Polyamory is Life Hacking

If you're reading this, you're probably a hacker.

And you may not have any real programming or technology skills to speak of.

But you are a hacker.

"Someone who makes innovative customizations ..."

"Someone who combines excellence, playfulness, cleverness and exploration ..."

"Someone who re-builds, re-models, and re-creates ... to make it faster, better, or do something that the original design was never intended to do."

Yup. That's a hacker.

Polyamory is for life hackers.

If you're Polyamorous:

  • You're open to new ideas;
  • You're not afraid to tinker;
  • You're not convinced that the traditional way is the right way to do anything;
  • You're ripping apart the very fabric of social expectation and redefining it to suit you;
  • You're customizing your relationships and adding your own features.
  • You're interested in learning along the way and expanding your skills.

Reinventing everything is a constant creative exercise. Something's gone dreadfully wrong if it's become stagnant, predictable, and static. That's when the Universe is urging you: Go ahead. Hack it. Change it. Learn from it. Make it better.

The revolution will not be televised.

Indeed. It is too bad that we cannot pull these concepts into relationships of all forms.
