Anyone make the connection with Locke and the 3rd ep. title?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I know this may be a reach, but if anyone is famillar with Philosophy, John Locke was a 17th century philosopher who was one of the originators of the "Tabula Rasa" theory of existince.

"Tabula Rasa" was the name of the 3rd episode. John is the first name of the boar hunting, formerly handicapped castaway.

Here's a bit of explanation:

"Locke was an empiricist, viz., all knowledge comes to us through experience. "No man's knowledge here can go beyond his experience." There is no such thing as innate ideas; there is no such thing as moral precepts9; we are born with an empty mind, with a soft tablet (tabula rasa) ready to be writ upon by experimental impressions. Beginning blank, the human mind acquires knowledge through the use of the five senses and a process of reflection. Not only has Locke's empiricism been a dominant tradition in British philosophy, but it has been a doctrine which with its method, experimental science, has brought on scientific discoveries ever since, scientific discoveries on which our modern world now depends."
