Yesterday late night I didn't know what to do, so I started reading about "Social Engineering", quite an interesting topic it is. I learnt that not just computer systems but also any other system or for that matter every system is hackable. The best and most intriguing part of Social Engineering is that the victims themselves give away supposedly innocuous, non-vital information to a Social Engineer (disguised as someone else) and are happy to do so! (Ref book: The Art of Deception, Controlling Human Element of Security)
Today morning I read about pain being a moral good (http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/06/08/is-pain-a-moral-good). Here it is argued that pain is an important part of life, so natural pain should not be inhibited, but we humans have successfully hacked into secrets of our body and devised a drug (anaesthesia) to nullify sensation of pain!
We humans have been hacking a lot into nature and its secrets, but in the process disturbing its balance and defacing it... we are good at hacking into but not so proper at coming out without inflicting any damage.
Can we say that when a person falls in love, the person whom a person falls for has unknowingly hacked into this person's system. Sounds stupid, isn't it?
