Are we really all the same?

We are all unique.
Which by definition means, we are all different.
Which, in turn, should mean we're all the same.
But we're not, because we're all unique.

Thoughts?

    "We are really all the same" by most DNA composition.
    "We are all unique" by human ultra-high accuracy.
    • Apr 22 2013: It is a fascinating thing, W. Ying, if our DNA is pretty much identical, what makes one person a poet and another an accountant?

      I've never heard the term "human ultra-high accuracy" - could you tell me more about it?

        Thanks´╝ü

        On "human's ultra-high accuracy" :
        E.g.:
        (1) Human can differentiate any one from 7 billion people in the world.
        (2) It makes "one person a poet and another an accountant" .

        Wrong?
