Hi there Germanic.....(I think my keyboard's broken) canyouhandletruth!

I've added some pics to confirm this.
This guy is quite obviously gazing into his crystal ball.

And this lady is definitely "channeling" a higher power.

I think the long hair would give them these special powers!

Anyone can be a skeptic and a critic from the outside. It's an entirely different thing to experience it from the inside...

They sure can. I don't doubt psychic powers one bit, or even long hair for that matter. I do have a problem with a certain previously banned member calling me out with a cheesy one liner on another thread though, and was thinking "what an odd thing to say". I read through his posting style on his 6 rapidly posted threads, and realized who it was.

haha right. weirder things have happened in our world/universe! so i wouldn't be surprised. our universe is full of things we dont understand/mystery. ascetics, rastafarians have this belief that long hair and long beards pull/channel energy from the earth into ones soul. who are we as westerners addicted to western logic and technicity to tell them they are wrong? their world is different than ours and vice versa. quantum physics and dark energy are a hell of a drug.

yeah we all have a choice to not see the poetic and esoteric sides of things and merely just rationalize them down to ultilitarian and or reductionist levels. no harm there. but that doesnt make the opposite not true. different cultures and people see the world in different ways from different angles. the beauty and scale of our universe allows for multiplicity ....Rhizome not just binary.

I read a while on ATS about army rangers and the hair test. I had it bookmarked, but alas it's gone. But I'm sure you'll find it if you search for it.

It went something like they took two people, one had their hair cut off and the other had let their hair grow long. The army saw that the ranger with the longest hair had better tracking skills and was more "in tune" with his surroundings whereas the one with the hair cut wasn't. So this leads me to believe that something might very well be in our hair.

Serves them very well to know when they're brushing up against something. Doesn't tell them much about psychic telepathy.

If you're sticking your head in a hole, maybe bushy hair would be useful for the same. Personally, mine's just sort of curly and in the way when I grow it. Buzzcut (sometimes with a short mohawk, although the customers sometimes just do not get the mohawk thing - alas) is much more comfortable. Especially in the summer.

A long beard, now, that has utility. I can save several meals in there if it's mid-chest. In addition, the rate at which it slaps me in the back of the neck when I'm riding on my motorcycle gives me feedback on my speed. I can also gnaw on it or fiddle with it, which is a nice distraction when I'm thinking. No psychic or metaphysical inputs from it yet, other than "you've got a bit of tangle over here on the left".

Not much of a justification for believing something. "Ah, weird things have happened, so I think maybe this can of beer will suddenly turn into the Winged Victory of Samothrace...nah, oh well back to meditating on my third chakra"

Yep, a Rasta, just who I want to be.

Ok, here's you a poem about my hair:

My hair's too long,
it must be wrong.
So buzzcut 2's
in wait for you.
This keeps wife happy
she likes it nappy.

Yeah, I think I read it somewhere else though. I think it is quite true...While the skeptics would like to twist this around and say 'Long hair doesn't automatically make you telepathic.', they fail to see that it does have benefits.. Short hair does indeed make your mind more susceptible, as long hair gives you more intuition or 'gut feeling'.

How do you know?

What if it's long butt hair instead? Or having your wisdom teeth removed? Or never trimming your ear hair, or eyebrows?

Because I am relying on first-hand experience is how I 'know'. I've had long hair before and can tell a significant and noticeable difference. When I let my hair grow, I have that 'knowing' sense. I will often receive information from out of nowhere. Little thoughts that enter my head as if by accident, yet after being checked out, turn correct. When I cut my hair, I am more 'open' to doing what people want me to do.

What if you're just imagining it? That's one of those reasons we have the whole "scientific method" after all, to sort of weed through that sort of thing. People are wired up to look for patterns, it works pretty well except when it gets out of hand, like with pareidolia. It's a shortcoming of stochastic filtering systems, alas.

justification is .00001% of the universe. that's a lot. the rest is unjustified or never going to be justified.

I knew this before I read it...

Let me ask you something....If you get bit by a snake, do you get skeptical whether it is poisonous or passive? What if your leg turns black and you go to the hospital? When the Doc gets ready to give you the anti-venom, are you going to say, "WHOA Doc, hold up. Are you sure it's the right one?"

I seriously doubt it...Stop being so skeptical about everything..Life isn't that complicated...There is no reason to view everything through the skeptical goggles of a 3 year old in order to comply with 'denying ignorance'....

Oddly enough, I would look at what bit me and see if it's poisonous, if I can identify it, which I'm fairly good at.

If it's a king snake that I just surprised and he grabbed me, then I would still go to the doc for some antibiotics, snake mouths are nasty, but I wouldn't crash the car getting there.



What if your leg turns black and you go to the hospital? When the Doc gets ready to give you the anti-venom, are you going to say, "WHOA Doc, hold up. Are you sure it's the right one?"


Getting the type of snake right is so important, they won't give you monovalent anti-venom unless you can identify it. You'll get polyvalent instead, which is somewhat less effective and has more likelihood of giving you a reaction.

Nonetheless, the understanding of snake bites and the development of anti-venoms and other supportive medical treatments arose from the scientific method, not sitting around with people contemplating koans or discussing how they believe they may feel after a haircut. Feeling intuitive or credulous depending on how long your hair is, is horribly subjective at best.



.Life isn't that complicated...There is no reason to view everything through the skeptical goggles of a 3 year old in order to comply with 'denying ignorance'....


Ask Blondlot about N-rays. It's really easy to subjectively interpret the world, especially with something as vague and internal as intuition, and just be wrong.

The scientific method is used to weed between subjective illusory data and fact. If it's real, then it ought to be easy to test for properly, if it's as obvious as you say.

No, no...See the scientific method is about conformity...Science is almost as bad as religion in the department of making everybody think the same way. By the way, nice way to attack the metaphors....What you are really avoiding is what they were implying...It's cool though whatever. Have fun being ignored, I have small amounts of time. I have even less times for shills or just intentionally obtuse people.

I think we should strive to understand what we can understand. By learning about things, what they do, why they do it and how they interrelate to other things.

I don't believe that contemplating Master Hakuin is a way to do that, although it might be a nice way to pass the time.

Not so much. It's for collecting data, forming hypotheses, finding a way to test those hypotheses through experiment, and seeing if your beliefs actually fit what happens. It's a great way to cut through subjective bs.

Well, facing facts on something tends to do that.



By the way, nice way to attack the metaphors....What you are really avoiding is what they were implying...It's cool though whatever. Have fun being ignored, I have small amounts of time. I have even less times for shills or just intentionally obtuse people.


Ah, one of those that can't face disagreement without invoking "shills". What or whom would I be shilling for?

I'm not so much attacking your snake metaphor than handing it back to you modified to my point of view. A snake bite is so much more objective than some vague feeling of intuition following a hair cut. If you got your hair cut and went blind in one eye, consistently, that might be different.

You give me a non-subjective means by which hair affects intuition and I'll be less flippant. Dude, it's hair. It's strands of dead cells. Why don't your fingernails give you intuition? Or the epidermal layers of your skin? Or dandruff? By what way would they contribute to intuition? How do you propose to even measure intuition?

Or, without a mechanism, have there ever been any hair length/intuition studies that have REALLY been done, unlike the indian tracker fairy tale?

edit to add - you really ought to read the story of Blondlot and the N-rays. It's very applicable to the discussion. It's easy to delude yourself.
