that doesn't look anything like an SI unit.  We need to be able to
measure a planck-scale-quale, count up a mole of qualia and define
that a quante. It will just contribute to the confusion if arbitrarily
"many" quante magically become quantia:  We should stick with the SI
convention and refer to megaquante (Mq) 'fading' down to kiloquante
(Kq) then all the way down the microquante (µq) or the
barely-perceptible picoquante (pq)  [which everyone would
intrinsically  'mind' because of the old adage]

here's some familiar numbers for you:
5.39121e-44 s
2.17645e-8 kg
1.616252e-35 m

"planck-scale-quale" hehe
