He: H? A? M? Did he say he was wrong and right about the same thing?
"He said he was right and he was not right" = He hsaid he was right, but he was wrong? He said he was both right and not right?

Does "right," the first time, mean "correct"? Does it refer to the direction?
Same questions for the second instance of "right"?

Same questions for the second instance of "right"? YES, i.e. in the second instance of 'right', he was wrong. And re 'direction', hmmm, OTRL.

I should probably clarify, that 'HE' in the first statement is HAF#1, and 'HE' in the second statement is HAF#2,

H/A/F means a woman (human adult female)... so are both he's actually female? Or do you mean H/A/M (human adult male)?

So are all he's in the first statement Person 1? And are all he's in the second statement Person 2?
