What is the Meaning & Definition of unit

The concept of unity is an abstract concept that is used to designate all that which is of a uniform, attached and such in the world. The idea of unit comes precisely from the one, that is one thing, a single element. Thus, for example unit of matter is present when different parties unite to become something greater or more complex that encompasses them. In scientific terms, the unit represents order, but in social terms the unit can often be understood as a negative if it is considered that the unit represents the annulment of the different or distinct.
When we talk in terms of scientific, biological, chemical, physical, etc., the unit represents the conjunction of elements occurring naturally or artificially in different circumstances. So, for example when several specimens of the same species of animal are joined together in a group (a flock of birds) they become more complex, a unit since all Act and move together. A unit artificially attained by man can be for example when put several ingredients to preparing a plate of food service; each element is different from the rest but altogether becomes all in one unit, something new.
In the case of social phenomena, the idea of unit has two aspects, one positive and the other negative. In the same way that in science, the unit can represent a phenomenon positive when he represents order and working together, for example when all persons of a company or a family Act ranked and securely, forming a unit and each role. The social unit has to do with the idea to unite all despite our differences for a purpose in common, for example, peace.
However, the unit can also be negative when in certain forms of Government, regimes or social and cultural ideas as different or different is understood as something bad or dangerous that should be eliminated. Thus tends to the disappearance of the differences that make us who we are and that we engage in a homogeneity in which none of us stands out for their own traits, characteristics, achievements, etc.
