when nietzsche said ubermensch (overman, superman, super-human), he wasn’t talking about the peak of the mountain that is humanity, he was talking about the clouds floating above the peak. think of the prefix “super-” not as “better” or “greater,” but very literally as above. having self-awareness and perspective.
"What is ape to man? A laughing stock or painful embarrassment. And man shall be that to overman: a laughingstock or painful embarrassment."
-Wikipedia, Friedrich Nietzsche
