Innatism is a philosophical and epistemological doctrine that holds that the mind is born with ideas/knowledge, and that therefore the mind is not a "blank slate" at birth. This is saying that we all have certain inherent abilities such as finding resolve to assure mental-emotional and physical health.
All Humans are Born with Inherent Knowledge
Evidence for innatism is being found by neuroscientists working on the Blue Brain Project. They discovered that neurons transmit signals despite an individual’s experience. It had been previously assumed that neuronal circuits are made when the experience of an individual is imprinted in the brain, making memories. Researchers at Blue Brain discovered a network of about fifty neurons which they reckoned were building blocks of more complex knowledge but contained basic innate knowledge that could be combined in different more complex ways to give way to acquired knowledge, like memory.

I'm going to tell you something and if you choose not to believe it you will lose something valuable for the second time. When you were born you came into this world knowing everything that you needed to know about how to survive, and how to live happy which in turn served to make you healthy and able to live for a very long, long time. What happened to you is not your parents fault because the same thing happened to them soon after they were born. You were never meant to experience the kind of stress that you did as a child and as an adolescent and as a Teenager. Like all of us who was ever born you were meant to live a long time happy and healthy. It was never meant for you to experience stress the way you have. You may have heard of the term anxieties of life, and you may have not ever heard the term until now however, anxieties of life Is A Lie because the life you were meant to live would never have produced anxiety or depression or for that matter sickness as well. What you have lost or rather have been blinded from is still with you and you are still able to recognize it when the right time arrives. That time may be now if you are ready to receive it once again. All you have to do is stop for a minute and reflect on the reasons why you do anything at all, what motivates you, and the reasons for it. Think about what you were told that you should do and why you should do it and who told you and then think again. Did it come from you or did it come from an external source? If you are above the age of 25 then you are an adult and your brain supposed to be fully developed. Now I want you to ask yourself if you feel that you are a fully developed adult or perhaps that you are not. Think about it for a moment. Are you doing what you want to do? Are you happy with the things in your life and the way it's going? What about your future? Think about whomever told you to look forward to it, and who told you what you should strive for? Didn't they tell you that life was going to be a struggle and that you should prepare yourself for difficulty. Now I want you to stop and think for a minute. Is that what you would have told yourself or would you have just lived?
Plato and Descartes are prominent philosophers in the development of innatism and the notion that the mind is already born with ideas, knowledge and beliefs. Both philosophers emphasize that experiences are the key to unlocking this knowledge but not the source of the knowledge itself. Essentially, no knowledge is derived exclusively from one's experiences. We can show you how it is possible to relearn this amazing and natural ability to realize and recognize your true value as a thinking and unique individual with a mind of your own.
The study of Bio-psychodynamics is set to revolutionize the way we view the world and the people in it to make possible our own natural ability to live happy and healthier lives. All done by researching and gaining insight and a new perspective about life and of living.

Plato was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.
René Descartes was a French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist. Dubbed the father of modern western philosophy, much of subsequent Western philosophy is a response to his writings, which are studied closely to this day.
