the Hall of Two Truths

I know I am not the first to come up with this correlation. But does anyone have any thoughts on the scales and what Dogen said about how a soul is a mixture of both good and evil. These are very reminiscent in my opinion to ancient Egyptian belief on how the heart of the dead are weighed against the feather of truth If the heart was lighter than the feather, they could pass on, but if it were heavier they would be devoured by the demon Ammit (possibly Smokey?)
