Just wanna say that I felt you really summed up the purpose of the entire sub-culture and the cyber-locks very nicely.

I consider the dreadfalls worn in the cybergoth sub-culture to be in a pseudo spiritual sensuality. Cybergoth is largely based on artistic expression inspired by the modern primitive movement. It's kind of a mixture taken from various books and movies about cyberpunk and post apocalyptic settings. Like modifying self, environment and objects to suit ones own needs.

In reality, I don't feel it has much relation to that anymore....it's just a pretty way of dressing by people mildly interested in counter-culture...

Question here, wondering if anybody knows the answer. In Rastafarian beliefs, is there at all a time where it would be okay to cut off your locks? For instance, something like having a child? Or anything I suppose that so life changing, you cut em off and start your journey all over again? Just wondering. Thanks in advance.

No a true rasta wouldn't ever have a reason to do this. :)

In a sense that would make him no longer a rasta, As rasta is way of life and not a religion, live as your ancestors lived before you, so to take a pair ofscissors and cut your hair would be going against that! hope this helps :)
