RE: 21 grams
I didn't see that movie but apparently, your priest did. Been meaning to check it out but it didn't seem all that interesting. Although, I do like looking at some of the people who star in it.

People entertain all kinds of ideas about death. Some seem desperate to connect death with life, as if it needs to be something more than an observable transition to not existing.

Some even try to prove that one's personal, recognizable identity continues beyond what is detectable. I'd have to ask those people why such a separated thing would be significant to our existence. I don't know why people want to hang on to the dead.

Anything beyond keeping a personal memory of a loved one's life as we get on with our own, is a waste of time. Priests have little else to do than waste people's time, I guess.

Here's a wiki for that film. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/21_Grams

It's interesting, but inconclusive; kinda ghoulish, actually.

RE: 21 grams
If we knew how, we'd have the hard drive capacity to save a person's «content». There's also progress on the brain/computer interfacing.
I'm not sure weight is the correct unit of measurement. I'm also not sure a person's «content» equals what is thought of as a soul. If we did have the transfer technology, we'd have saved memories, feelings, a whole lot of function instructions that are no longer relevant (since hard drives are hardly bodies to make work) and a bunch of opinions. Now what, if any of that constitutes a soul... and it would be terabytes of data.
