What is the origin of reasoning? And is mind just a “Tabula Raza” (Blank Slate)?

Reasoning is the way human mind works. Mind works on experimental data. Mind is not like just a “tebula raza”. Mind is an effective machine that can do very complicated works on the “raw materials” of experimental or “sensory” data.”Knowledge” is the final product. Raw material is the “sensory data”. And this “sensory data” cannot be converted to “knowledge” without the involvement of a proper mechine which is “human mind”!

And how this machine works? In simple form, it works by making analogies and simple generalizations. In complicated form, it becomes deductive, mathematical, grammatical as well as poetically and musically balanced.
