As nearly as I can understand from what you wrote, you are wanting to know the difference between "these" and "those". Normally, "these" describes items or people that are close to you, in your possession or the first of two groups you are comparing. "Those" describes items or people not near you, not in your possession or the second of two groups you are comparing. Without knowing the context of your question, that's the closest I can get to an answer.

Does what have the same meaning? Your question is not clear.
