    $\begingroup$ Nothing. It was a turn of phrase in his paper Über irreversible Strahlungsvorgänge (1899) that introduced his proposed 'natural units', now called Planck units:"It is interesting to note that with the help of the [above constants] it is possible to introduce units…which… remain meaningful for all times and also for extraterrestrial and non-human cultures, and therefore can be understood as ’natural units’… they must, when measured by other intelligences with different methods, always yield the same." $\endgroup$
