equality - see the difference?
we only perceive differences if we have a comparison.
We perceive differences when we compare, compare to before and after, to left and right, to above and beyond.
If we do not perceive differences anymore, ultimately only the essence of what we are looking at remains and the grounds for assessment, judgement and appraising considerations are withdrawn.
If we leave aside all comparisons of appearances, which are in the eye of the beholder anyways, only the person in all its beauty remains. Then we all are just humans. If we no longer perceive human-plant-animals as a difference, only the living being remains.
If we do not compare only the essence of what we are looking at remains - see the difference? - equality
