Just an idea, but if we took the Sanskrit meaning of Moorchha to be fainting or swooning, could the use of the word ‘weak’ refer to the physical state of a person, one falling into unconsciousness? There might be a level of awareness then within that state, but it would still be disposed to ignorance.
