I don't understand your question
well the heart was acually weighed by the egpytian god and godesses by the feather of truth if the heart was lighter there were no sins that the person made if it was heavier it was fulled with sins. mummification was
where they clean the body with alchol and natron(salt and took out the organs and put them in canopic jars.
