Global Skywatch

connected with the cosmos

I have published several articles here regarding the function of the hair growing out of our heads (search this site for “hair”). There is more to it than most understand. History is replete with examples of warriors losing powers when shorn, or retaining inexplicable senses with their long hair.

We long-hairs cannot quantify differences nor can short-hairs know what they are missing. A few days ago one of those unaccountable things happened to me.

I felt an urgent need to take both dogs for an off-leash walk up the road; something I NEVER DO. I tried to rationalize the urge away, but then let it take me to the far side of the road (because the off-leash dogs went there) just in time to see something I really needed to see. (Vague, I know, but the whole story would take pages).

I spent much time since dealing with the complexities of what I learned, only later replaying what got me to the exact right place at exactly the right time to learn it.

Just lucky?

Perhaps.

I’m thinking not.

Napoleon was a firm believer in luck. Some historians say he was supersticious. I think it was a lot deeper than that.

The Jefferson quotation to the right attributes it to work. That certainly explains much good fortune, but there is still more to it.

By now you know where I am going with this.

Man is among the few beings in the world that perceive colors. A dog’s sense of smell is 1,000 to 10,000,000 times more sensitive than a human’s (depending on the breed). Some say crows can from a distance perceive life and absence of life in a body.

To assume we sense everything in our world that can be sensed is foolish.

Equally silly is to think nature, our creator, mistakenly had long hair grow out of the area surrounding our brains.

Friday I was in the right place on the right day, in the right hour in the very 30-second time slice I had to be there.

Lucky?

Quinky-dinky?

Hair?

Suffice to say I am not rushing out to get a hair-ectomy any time soon.
