you should check out 21 Grams for more on this.

And no, the movie isn't about coccaine. 21 grams was the "weight of the soul" as measured by Dr. MacDougall. Turns out that as a body entered the four stages of death (Algor, livor, and rigor mortis followed by putrefication) it spontaneously lost 21 grams of weight. Surely, it must be the soul escaping!
