Trivia: Tabula Rasa is a philosophical term. It's a school of thought founded primarily by John Locke and it holds that human beings are born as "blank slates" - that is, they have no knowledge or experience. This is contrasted with a belief system that all humans have certain ideas at birth; "God exists" is one commonly put forward.
Trivia: A Dictionary definition of the phrase "Tabula Rasa" is: Latin, smoothed or erased tablet. 1) the mind in its hypothetical primary blank or empty state before receiving outside impressions. 2) something existing in its original pristine state. Fitting, don't you think?

Trivia: The episode, Tabula Rasa, is very aptly named. Tabula Rasa (Latin) means 'blank slate' (which refers to being born 'blank' and that intellect and behavior only comes from experience and perception) and is appropriate since the characters lost all their memories due to Willow's spell.
