  • 'The weak soul - - At that level, the body is the soul, but it does not count as a soul with weight. The Soul of the Common Man — can bring a weight upon small minds... The Soul of the Uncommon Man — is rumored to weigh as much as a spec of dust. The Genius soul —is worth it's weight in gold... I have found a small blood-and-wax figure naturally formed in my ear which appeared shaped like the face of a little (genius) ... The Gnostic Soul — The weight is judged in heaven with trickery.... The safeguard is to be more tricky... and to become enslaved to the spirit. The Soul of the Magi — The magi are people authentic enough to have classic souls, and what this seems to involve is the power of the soul, to direct it into objects or places... phusis or psyche or noos... the soul may be able to ever-so-carefully acquire the weight of the vessel that contains it. An appropriate vessel might be one way to have a powerful soul in this case... as V. says... the soul is only as strong as the vessel that keeps it. Which is meant as a reference to being a vampire immortal or wight... The Immortal Soul —With difficulty, one acquires a magic nature, and this is when the soul begins to physically grow. It is relatively rare... Not everyone would agree that it could become immortal. But so long as we are debating the strength of the soul we are in trouble... because we then seem to oppose its natural growth.'
