I have a brother, who's almost like me, but not quite.

We have distant relatives too, but they live far away.

I live in equilibrium, just like you, but completely differently.

Who am I?

Hint:

I am quite lonely. Rarely anyone visits.

My first thought was

the north and south poles

I have a brother, who's almost like me, but not quite: North Pole and South Pole

We have distant relatives too, but they live far away: Other planets have north and south poles, but they are very far away

I live in equilibrium, just like you, but completely differently: The poles are in balance, but one is on land, the other in the sea.

They seem to meet the requirements of all 3 sentences.

I would say you are the

boy/man from the twins paradox.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, if I'm the twin that is traveling through space, then all my relatives are on earth, quite far away. About the equilibrium, I thought it could be related to a different amount of gravity in the spaceship. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 4, 2019 at 15:49
