I agree. The Buddha often emphasised how rare the appearance of a Sammasambuddha was.
One of the greatest blindnesses humans have, is to the concept of beginningless Samsara ... the immense periods of time. Apart from the pernicious idea that all rebirths (or even any) are as humans.
The Buddha spoke of aeons without a Sammasambudda appearing in the world.
He spoke of how precious and difficult it is to even gain a human rebirth.
When describing an aeon, it is taken to be the time from the first formation of the ingredients to create new planets, through their formation, population with life, and eventual slow disintegration, one can see how very precious this human life is, how wonderful to live when the Teachings are extant.
Don't waste the merit which gained such a birth.
