Not even the same thing.

DiamondLube has a lot to prove, but he is right on one thing, the level of understanding sometimes displayed on this forum is appalling.

On a side note, nano diamonds are not the only material to display lubricant qualities at the nano scale. I have used Nano titanium powders imbedded on 1020 steel gear sets in prototype testing (as a test of fit and function ) and have found they exhibit negligible wear after 100 hour test runs. The gear sets were not hardened so this is very surprising. I cannot say they reduced friction as that was not measured and a heavy silicon oil was used as the carrier lubricant.
