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.

Metta,
Retro. :)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...
