EQUIVALENCE OF HUMAN BEINGS
Equivalence means a state or a situation where two or more of “something” are essentially equal and interchangeable but are not exact duplicates — where there is an opportunity for interchangeability.
For example, in mathematics, 1+3 = 2+2. However, simply by looking at the numbers, one is able to realize that “1+3” is not really an exact duplicate of “2+2.” It is equivalent. It is interchangeable but it is not the same.
In the domain of human beings, while two human beings can do the same job and there is interchangeability in function, the result is not the same. So, in RSC Business Group, we say that two people can be equivalent and jobs can be done by another. However, no human being is ever “replaceable.” They are not the same person.
So, there are no two individual human beings who are exact, equal duplicates of each other, ever. However, they could achieve equivalence if those individuals seek out equivalence.
You could have two people be equivalent to one human being in function, but that does not mean that any human being is “replaceable” in life.
We can live from equivalence when we:
Distinguish and acknowledge our own and others’ strengths and weaknesses
Exist and live from the awareness that we are neither better, nor worse, than any other human being
Go beyond the duality of positions and embrace the context of wholeness
Acknowledge that every human being has the potential to achieve their own brand of greatness
Continuously train ourselves and seek knowledge and partnership
Seek to provide an environment of equivalence for others where they too can shine in their own unique way
