    For example, upon death could the soul leaving the body be quantified by a change in weight, heat or energy?

    The laws of conservation of mass and energy would lead one to believe that the soul could be detected or measured leaving the body.

    We could conduct experiments using RHP as a pool of candidates for experimentation.

    Probably not. How about the spirit? The mind? The personality? Memory? Emotion? How much do these things weigh?

    Actually an attempt to measure this by the scientific community has occured. For an account of this and other interesting stories regarding death, cadavers.etc. read Mary Roach's book entitled "Stiff."
