No error, i'm still somewhat of a humanist, in a disenchanted way. Man is just another species, in the end, and there are too many of us.

Your disenchantment is well founded, but for other reasons.
Humans are endlessly interesting and amazing creatures, but they should never be worshipped.

@Leadfoot,
Humankind is different from actual humans; it's a man-made concept, a sort of ideal.

Good start. That's how I did.

The 'ideal' part is where it all goes wrong. The clock was given enough sense to recognize that.

@Leadfoot,
Ideals are important. They serve as compass in the mess of trade-offs and the sea of life currents.

@Olivier5,
Of course, I agree completely.
It’s just that when I chose humans as my ideals,
well, it didn’t end well.
