Well i think u answer the question,they shaved the heads in the army because they can control the batallions,and just program them better to follow orders, im not sure if this also contributes to have short term memory.

Yea, wrong again. Roman soldiers were the educated population. They were the ones whom fought for reasons.

Roman soldiers were educated volunteers whom served for a decade with the promise of land and money as a reward. They almost always got their reward and were loyal to the end. They are noted for being fearless in battle. Their brotherhood and communal strength was some of the strongest ever. And, they were strong believers of the individual.Individuality was what allowed Rome to flourish under the republic, and continue to have freedom under dictatorship.

Sorry, but you should probably review your history. Rome is one of the few empires on Earth where the leaders did what the people wanted because they were legitimately afraid of what would happen if they did not.

People whom became civilized and traditionally cut their hair to adopt to their Roman neighbor's traditions? England is one of the most multicultural society's on Earth, with an Indian number system, a Latin Alphabet, a Germanic Language, and Roman traditional cultural influences. One of which, shave your hair.

You know the movie Avatar basically got most its ideas from human tribes, right?


Maybe James Cameron read the email and stole the idea.

I know several Africans(Jamaicans) with dreadlocks who believe them to hold some sort of extra-sensory 'mapping' power. This sort of thinking is not unusual. It's been around since the dawn of time. Long before Avatar plagiarised other peoples cultures.


Yes, you are right. Avatar was so obviously a rip-off of Native Americans and the like. Maybe I shouldn't have been so smarty pants in my post.

Me Sad Well your pathetic !

Back up what you Preach ..

People that are civilized Traditionally cut their hair yeah in a Fascist sense as the Romans Were
why does The Court Room of Britain Wear Wigs ? Again and Dont Give me that Tradition Crap Ether!

Seeing that The UK has a Government that is Based On The Laws of Roman Society That Shaved their Hair Yet they(Britian England - Scotland - Wales ) wore their hair Long During The Renaissance era.. to the18th Century ! and Still Wear the Wigs


What The Most Multicultural is England ? And America Isn't or Russia! isn't Depends what time frame
and Yeah you can say there Multicultural as They learned from the Romans and Divide and Conquer from The Romans and Normans ( Descendants of Vikings ) those Harsh Hairy Usually Stocky Barrel Chested People that love the Cold .. that also Were multicultural as well ,, well I should say Adopted alot of Cultures the Romans and Greeks Mediterranean THE FRENCH (Normans) ..

The Numerals as we Know them today came from Arabic (Latin) The Writing in a better form than Sanskrit Indian Writing and the Roman Numerals Were used mostly until the 10century but The Roman Numerals are used today ( Basic Use )

The Language of English was Originated from Germanic Tribes as those tribes Used Latin & Arabic in their Language .... Now its Germanic , Latin , French

I replied to your post and you came back with "laughable, stupid etc...".

You want me to acknowledge that you think it is absurd to think of the collective consciousness a a "being"? What do you think the term "supreme being" describes?

Or maybe you want me to talk about your Mickey Mouse description of the holographic universe/bohemian imax/experiential matrix? A brain in a jar eh? Cosmic.

In the renaissance, Long hair was a sign of Wisdom and age. Duh. Times change. You should know that. Back it up? Google is your friend. The most proof you have for your statement is belief. Don't tell my cows to be silent while yours moo all day long.

Hair is what hair has always been. Mosquito protection, warmth, and extra sensitivity for annoyances.

Now, lets just put the nail in your coffin and show you shaven men being the best hunters in the world



Now stop being a silly boy.

Yes, I immediately thought about Buddhist monks, Gurus and Rinpoches who shave off their hair (the latter are not impedimented by the lack of hair). And at the same time I remembered many of the meditating yogis and yoginis I have seen and read about who do not cut their hair. A very interesting topic and I have yet to read something similar.


So it would seem that there is a definate shared belief across the globe and through time.

And yet the actual function or effect is so subtle and the conflicts of some belief systems that otherwise share generally the same sentimonies do not help us to comprehend this belief.

But what of the shared beliefs of those that seem to disagree on this subect?

The shared belief is liberation of the spiritual energy within the body to allow connection to the divine.

We can see depictions of Taoist immortals, Hindu gods, angels, Christian saints, demons, abbots etc..... with light, halos or fire. The Crown Chakra. There is speculation that this is where the concept of crowns for Royalty come from, notably Jesus, the said "king of kings" wore a crown of thorns.

So the hair somehow picks up this energy. It may mean it picks up or projects both pos or neg energy.

But unless we are at a point where we are suficiently purified and energised or genetically set to be sensitive in the spiritual way, we are not going to have any real gnosis of this.

So there is no saying you MUST have long hair or shaved hair to become enlightened just like there is no saying you MUST be a vegetarian to become enlightened. There is only the goal of purification and gathering and moving energy and recapitulating our own experiences to help us get our halo or enlightenment.

I, personally, would like to know more about the scientific validity of the following:

"Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved 'feelers' or 'antennae' that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brainstem, the limbic system, and the neocortex." I am not too sure of the relation / interaction between hair and the mammalian neocortex for example (if anyone has further info on this...)



I dont feel this line will help us understand the spiritual aspects for years to come. You could argue this scientific point either way. For example we would think it would hurt to get a hair cut if it was that closely linked to the nervous system. Interestingly where hair is useless or detrimental to the body and nervious system we dont have it IE very sensitive or very insenstive parts of our physique.

Curiously though stem cells derived from hair follicles are found to be effective in growing nerve cells in sciatic injury and so on.

That's great.

Meanwhile, only one medal of Honor recepiant had any serious facial hair.

en.wikipedia.org...

Now if you want to keep your exclusive study only on Native Americans that's great. Real science, however, is an inclusive study, not an exclusive study. Stop focusing on one group of people. For all you know, it's mentality. After all, many cultures where hair is important feel depressed and destroyed after it is cut. That is pure mentality, and a self inflicted lie. Of which, humans such as yourself are experts in putting on themselves.

I'm probably not on your side on this subject for the most part, but to kinda help support your point a bit... Native Americans have the least amount of total body hair of probably any other ethnic group in the world. Facial hair may contribute, but I doubt as much as the hair hanging from your head.

However, I do gotta hit another side and continue with this point... IF Native Americans have so little body hair, then that would leave it up to MAINLY the scalp hair to be sensitive. A Native American tracker who relies on his hair would "lose" MUCH more "power" by cutting his hair off than, say... about any person of European descent.

No, I have to say that humans are experts of adapting. This is why we conquered everything. If you loss your hair I would highly doubt that would affect you that much. Just about the only type of person who might be affected are the blind who hear through feeling. That's about it. Everyone else is not.

Mind you, you lose your hair on a daily basis. It simply is replaced. I fail to see how this point can stand up. Nerve "memory" cannot be replaced once the memory device is gone. If every hair learns this super special ability, than it happens within a day. IE, my stubble could be as powerful as an old bearded man.

Focusing About that One Group of People The American Indian and as My Blood Runs the Native American Bloodline of the Iroquois (Mohawk) What Race/Culture are you ... ? British ? Do you have a Problem with Native Americans ? And your right for all i know it Could be The mentality I NEVER SAID it was FACT

All i Ask if there is any Scientific Truth But instead I got Ridiculed by someone that does not Show Links to back up His Statement ! and when i ask for Links I got Slammed for Asking For Something that is Basic Knowledge Sanskrit (Hindu) Numeral System Actually We Use the System Arabic/Latin that is derived from Sanskrit (hindu) Numeral System That Persians Adopted

I'm part Cherokee and a crap ton of everything. You could easily say I am everything except part Asian. And I have no care for culture to tell you the truth. This silly "bah bah wha wha, white man hurt me" bullcrap really is old. If you want your long hair enjoy it. I am a very stoic Christian and see hair as an annoyance to doing my work. If you wan to fight for "the republic" than you confine the the rules of it. If you'd like to fight alone, be a vigilantee. I could care less.

I am a proud person from many cultures. And you know what I see from them? All failures. I make my own future and define myself. I don't need the history of a dead people to define me. Forgive me for saying so, but if you need the culture of a dead people to define you, it's pretty sad. enjoy the knowledge of your ancestors, but they're dead. Make your own future and stop worshiping the long gone.

On the positive side, in the movie 'The men who stare at goats' the squad of new earth warriors had to grow their hair and beards. Also when working as a bouncer I felt a lot more comfortable in the role when I did have a beard, never had long hair in this role as anyone how grabs a good hold of it owns ya.

On the negative side it gets too dame hot in Australia to have long hair and feels like the brain is overheating. In cooler climates though it would help insulate the brain to run at a better operating temperature and therefore more efficiently. Had long hair at one stage but got feed up with the amount of maintenance it takes to look after it.

Has got me thinking about growing it a bit longer though.

Interesting. I had through my teens and twenties had hair past the middle of my back. I finally cut it due to a job offer. I can say that I too experienced an immediate disconnection. I was truly sad. But I discredited my feelings as silly. But now maybe not. If I cut my finger off I would cry about that too. Thanks for your post.

This is me 4 years ago, I felt angry at everybody and the world, was insecure, paranoid and rarely left the house:




This is me last year, I felt happy, had my friends around me, wasn't prone to violent outbursts and felt at one with people:




This is me now, still happy, finally have a job, a wonderful girlfriend, family and friends:




The thing is, before the first pic, when I was at a low, I had long hair and beard and felt happy / at peace, and it wasn't hitting the low that made me lose it all, that came after the shears.

Odd isn't it.
