Explanation[edit]

It appears that Garfield is attending a hermeticism course. Hermeticism is a religion involving magic. The "Law of Contagion" he mentions is the belief that if two beings or objects touch one another, then they share a magical link unless a banishing act (i.e. an exorcism) is performed to destroy it.

With this in mind, it's likely that Garfield is cutting off Jon's hair to form a link, presumably to annoy him more than he already does.

The author writes:[edit]

The idea of Garfield studying hermetic magic just appeals to me.
