cohesion (noun) sticking together; keeping together.

If a number of things stick together, they have cohesion. Social cohesion is the different classes of society sticking together, or remaining close together. When there is cohesion among a group of people, they are connected with one another in some way, have unity in some sense and are together. If there is cohesion among a set of ideas, they are related to one another and form a single unit. In writing, or in speech, cohesion is seen in the close relationship among ideas and logical sequence of sentences, leading to unity or oneness in thought and expression.
