I have been examining a set of beliefs I hold lately and have run into a question I haven't been able to answer. I'm wondering if anyone knows what (or even if) Buddhism has to say about the subject. I'm trying to find the source of some very specific beliefs and it would be helpful to know when beliefs first form. I know how they form, but are we capable of creating beliefs from the moment we are born? Infancy? At some later developmental stage?
