    any more than the fact that

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the second part of the following sentence:

    But we now realize that the realm of the paranormal and the
    mystical are not really different realities, any more than the fact that
    a horse is color-blind means that red and green are categories of an
    alien world.

    Does the second part imply as follows:

    ... in the same way as the fact that a horse is color-blind doesn't mean that red and green are categories of an alien world?

    And are there another ways of rephrasing the second part of the sentence?

    ..."just as the fact that a horse is colour-blind does not mean that red and green are indications of an alien world.
