no.  it isn't.  but it may be that the electrons in each are the same 
electron jumping quickly around the universe, as someone pointed out a few 
posts ago.  and the same for the other parts of each.  but sometimes they 
combine to make carbon atom a and sometimes carbon atom b, distinguished by 
their position and by how they interact with their environment.

not that it makes any actionable difference.
