight of a humming bird.

A chocolate bar.

How much do twenty one grams weigh?

  

Hence , how much twenty one grams weigh ? 

when do we lose twenty-one grams?

 What we really lose after that 21 grams?
