What exactly was Sati's error in MN38?

What exactly do you think it was? The way I read it, Satis error was thinking that consciousness is a permanent entity which continues. Your thoughts?

Greetings Porpoise,

Yes, that was Sati's error.

Retro. :)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
