“The name comes from an old behavioral experiment Michael told us about. There were scientists experimenting with rats, to verify their behavioral models. They expected the usual “alpha” and “beta” groupings – the beta rats being basically followers, taking the leftovers from the alpha rats. The alphas establishing territories, taking the choicest mates, and generally lording it over the betas.

But then they found something else: there were rats that established territories and picked the best mates, but did not attempt to dominate the betas. They called them gammas. So, that’s why we call our system Gamma Central; it’s an interaction center for Gamma humans. Gammas are not content to be followers and work to get the best out of life. But they have no desire to rule others.”
