Counterpart Relation IV 52/53

Multiple counterparts: e.g. one physical and one personal counterpart of me.

Counterpart relation: Parts of counterparts do not have to be counterparts of parts, nor vice versa - temporal segments of people: more by intrinsic similarity - people as a whole: counterparts rather by origin and role.
