Now it's part of who I am. To me it seems strange for men to be shaving their faces and heads or chopping their hair off. Seems even sillier than wearing ties. One of my cosmic jokes about myself when people ask me about my long beard and hair is saying that they are my antennae into the universe . . . so I enjoyed reading the “truth” recently at the site link someone posted on Facebook.
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 . . . hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment.
From Cultural History (Wikipedia article) Also, males having short, cut hair (or a shaven head) is often viewed as being under society's control, such as while in military service or prison or as punishment for a crime, while males having long hair signifies being outside of the mainstream.
