Two elements in a semigroup are J-related if they generate the same
two sided ideal. There are two elements in your example that generate
the two sided ideal of order 8 and the other 6 elements generate the
same two sided ideal of order 6. The elements in the equivalent
classes in the J-relations are not ideals.
