In response to this, I quote the opening line to Richard Dawkins' newest
book, "Unweaving the Rainbow":

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones."

He goes on to describe just how remotely unlikely it is for us to have
been born, and for us to still be alive (considering that "time" is
"happening" right now, and not ten million years from now).
