Tabula rasa

Haven't seen this term since... like... forever...

The Latin term of tabula rasa is translated as blank slate in modern English with Tabula as tablet, and rasa as scraped, erased.

Like... do you think the mind came into the world as a tabula rasa (blank slate)?  Or, perhaps, it ain't no tabula rasa?  (pardon me for my language... I just have a liking for the "ain't" usage. Something feeling really... kimoji...)

Apparently, Mr. Aristotle already brought up the notion of the mind as a tabula rasa although ain't nobody paid it no mind for more than 1000 years (or maybe little mind).
