what do you mean antenna, and is that beneficial? is it due to the static effect of hair, you absorb certain things into the hair/head when its kept longer?
To those questioning the authenticity if the quote I put in the thread - I messaged a screenshot of the email on the discord and can give the screenshot or screen record to any user requesting authenticityAre you sure Ray Peat wrote that answer? The writing style seems slightly off and has some terms that I have never seen Ray use and seems like something you placed in by yourself
Royalty and free peoples have typically grown their hair out. Slaves and people going through boot camp or subservient training have had to shave their hair. Likely has hormonal consequences.
I know it's anecdotal, but John Lennon in 1969 with long hair seems to be much higher vibration and "nice" than John Lennon in 1970 with cropped hair, who comes across as caustic and hostile.
it is interesting, it does help to feel more, since you can feel the hairTo be honest I don't fully understand what people mean when they say hair acts like an antenna but I've read it in various places and what I understand from it in general is that it makes people more sensitive to things in general. Someone with long hair would be able to pick up subtle scents or something which they would be unable to do after their hair is cut off (I think that was a story I read about a Native American hired by the US military or something like that). But I don't know more about what it means in any specific detail.
I’ll give you a real world antenna example.
I’m a car mechanic and if one has a buzz cut, they will hit the head all the time while under the car and really hurt their head because there is no warning from any sensation.
If one grows the hair out, the sensation of the hair hitting sharp steel, sends a sensation to the head where one can feel this and stop moving which prevents injury to the head. The longer the hair, the more time one has to react.
This is a crude example, Im will to wager that this extends more things.
I have no evidence but I have an incling that longer hair makes one more aware of ones surroundings in a dynamic environment like driving.

Interesting - never thought about this
This is interesting to - i think about these things when i see guys with buzzcuts acting more aggressively
how? it boosts serotonin to wear hats?"I notice when I wear a cap or any type of headwear I get a great boost in temps/metabolism and feel serotonin lower a lot"
