一 makes sense to me, because it means "one". Collins Dictionary defines '一致' as 'unanimous', which itself originates ["from Latin unanimus "of one mind, in union," from Latin unus "one" (from PIE root *oi-no- "one, unique") + animus "mind, spirit" (see animus)](https://www.etymonline.com/search?q=unanimous)

But why 致? 致, and its 本義, does not appear to mean 'mind'...please see CUHK below.

Synopsis : 甲骨文表示人把東西送到面前,本義是致送、送到。

    basically, you misused the tools, the cuhk site is for single character only. “一致” is a word composed by 2 characters, try the 國語辭典, which explained as “趨向合一,沒有不同。” dict.revised.moe.edu.tw/… for comparison, your method is like, comprehend the word “hotdog”, but fixate on the word “dog”. i would suggest you make some adjustments, otherwise, your learning experience would be, . . . . painful 😿 Sep 28, 2022 at 8:30

"致" has the meaning of "deliver(傳達)" and "present(表示); "一" has the meaning of "相同". The words combined means "相同的傳達/表示" - "unanimous".
