There's so much we'd have to cover before we even began to talk about dreams--but seeing as you have no concept or ideology about spirituality; i'm not too sure where to start, and your responses are as abstract as the spiritual realm itself.
How about this.... you have a heart right? Where does the energy that "grants" you emotional stimulation stem from; what is that 21 grams that departs from the body upon death? Let's start here..
Yes, just about everyone has a heart. If not, you probably aren't posting too much online.
Emotions are the result of electrical impulses and neurotransmitters.
The 21 grams is probably a mixture of the air in your lungs expelled, piss and shit that leave your body when all your sphincters release.
To be serious for a moment... That study of the weight of the soul was total bullshit, it's been discredited and debunked many times.
