this series continue my investigation of the body as a "package of imprints on the outside and inside" which floats through experiences of virtual presence; however, occasionally capable to distance "itself from itself" during dream-states and other such "out of body" experiences, which in the ancient times were associated with the spirit, or shamanic worlds and are often mentioned in religious writings as well. The "weighing" is the storing of experiential baggage and its eventual release, periodically, through dream-states, and eventually permanently through death.
