Egyptian concept of Soul
As one of the vital organs, the heart was long identified as the center of the entire body, the seat of life, or emotion, or reason, will,
intellect, purpose or the mind.
The Chinese word Chinese word xīn also takes the metaphorical meanings of "mind, intelligence", "soul" or "center, core". In Chinese medicine, the
heart is seen as the center of 神 shén "spirit, soul, consciousness".
The Sanskrit word for heart, hRd (हृद्) dates at least as far back as the Rigveda and is a cognate of the word for heart in Greek, Latin and
English. The same word is used to mean "mind" or "soul" depending on the context.
Many classical philosophers and scientists, including Aristotle, considered the heart the seat of thought, reason or emotion, often disregarding the
brain as contributing to those functions.
Bread = Core/Kore = "Heart"
Wine = Blood = Grail = Rose = "Heart"
God-Head = 'Gem Mine of the Gemini Mind' = "Heart"

or the Egyptian reed fields, are the heavenly paradise, where Osiris ruled after he became part of the Egyptian pantheon and displaced Anubis in
the Ogdoad tradition. It has been described as the ka (a part of the soul) of the Nile Delta.
The Ka (kꜣ) was the Egyptian concept of vital essence, that which distinguishes the difference between a living and a dead person, with death
occurring when the ka left the body. The Egyptians believed that Khnum created the bodies of children on a potter's wheel and inserted them into their
mothers' bodies. Depending on the region, Egyptians believed that Heket or Meskhenet was the creator of each person's Ka, breathing it into them at
the instant of their birth as the part of their soul that made them be alive. This resembles the concept of spirit in other religions.
The Egyptians also believed that the ka was sustained through food and drink. For this reason food and drink offerings were presented to the
dead, although it was the kau (kꜣw) within the offerings that was consumed, not the physical aspect. The ka was often represented in Egyptian
iconography as a second image of the king, leading earlier works to attempt to translate ka as double.
From Latin vita , which means life.
Outside of its own existence or source, life is only recognized through some form of expression or dynamic.
Compare-contrast the concepts of "Ka" and "Ib",
because 'Heart' is both the 'Literal Physical Body' and it is also used 'Figuratively' in many, many ways.
'Heart, Mind, Soul', etc are very versatile terms with plenty of leeway and overlapping.

An important part of the Egyptian soul was thought to be the Ib (jb), or heart. The Ib or metaphysical heart was believed to be formed from one
drop of blood from the child's mother's heart, taken at conception.
To ancient Egyptians, the heart was the seat of emotion, thought, will and intention. This is evidenced by the many expressions in the Egyptian
language which incorporate the word ib, Awt-ib: happiness (literally, wideness of heart), Xak-ib: estranged (literally, truncated of heart). This word
was transcribed by Wallis Budge as Ab.
In Egyptian religion, the heart was the key to the afterlife. It was conceived as surviving death in the nether world, where it gave evidence for, or
against, its possessor. It was thought that the heart was examined by Anubis and the deities during the Weighing of the Heart ceremony. If the heart
weighed more than the feather of Maat, it was immediately consumed by the monster Ammit.
So the "Grail/Heart" is associated with "Life-Vitality-Intellect-Etc" through many routes.
