Since I have started meditation again I noticed I feel much more mentally stronger.
Scientist have shown that when we meditate our brain wave patterns emit alpha waves. When we are awake we emit beta waves.
My question is (and probably has never been tested) if there is a correlation between being an alpha male and any alpha waves in the brain of that person.
Since alpha waves are slower there is much more clarity and control in the person with them. I wonder if that is what makes an "alpha" male, a strong, controlling and dominant person?
In my view, if someone has more clarity and control within themselves (assuming that's what the brainwaves represent), they would probably act less like the traditional view of the Alpha male as being an outwardly tough, macho guy.
Why would they need to act that way? They already have the resources of the universe at their control through their own self-harmony. There's no need for a show of insecurity-driven bravado to prove that they are better than others...and wouldn't that insecurity cause more erratic patterns rather than calmer ones?
I would say that the most Alpha of Alpha males (in terms of powerful leadership) are not even noticeable.
