It is quite possible and IMO 100% certain to occur in each and every
transmitter. That does not make all transmissions 100% false or 100%
true. I have read again some of my own "transmissions" of some years
ago and found errors which I can *now* see were caused by my own wishful
thinking interfering with the teaching I received (and still do).
So - discrimination is the very first virtue we need to acquire and
apply on our individual journeys. And to discriminate means to ask
questions and challenge staements and assumptions. Gradually, I have
found, we seem to get closer to the Truth, but as a *Christian* writer
circa 14th century said, we cannot complete the work in *this* world.
