For example, on just about any trait you could measure, identical twins (who share all their genes) are more similar than nonidentical twins (who share only half their genes); their brains, too, are more similar than those of nonidenticals.
By comparing identical twins, who are genetically the same, and nonidentical twins, they were able to separate the influence of genes and environment on intelligence.
When we look at the current European monetary and overall economic problems we have to--at least analytically--differentiate two issues: (1) the impact of a monetary union upon nonidentical countries, but countries that are at a similar level of economic development, and (2) the impact of entry into a monetary union of a country that is at a different level of economic development than the dominant part of the union and is undergoing dynamic structural changes in an effort to catch up with its more developed partners.

In his experiment, rats were trained for 12 trials a day with many same-different visual discrimination tasks (i.e., 8 or 16 stimulus tasks) with an automatic T maze (see Figure 4 in 2000c), in which they were given a same problem with two identical items on six trials and a different problem with two nonidentical items on the other six trials in a random order within each session to criterion, and then they were shifted to novel same-different tasks.

Monk defines his argument thus: 'Architecture itself assembles and reassembles the constellation of possible positions actually assumed by participants in this conflict, who confront die element of the nonidentical within architecture as if that element were the trace of the agency of the Other, that is, as if each threat to an immediately intuited reality confirmed by an object emanated from an opposing presentation of immediacy, rather than from the fact that the object's "identity" only introduces itself "in its otherness to all identification"'.
