The Assyrians and the Sumerians had many different achievements that both empires used. The Assyrians achieved many things like iron weapons, the lock and keys, sewage systems, libraries, and lunar-based calendars. The Sumerians were not only advanced in government and religious issues, they developed many other things that are apart of our life today. The Assyrians of today are the descendants of the ancient Assyrian people, one of the earliest civilizations surfaced in the Middle East, and have a history spanning over 6,760 years. With that being said, the Assyrians had many accomplishments throughout the history.
Mesopotamia and egypt had different nature of gods and afterlife. Mesopotamians saw afterlife as a gloomy Netherland controlled by the god of the underworld whose name is Nergal. The Egyptians thought afterlife will be a happy place and just continue life on earth.

I felt as though I had become the very monster that humans ascribed to sasquatches. My justification was that he killed my parents, but in my heart, I knew that seeking revenge didn 't solve the heart of the issue.

For example Oedipus says, “ For whoever he was who killed that man would as soon kill me with that same violent hand.” although he is the killer. Another example of irony is when Oedipus declares no one is allowed to speak to the person responsible for the curse of thebes, he says “ I decree no one shall receive him or speak to him nor make him partner in prayers to the gods or sacrifices.” although he is the one who brought the curse upon them.
