Universal? or Multiple Units of Measure?

  1. Mar 1, 2015 #1
    Firstly, I'd be happy to be corrected if I'm not using the right wording or just plain incorrect with my approach.

    Is it practical to suggest that units of one measurement system could possibly represent the measurement of things not only at the macro level, but represent particles with and without mass? Or is it best to create multiple units of measure to prevent inaccuracies/misrepresentation?

    In short, what would be better, a universal unit of measure or a bunch of different units of measure?
