    (1) According to the Ramanuja school, if two reputable sources appear to contradict then one must try to come up with an interpretation that is acceptable to both views. (2) One must be careful to equate a conceptual model with the absolute truth. A model can be useful but one cannot be certain that it is the truth; only that it has some predictive power. E.g. it is useful to model a circle as a polygon with 360 sides with short edges when drawing on a screen. It is also useful to model it with 3600 sides. The two models are very different but neither is the truth.
