Aloha!

It is the end of Mar. Didn’t write blog post in the last 60 days. Didn’t do exercise twice every week. Other than these, the last two months were very productive. Read, listened and learnt a lot.

Read a few books and some of them were very inspiring!
NLP: The Essential Guide
Thinking, Fast and Slow
愛到極致是放手
阿羅哈!Aloha:我在修藍博士身邊學到的清理話語

I am lucky to read them. I understand more about myself: my decision is vulnerable to framing, anchoring and cues; my thinking is not always rational and reliable; I unconsciously substitute difficult questions by simple and unrelated questions; I confuse truth with familiarity; I exaggerate the consistency and coherency of what I see; I seek cause for everything, for the sake of causality, which is indeed just a random occurrence; I make rational judgements and decisions by consulting my emotions; there are conflicts between my remembering self and experiencing self… I also learn and practice a better way to love myself: through awareness, acceptance and surrender.

We all live inside our self-created minds.  As soon as sensory input comes into your brain, it is interpreted. You assign a meaning to it. This is really important because this happens so fast aren’t even aware of it. The interesting thing is that as soon as a meaning is assigned, you have an emotion. You create a feeling about it. – NLP: The Essential Guide

We are far too willing to reject the belief that much of what we see in life is random. The world in our heads is not a precise replica of the reality; our expectations about the frequency of events are distorted by the prevalence and emotional intensity of the message to which we are exposed. – Thinking, Fast and Slow

很多人喜歡問:人活著是為了什麼?活著有目的嗎?我問:你去遊樂園、去逛公園、看電影是為了什麼?有什麼目的嗎?人生最大的挑戰就在此:在這個有好有壞、黑白分明、無法盡如人意的二元對立的世界中,找到活著的樂趣。親愛的,這就是你人生的目的。《愛到極致是放手》

修藍博士:「今天辛苦你了。我想告訴你,別想要變成任何人。我希望你就是你。只要你心裡想要變成某個人,就會失去每一個可以放手的機會。這麼做或許需要勇氣,不過當你承諾要成為自己的時候,你看見的東西才是現在應該正視的。這就是我們應該努力的。光芒隨時都照耀著我們,不會消失。愛沒有起始,也沒有終點;愛從未間斷地湧出。所以不要等到未來的某一天,我希望你做現在的自己。只有你能開始清理。只有你,才能掀開遮蓋光線的蓋子。在光線照射下,第一眼看見的或許是垃圾。那是我們應該放手的問題,它們一直等著被我們發現。最大的才華,就是身為『真正的自己』。所有的存在都具備著自己原有的才華而誕生。當你發現自己的才華時,在你身邊的每一個原子和分子也才會發現各自的才華。就算不當好孩子也沒關係。為了讓妳能做自己,所以才希望你清理現在這個自己,這是你今天最重要的任務。」《阿羅哈!Aloha》

Enjoyed a lot of podcasts too! Especially some very informative episodes from Security Now!
#442: reflection DDoS attack
#444-446: iOS Security part 1, 2 & 3

The iPhone 5S is a crypto masterpiece: everything stored inside is encrypted, Enclave is a logical independent processor physically inside the A7, communication between the subsystems TouchID, A7 and Enclave is authenticated and encrypted, lightning connection is authenticated (hence there is the MFi program), as well the adhoc peer-to-peer WiFi-based AirDrop! The podcasts are much more interesting than the 33-page iOS Security white paper. Thank you Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte!

Security is a chain of links which is only as strong as its weakest link.

Unknown unknown to known unknown. It is a journey. Thank you for sharing your time with me and hope you find the information shared in this post enjoyable and useful.

感恩。
