THE SEER’S NOTE ABOUT THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY THINKER JOHN LOCKE:
“What did John Locke mean by Tabula Rasa?
• What did John Locke mean by tabula rasa? (17th century) In Locke’s philosophy, tabula rasa was the theory that at birth the (human) mind is a “blank slate” without rules for processing data, and that data is added and rules for processing are formed solely by one’s sensory experiences.”
A Quote from Google:
Locke is describing the pollution of the mind by social conditioning. He sees the mind of a newborn as a blank slate upon which social conditioning determines the laws that govern a specific physical reality and its limitations.
The Seer expounds on Locke’s philosophy, by seeing the birth of every new moment as a blank slate upon which the thoughts coupled with feelings can rewrite the laws that determine a new reality.
Yes, very profound is the moment.
Thank you for this.
