Let \(\alpha \neq 1\) be a complex number such that the distance from \(\alpha^2\) to 1 is twice the distance from \(\alpha\) to 1, while the distance from \(\alpha^4\) to 1 is four times the distance from \(\alpha\) to 1. Find all possible values of \(\alpha\).

The possible values of alpha are 1 + i and 1 - i.
