What exactly was Sati's error in MN38?

What exactly do you think it was? The way I read it, Satis error was thinking that consciousness is a permanent entity which continues. Your thoughts?

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence.

That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
