Tabula Rasa

1. A Latin phrase translated as “blank slate” or more literally as “erased slate” or Clean Slate. Originates from the Roman tabula that they used for notes. The slate started empty, upon which notes could be written, then erased to write again. 2.  The idea that people are born without built-in mental content and that therefore all knowledge comes from experience or perception. 3. Referenced in the writings of Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 BC.)



1. Not spoken: indicated tacit approval by smiling and winking. 2. Implied by or inferred from actions or statements: Management has given its tacit approval to the plan.

Tacit Paradigm Saboteur

Someone who says nothing remains silent and does not express or declare openly, by implied consent to go ahead with and that it is ok to Sabotage. This person operates on “I won’t fix mine if you don’t fix yours”, “I won’t look if you don’t look”, “I won’t know if you don’t know”, “I won’t plan if you won’t plan”, “I won’t act if you won’t act”, “I won’t learn if you won’t learn”, “I won’t work hard if you don’t work hard.” Tacit realities are deadly and are never true, but appear to be true due to the unspoken, unexpressed agreements.

Taken Care Of

An unspoken goal of many people who do not want to work or give anything. They often do nothing and have someone else work to make money to pay their bills. They either marry a rich person, inherit money, or marry a workhorse and obligate them into the rat race while they retire and pretend to be busy.


1. A clearly stated and specific ideal outcome (its quality attributes) of a system or process in written, visual or numeric form. 2. An objective or result aimed at.
