master is actually just a pointer to a commit (”hash" in your terms), in
your case, to aaa. So if you switch to another commit (git checkout eee),
you can no longer be on master (aaa). You can git-reset, if you don't need
aaa's changes any more, but bare in mind that it can mess up things if you
are using remotes.

Cheers,
Gergely
