Extraordinary in that he was so well equipped to sidestep many of the roadblocks that impede the elderly such as physical dependency and the behavioral dependencies imposed by society.

"As the only man to have ever lived for 116 years - and the oldest man whose age has been fully authenticated - he has a truly special place in world history."

That is until the next 'fully authenticated' person surpasses his age...

I don't believe that he is the oldest human being ever lived!

He was 6 when the boys flew at Kitty Hawk.  15 when the Titanic sank and 72 when man landed on the moon.  In one lifetime he saw the knowledge of humanity increase many, many fold.  What a blessed time to live.

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

Is there anyone from the 1800s left alive? If change ocures as rapidly as it did imagine a 100 years from now. I would love to live in a time where we take complete concious control of our biology. Life spans as long as you want. Time to learn and Osborb incredible amounts of knowledge.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Absolutely no reason to pedantically step on people.

'whose age has been fully authenticated' is the term they used. So I'm not sure how you'll verify how long ol' Hetepheres II lived.
