The Mind

Once the mind was considered a blank page only written on by experience.
Today we favour the seed and soil theory.
For example distinguishing colors, lines, patterns and shapes are innate, but doing anything with them can only be learned.
But, as one cynic once said, as we find out more and more, about less and less, the point will soon come when we will know everything about nothing.
The fact is that the mind thinks with ideas, not informations, so acquiring knowledge is useless unless one learns how to use it.
A dictionary may contain all the words, but owning it doesn't make you a writer.
