Default Can a born beta/piggy/dog/monkey overcome and prevail?

Inspired by Fultz powerful post in the other thread I find myself wondering.

Can a beta ascend past beta? Or are they always a beta?

Will a beta just shrivel up and die like a festered wound?
Or will they possibly blossom into a tier below alpha given the right circumstances?

Will a monkey ape his way till death? Or can he learn a few tricks?

Will a piggy gorge for life? Or can he delay dat instant gratification.

Will a dog follow his pack leader? Or can he lead?

Share stories of failures and success in this thread.

Roosevelt sticks out as an exception having defeated childhood weakness to become a ruff ryda.

Why do Muslims not eat pork because pigs are ďnot cleanĒ yet they wipe their ass with their hands?

Whatís up with that?

Do you understand that betas in sociology are usually scientists and experts that are most likely to overthrow the alpha and become the alphas themselves?

That's a very dynamic point.

The hierarchy is in flux.

What’s up with that?

Pigs are najis.
Pigs eat nasty things, flip around in their excrement and when undercooked are linked with transmission of parasites trichonoma.


Only wash with the left hand and that's with toilet paper or bidet or hose or whatever available.
Left hand is considered dirty hand.
And of course using soap and water.

Handshakes only with right hand.

But don't take my word for it read up on hygiene laws

Pigs eat just as many nasty things as chicken. They don't flip in their excrement, they flip in dirt. They have a dedicated shitting place unlike chicken, who if undercooked contain salmonela. So why do you eat chicken, but not pork?

The whole alpha and beta thing people harp on so often comes from the kind of person normal people would roll their eyes at.....

Itís fundamentally true in nature that some are just more prone to be the man than others but a lot of the shot that happens between sentient beings?

Itís just Behavioral and through repetition yes....you can change it.

I donít suppose you can change who you are inside but you can change the perception people have of you and come to be treated like whatever you think an alpha is.

I think Hierarchies definitely exist in any human situation, altho it doesnt mean it’s the same alpha in every situation. On the basketball court Lebron is the Lakers alpha, because hes the most experienced, talented, confident etc. Hes the most qualified to lead on that particular issue.

If you put all those guys in a kitchen and say create a five star meal, someone else might emerge as the group’s head chef, depending on who knows what theyre doing.

Of course in most situations Lebron will still be the alpha, mainly because he’s HUNG and that carries a ton of weight in any situation.

But you get the idea.

Because a group of men wrote a book to gain followers and wealth at the expense of others not knowing what the hell they were talking about. End result is shit that doesn't make sense like chickens being just as dirty as pigs, yet chicken is just fine to eat according to religious teachings.

Of all examples to use as an alpha you used a 3/9 fraud that pales in comparison to the greats that came before him? A man that even snoop dog calls a ho?

Someone like Kawhi is an alpha. Lebron? Not even close.
