  • Hacking is one of the most commonly misunderstood skills.
  • In practice, hacking is mostly about understanding that there is often a more complicated layer of instructions which a simpler layer is built on top. 
  • The computer sits in hierarchies, so each level of abstraction simplifies and reduces the layer below
  • This thinking tool works for computers, but also other areas of life. 
  • Remember: everything you see is usually a simplification of a deeper reality.
  • Which can mean that the underlying system may be broken in a way you wouldn’t naively expect.
