the problem with statements like these are 'sets'. You're looking at things like mathematics.

1+1 = 2

and 3-1 = 2

so 1+1 = 3-1

and thats correct

but some things arent like that because they categorize into one another:

a square is ALWAYS a rectangle, but is a rectangle ALWAYS a square?

the square is categorized INSIDE the rectangle, not on an equal level.

Note how square also categorizes under kite, or quadrilateral, etc

some things can be categorized by two different things


like Hard Work... it falls under 'Good For You' but it also falls under 'Stealing Refrigerators'. Just because 'Good For You' and 'Stealing Refrigerators' share something does not mean they are equal
