If it isn’t strictly equivalent, it’s sifferent. I made a new word up today and even two symbols describing it. Most things that are the same, are also a little bit different and even the most different things (or people!) have _something_ in common (or the same). I even made it on a website – http://sifferent.com – along with a handy chart for resolving human conflict by listing sames and differences by the people of Human Systems Dynamics. Will it take off? Who knows. But I think it’s a missing word for something most of us know is true from day-to-day life.
