What do you call a block of consecutive paragraphs?

In writing, there are different units of measure. For example, the letter, the word, the sentence, and the paragraph.
There are also sometimes blocks of paragraphs. In each block, there is a single line break between each (indented) paragraph. Between blocks there are multiple linebreaks so that there is some whitespace between the blocks.
This seems to be one of the larger units of measure before a chapter. Does anyone know what the official name for a block of paragraphs is (if it even exists)?
