Long Hair Increases Intuition And Boosts Your 6th Sense, Military Study Reveals
Keeping your hair long may look like just another style choice, and people who leave their hair to grow are often seen as hipsters, hippies, or just plain lazy. But, an impressive, different story appeared during the time of the Vietnam war, and you won’t believe what it is!
Back in the Vietnam war, there was a woman, for this purpose of this article, we will call her Jenny. Jenny married a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical Hospital. He used to work with combat veterans who were suffering from PTSD.
Jenny recalls that one evening her husband arrived home with a thick official folder in his hands. He held hundreds of pages of studies commissioned by the government. The contents of those documents shocked her husband. And from that moment, the husband, who in the past was a conservative man, left his beard to grow. He never cut it again. These sudden activities surprised Jenny. Especially since other traditional men in the organization did the same thing. When Jenny read the documents, she began to realize why:
Throughout the Vietnam War, special forces in the war department sent undercover experts to comb American Native American Reservations to look for skilled scouts. They looked for tough young men trained to move stealthily through rough terrain. They wanted men who were outstanding in tracking. Before approaching these men, they extensively documented them as experts in tracking and survival.
After they selected these Native American trackers, their abilities seemed to disappear almost immediately after being recruited. Severe casualties and failures of performance made the government contract expensive testing to be done on these recruits, and what they discovered was unreal.
When they asked the recruits about their failure to perform as expected, all the older recruits said the same thing. They said that after receiving the military haircut, they could no longer sense the enemy. They said that they lost their 6th sense.
As a test, the institute recruited new Native American trackers and let them keep their long hair. After that, they paired two men together who had the same scores on all the tests. One man would keep their long hair, and the other would receive a military haircut.
Then the two men retook the tests.
Surprisingly, the man with long hair scored higher every time, and the man with short hair failed the tests even though he had passed before receiving the haircut.
The recruit needed to sleep in the woods. Then, an armed ‘enemy’ surrounds the sleeping man. The man who kept their hair long could sense the enemy before the enemy had a chance to get close to him. He could sense the danger before the enemy approached, giving him time to escape. He could sense the danger even before any sounds from the approaching enemy were audible.
In some other versions of the test, the long-haired man could sense that the enemy would perform a physical attack. He then followed his ‘sixth sense‘ and stayed still, acting as though he were asleep, and quickly grabbing the attacker and ‘killing’ him as the attacker tried to reach down to strangle him.
In the documents, the recommendation stated that all Native American trackers be exempt from military haircuts. They required all trackers kept their hair long.
But how does it work? It has to do with the way we evolved. Every part of our body has a purpose, and when we lose touch with our bodies and ourselves, we lose the true power we all have.
Hair is an extension of the nervous system, just like skin. In many ways, it works like ‘feelers’ or ‘antennae’ that transmit enormous amounts of data to the brainstem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.
People often think that hair is just an accessory. However, it’s hard to know if this is true or not. Nonetheless, it’s an intriguing story.
