I agree, Rev. Tony. "Thoughts" should be capitalized in Mn.28.3.

"The goal of the curriculum has been achieved. thoughts turn to Heaven and away from hell."

Mn.28.3

There is a simple capitalization error.

"The goal of the curriculum has been achieved. thoughts turn to Heaven and away from hell."


The on-line version is correct.

Love
Rev. Tony

Mn.13.7

There are a couple of typos here. There doesn't appear to be a space between the 2nd and 3rd sentences.

"There are no "half sacrifices."You cannot give up Heaven partially."


Later in the paragraph there are 2 commas after the word "believe."

"Yet a split in which you surely will believe,, because you have ...."


Love

Tom said, "... humans being human and making errors." Very funny. I didn't mean the question as a form of chastisement. It's unusual when something that was correct before has now gone wrong. Since I do a lot of republishing, I thought it might be useful to figure out how this happened so that I could avoid the issue myself.

We are working to clean up errors that were originally there. If our cleaning up process causes NEW errors to be introduced, it is worth looking at and trying to figure out why it happened, so that we can continue to make progress.

I wasn't scolding. I thought it would be useful information both for CIMS and for me and the CMC.

Tom's response reminded me of the Hal 9000 computer in the iconic movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.
"Well, I don't think there is any question about it. It can only be attributable to human error. This sort of thing has cropped up before, and it has always been due to human error. " (HAL 9000 in 2001)

Mn.8.4-5

Paragraph 8.4 has the wrong style attached to it. That mistake, as well as the lower case Ws, will be correct next printing.

How do these things happen? Must be humans being human and making errors.

Mn.8.4.5

This is the first time we've ever posted a correction in the Manual. Doesn't anybody read the Manual. :-)

Paragraph 4 is a different font size than the other paragraphs. Possible 2 pts. larger? How does that happen?

Paragraph 5 has 2 capitalization problems:

"Is it harder to dispel the belief of the insane in a larger hallucination as opposed to a small one? will he agree more quickly to the unreality of a louder voice he hears than to a a softer one? will he dismiss more easily a whispered demand to kill than a shout?"


In both cases the "W" in "Will" should have a capital letter because it starts the sentence.

These were correct in earlier printings. How do errors like this creep in?

Love
Rev. Tony
