Why do some hairs move?
Somewhere herein, Patti said:
"When certain hairs on your head and body move while ones right next to them are dead-still, there simply is no explanation except whatever the "pathogen" is that has invaded our bodies"
Interesting. So, I resolve to investigate:
I look at my arm, it's got a bunch of hairs on them, up to nearly an inch long. I blow on them, they move. I blow very gently, ONLY ONE HAIR MOVES!
That one there. It's a longer hair, kind of lonely out there on its own, it's also a bit kinked.
So, here I'm theorizing, that hair is an older hair, that's nearly at the end of its life cycle, it's kinked because its internal structure is breaking down, making it loose rigidity. As it's at the end of its life cycle, its root will not be firmly embedded in the follicle, in fact there is probably another hair growing, pushing it out.
I can blow very very gently towards that patch of skin, and I can't feel the air movement at all. yet the hair still moves and occasionally a few other very isolated hairs move. Since I can do this, it seems quite possible that small air currents might do the same.
The point is Patti - there is an explanation as to why only individual hairs move. I was able to demonstrate this with just a few minutes of experiments. There are probably several other explanations as well. There is no need to go for the most complex explanation possible, just because you can't immediately think of a simple explanation.
