'What is a human being? Objectively, nothing of consequence ... I don't understand it. Nobody does, but it makes me smile.'
'Our existence is a ridiculous affront to common sense ... our civilisation is the combination of seven billion individual affronts. This is what my smiling seems to say ... Our existence is necessarily temporary ... and this makes us all the more precious.' (both Brian Cox, Human Universe)
He is referring to Homo sapiens, but I think it also goes with ageing, gracefully in his case (He is only 50).
