part of our cultural attitude towards women, power, sexuality and their hair. Although not normally articulated, it's considered unsuitable for older
women, perhaps reaching the most powerful phase of their lives spiritually and sexually, to have long hair....perhaps because it's understood that it

The Spirituality of Hair
I'm nearing 52, and my hair has been down past my butt or just above, depending how much I have trimmed. You are totally correct, I am always
percieving pressure to chop it all off, cuz us old 'bags' are supposed to have super short old lady hair. Sorry if no one likes it. I DO. And I'm
never gonna cut it.
I have not looked at --- all --- the pages in this thread, about half so far. Has anyone mentioned 'The Vrill Society'?
This all makes so much sense to me now. I watched on The History Channel, the women who made up the Vrill Society. Unfortunately, ---------- they
were part of The Third Reich. The Reich was obsessed with ufos and alien contact, just as it was, the occult. the Vrill women were psychics who all
wore their hair super long, because they were convinced the hair was a psychic antenna, and for some reason, they were also convinced it was helping
them in their telepathic contact with ETs. After the fall of the Reich, the women vanished, and it is said that they went with the ETs and are on
I have a local internet paranormal talk show, which interviewed this gentleman, an African American man, who recounted his childhood abduction and ET
contact with a white woman with hair down near her feet or ankles.
