the number of decimal places .9999...
at which
a gap of 1.0 is bridged
depends, yes, on unit of measure,
also, separately, on the type of force

so the number of "9s" in .99999... = 1.0
in a collision between rocks
will be different
from the number of "9s" = 1.0
in a collision between photons

because of different topologies
owning to different types of force
