I am wondering, like Ascension is “social alpha”, Primal, “sexual alpha” and Spartan, “warrior alpha”, could Alchemist be seen as manifesting the qualities and principles of the “spiritual alpha”?
I guess the way I would state it is that across cultures authentic spiritual attainment brings a level of power, integrity, respect and wisdom that would be uniquely distinct from the other alpha archetypes. I am still working it out, but, as far as I can see, it authentically exists. Examples would be up for debate but some examples might be Carl Jung or certain Saints, Arhats, and Shamans from various traditions . Don Juan from Castaneda’s books seems like a great example, though he likely did not actually exist. But it would be a compelling study to see what characteristics someone with authentic spiritual power possesses.
A major aspect of spiritual traditions is meditating upon or attempting to model oneself upon significant spiritual figures. Christ, Saints, Bodhisattvas, The Buddha, A guru, etc.
Yoda in Star Wars and Gandalf in LOTR would probably be pretty good fictional examples. In fact, in Star Wars, status as a Jedi came from the integration of all aspects of the individual with spiritual attainment as the linchpin.
The Samurai possessed a code of conduct that was derived from Zen and essentially spiritual. We could also see groups like The Knights Templar as essentially being Spiritual Alphas. Shaolin Monks. The Order of Assassins. The Mystery traditions of ancient Rome. Many martial arts encourage a code of conduct and integrity that is intended to bring about qualities that I would describe as spiritually alpha.
