Illusory or flawed knowledge is based on non-fact or the non-real.
Perverse, illusory or mistaken knowledge is induced by error or misapprehension, or by misinterpreting one thing for another. It is based on the misrepresentation of reality.
Incorrect understanding and mistaken conceptions yield wrong feelings and contaminates the consciousness. This blocks the sadhaka in his efforts to go through the seer, and may give rise to a dual or split personality.
