To me I think of this paradox applying to two different humans as if the separate people were math equations.
For instance, you are the equation 6+2. While I am 4+4. These two equations equal the same amount, 8. So even though they are different they are also the same. Even though they are different, they are equal.
Just like these two math equations, we humans are all made up of different qualities and characteristics. One person may have more ability to sing and less ability to cook, while another is the opposite. It is our differences that make us equal. It is our equality that makes us similar.
