Tabula Rasa

Tabula Rasa:

Tabula rasa is the epistemological theory that people are born without built-in mental content and that their knowledge comes from experience and perception. Generally proponents of the tabula rasa thesis favour the “nurture” side of the nature versus nurture debate, when it comes to aspects of one’s personality, social and emotional behaviour, and intelligence.

The term in Latin equates to the English “blank slate” (or more accurately, “scraped tablet”) (which refers to writing on a slate sheet in chalk) but comes from the Roman tabula or wax tablet, used for notes, which was blanked by heating the wax and then smoothing it to give a tabula rasa

I think of Tabula Rasa as the inherent knowledge we have. (Nature). Like everything in life, there are two sides to every coin. For every manufactured, predestined planned, there are always the possibilities of unforeseen changes in the path.

Wrote some lyrics for a song idea. Out of context, naturally…

 

Tabula Rasa

Facts they’ll use dumb us down
Words split meaning apart
Nothing in context
Do you even have a heart?

Religion takes us straight to Hell
Politics drains of hope
Banks rob out of purse
And the media sells

The chessboards been arraigned,
The opponent thinks they’ve won!
This match is preordained,
But I choose to play for fun!

No more need for pulling
not a problem can’t be solved
We approach to childhood’s end
With more need for Gods

Even when our resistance
Resembles our prison,
We rebel the way we know
Love! Love!

Evil demons fight inside
To take away my reason
We rebel the way we know
Love! Love!
