In religio-mythology, karma weight is a theory that each action has a moral mass, termed ‘karma’, such that good deeds lighten a person’s soul (or atman), whereas evil deeds weigh down a person’s soul, and that the totality of one’s actions and their concomitant reactions in this and previous lives, determines a person’s future and future rebirth in a reincarnated state, good or bad, of existence in the next cycle of life, the cycle known as samsara, and that if the soul becomes light enough, the person can escape, be released, or achieve liberation from the samsara cycle of death and reincarnation, at which point they will be in nirvana or total bliss. Around 20% of the modern world believes in this morality system of life and death.

The theory of karma weight is the Vedic version (500BC) or syncretism-derivative of the Egyptian soul weighing theory of morality (2500BC) as found in the B-ra-hma-ic religions (Abrahamic/Brahmaic religions) of the world.

In origin, in regards to karma weight theory, what seems to have occurred is that each act of the 42 negative confessions, good or bad, served as a model for the idea of karma, to the effect that each negative confession is a type of karma to be weighed against the feather of truth, such that when the scale becomes light enough the person’s soul is set free or achieves moksha.

The modern-day physical sciences based model of morality is that: (a) a person is animated reactive 26-element molecule (human molecule), (b) that "good" actions, or rather "natural" actions, are governed by the Lewis inequality for a natural process (dG < 0), (c) that "bad" (or evil) actions, or rather "unnatural" actions, are governed by the Lewis inequality for an unnatural process (dG > 0), (d) that both natural and unnatural processes are thermodynamically "coupled" together, such that natural processes energetically drive the unnatural processes and that some reactions will progress in a direction contrary to that prescribed by their own affinity, (e) that there is no such thing as "life" and "death" according to the defunct theory of life model.

This is the thermodynamic explanation to age-old idiom that "good always triumphs over evil", which means that natural processes will always triumph over unnatural processes or technically that the total set of processes will only go when the system shows an entropy increase or transformation content increase.
