Due to the omnipresence of opposition in the real world, regardless in what intensity and form we may encounter its diverse presence, the nature of entities and their opposite entitiesmight be understood in differentways. A look at a whole set of words describing oppositeness is an indicator of this diversity: antipodal, antithetical, contradictory, contrary, diametrical, polar, antipodean, adverse, disparate, negative, hostile, antagonistic, unalike, antipathetic, counter, converse, inverse, reverse, dissimilar, divergent. All these words describe some notion of opposition and can be employed in different contexts to portray different relationships.
