I made you all a transcript :–) but some things are unclear, submit fixes in a comment

There are few certainties in science, but one fact of which we can be certain is that one day we will die. Our atoms won't disappear. They will return to the Earth. Some will become parts of a living future, but they will cary no imprint, no memories, no knowledge, the pattern once known as you.

In 5 billion years our Sun will cease to shine, our planet will die in a searing heat engulfed by a dying star. The atoms once known as you will be ejected out into space. In billions of years they may become part of new solar systems with their own stories to tell. The great cycle of stellar death and rebirth offers a sorts of limited immortality. Whether that's comforting is up to you.

But ultimately nothing will survive. It will all be gone. In the far future there will come a time when time has no meaning as the universe expands and fades. Our descendants isolated on the island drifting on the ocean of dark will watch as galaxy evaporates away. How does this make you feel?

Yet something remains in the darkness. An idea. Science is the ultimate exercise of reason. And our reason confirms, deep down, what we always known — whenever human or star — life is precious. We — collections of atoms that can think, that discovered this deep truth — we must understand the universe will spend an eternity in darkness after a brief period of light.

Meaning is not eternal and yet meaning exists today because the universe means something to us. We must understand that life is precious. In doing so we will come to recognize the true value of ourselves, our fellow humans and our civilization.

The choice before us is not between immortality and total darkness — the laws of nature had made that choice. But we do get to choose how long we want to survive. How long you want human race to survive? There will come a time when we are forced to choose — do we destroy our planet or protect it. Do we live together of fight amongst ourselves. Do we expand and explore, do we cary our shared hopes and dreams outwards to Mars and moons of Jupiter and Saturn and onwards to limitless stars. Or do we avert our gaze from the universe beyond and allow all memory of our world to be lost too soon.

Do we close our minds and seek refuge in the ignorant dark of the cave? Or do we embrace curiosity and love: of knowledge, of our fellow humans, of our rare world, and of the infinite and wonderful things yet to be known. That time is now.

"There Will Come a Time" lyrics
Orbital - narrated by professor Brian Cox

There are few certainties in science
but one fact of which we can all be certain is that one day we will die.
Our atoms won't disappear, they will return to the Earth.
Some will become parts of the living future
but they will carry no imprint, no memories,
no knowledge of the pattern once known as you.

In five billion years our sun will cease to shine.
Our planet will die in the searing heat,
engulfed by the dying star.
The atoms once known as you will be ejected out into space.
In billions of years, they may become parts of new solar systems
with their own stories to tell.

The great cycle of stellar death and rebirth offers a sort of limited immortality.
Whether that's comforting is up to you
but ultimately, nothing will survive, it will all be gone.

In the far future, there will come a time when time has no meaning
as the universe expands and fades.
Our descendants, isolated on an island adrift in an ocean of dark
will watch as the galaxy evaporates away.

How Does That Make You Feel?

Yet something remains in the darkness; an idea.
Science is the ultimate exercise in reason
and our reason confirms deep down what we've always known.
Whether human or star, life is PRECIOUS and fleeting.

We are collections of atoms that can think,
to discover this deep Truth.
We must understand that the universe will
spend an eternity in darkness after a brief period of light.

Meaning is not eternal and yet
meaning exists today because the universe means something to US!

We Must Understand That Life Is Precious And Fleeting.
In Doing So We Will Come To Recognise The True Value Of Ourselves,
Our Fellow Humans And Our Civilisation.

The choice before us is not between immortality and eternal darkness,
the laws of nature have made that choice
but we do get to choose how long we want to survive.
How long do you want the human race to survive?
There will come a time when we are forced to choose.

Do we destroy our planet or protect it?
Do we live together or fight amongst ourselves?
Do we expand and explore?
Do we carry our shared hopes and dreams outwards
to Mars and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn,
onwards to the limitless stars?
Or do we avert our gaze from the universe
beyond and allow all memory of our world to be lost too soon?

Do we close our minds and seek refuge in the ignorant dark of the cave?
Or do we embrace Curiosity and LOVE,
of knowledge of our fellow humans
and our rare world and of the infinite and wonderful things yet to be known?

That time is NOW

PS — saw them in Berlin yesterday. WOW! I dived into electronic music with Orbital and The Chemical Brothers. They opened their set with this one. wow wow wow!

Thanks first goes to Sergei Sergeve for the original (his doing) transcript. I had to listen several times after finding the first correction. There were several so it was easier to just re-post his transcript with fixes. There may still be a couple I missed.

Cheers

I played this to kids at the weekend. Huge mistake: now my 9 year old daughter is having an existential crisis.

😂 Sorry, it was to funny to read. Orbital to kids is like first love break-up to adults. Hope she is has come down by now. 🙏

I learned about nuclear weapons when I was about 7. I started crying and my mum had to talk to me for a long time about it to get me to calm down.

Wishbone Brewery

Listening to Brian Cox occasionally seems to give me an 'end of days' / 'end of life as we know it' type dream. Do not pass Go, do not collect £$200

Brian Cox sounds a bit like Christopher Eccleston in "You Lot" :D

Melanie MacLennan

Awesome track, better than all the generic pish that is classed as music. At least orbital try something different on each album. Good music to go on a journey with, those in the know will understand what I'm saying. And those that don't, oh well I guess they never will.

Brilliant monologue.
