Pandora was created by Hephaestus as a punishment for mankind who had recently received fire from Prometheus. She was endowed with beauty, cunning, grace, dexterity, curosity ect ect.
Then she was presented to Epimetheus. She brought a small
box with her. She did not know what was in this box for it was a gift from the Gods. When she opened the box out swarmed all the calamities of mankind. Thus comes the phrase "to open a Pandora's box"..

The phrase Pandora's box can be used in a psychological sense to refer to a seemingly intangible ideal that is within your grasp, but yet cannot be practiced. When a person is in a situation where their childhood curiosity overcomes their adult notions of right and wrong they are in a Pandoraesque situation. If presented with knowledge that is very interesting to not only you, but to other people, and you are told not to disclose this information, you are put in a quandary; whether to "open Pandora's box" i.e. tell other people your knowledge. Also if presented with something beautiful and upon opening it you realize that it was better left untouched because it causes great harm and a minute amount of good, you have opened a Pandora's box..

Pandora: It is a prolific source of troubles. Pandora's real name is Hephaestus. Yes, she did open the box. The way I would use the word pandora's box is, Would you have opened pandora's box?.
