Degrees of Error

      In fact the aastika philosophies all agree that there is aatmaa-anaatmaa adhyaasa; they just disagree about the extent to which this occurs. If the three statements: - I am mortal; I am a doer; I am an enjoyer; are considered, the Nyaaya and Vaisheshhika schools of philosophy claim that the first statement is an error but the second two are facts. Saa~Nkhya and Yoga schools, on the other hand, say the first two are errors and only the third is a fact. According to an advaitin, all three are errors.
