The alternatives provided by the author to the Planck system of the absolute unit, and the challenges and responses related to them were discussed. The alternatives include classical units based on G, c, and e; atomic units based on e and m e; strong units based on c and m p; and many others. The value of natural quantities expressed in their natural units should ordinarily be of order unity, according to the central dogma of dimensional analysis. The number of units that is introduced should be less than zero while taking absolute quantities that appear in the known physical laws.
