Thus, the indistinguishable differences between objects that are alike in species, characteristics marks and positions become indistinguishable.


As a result of this, there is discernment of two comparable things that are not distinguishable by species, characteristic, or location.


From it (Vivekajam’Jnanam) knowledge of distinction between similars which cannot be distinguished by class, characteristic or postion.
