A typographical error is not always a spelling mistake.
It may only be a momentary lapse of attention
in the execution of a practised skill
that is performed in 'default mode'.
Mistakes, on the other hand, are the result of a lack of knowledge.
We can recognise the error easily,
but mistakes are uncovered only by new knowledge.
We often treat sin as an error.
Our psychological constructs are supposed to unfold
in predictable ways, as do our biological constructs.
Any deviation is seen as a behaviour that needs to be modified
so as to make us socially acceptable.
We often end up merely shifting from
one socially unacceptable addiction to one that is socially
au courant.
