Conference paper

In chemistry and physics there exist universal units that represent constants or constant intervals that can be used to express various qualities of our world in an unchanging manner. Celsius can be used to express our world in terms of temperature, atmospheres measure pressure, newtons measure force, and meters can measure distance and space.
