• We have been discussing about globalization for decades, but on the subject of measuring lengths, liquids, solids, weights, power, etc. we are still very far from worldwide unification.

    My proposal is to add a piece to the worldwide unification of the measurements stated above through the International System of Units(SI).

    The missing piece of which I want to illustrate the practicality is the measurement of the average solar day time in:

    10 hours, every hour 100 minutes and every minute 100 seconds.

    The submultiples of the second are already in base ten (tenths, hundredths, thousandths etc. of a second).

    Since all the Units of Measurement used by man are conventional, why not use a conventional time measurement with a practical and intuitive numbering (which we are already used to for other measures and numbers) such as the base 10 (ten)?

    Certainly after an initial period of discomfort for the adjustment to the new time base 10 measurement of an average solar day, both we as well as our posterity will benefit from such simplicity and practicality. There is still much work to be done for this proposal to be applied and spread all over the world, but we could start with the presentation of this idea to the scientists, physicists and mathematicians who are part of the

    Conférence générale des poids et mesures (CGPM)

    who could start talking about it in the various International meetings and present this idea also to the Governments members of the G7, G8, G20 etc. to obtain the approval and application of this idea.

The "average solar day" will consist of 100 000 decimal seconds instead of the actual 86 400.
