No one can tell why exactly our ancestors kept long hair, but that was perhaps what made them the supernatural heroes we know them to be.
A hitherto unknown study reveals a startling truth – the strength of our extrasensory perceptions depend on our hair length.
The American army recruited long-haired Native Americans for the Vietnam War because of their supernatural tracking abilities.
But after enlistment, the very Native Americans who proved their worth in tracking failed in the same objective.
When army top brass probed why the trackers failed, they discovered that the reason was the length of their hair.
Upon enlistment, the recruits were given a buzz cut – the standard army haircut.
Senior members of the Native American recruits claimed that they lost their power of ‘sense’ that helped them locate or be warned of enemy movements.
The army conducted another test which paired two trackers, one with long hair and the other with short.
The long-haired tracker sensed an approaching enemy while sleeping and escaped even before footsteps of the enemy could be heard.
He intuited that an enemy was about to attack him and he ‘kills’ the enemy in a counter-attack.
The tests reveal that the long hair of an Native American actually made them exceptional trackers.
The reason is simple: the hair is an extension of the nervous system, writes C.Young.
“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,” he writes.
You must be aware that your hair emits energy too!
Just rub a comb on your hair and bring it closer to paper strips.
That long-hair dude you see in your neighbourhood or, in rare cases, the office has a higher extrasensory perception level than anyone else.
You may read the entire study here. Note that this study was silent about women, who usually have long hair. And since the study was conducted years ago by the US Army, it is not clear whether the same effect would be seen in people from different societies and genes.
But Young warned that cutting of hair not only disconnected someone from the environment but was also “contributes to sexual frustration”.
So here is a food for thought. Was it because of their hair length that our ancestors in India were so forward-thinking? The rishis, the kings and all?
