In the ancient architectural structures, the civilization incorporated their own respective religious beliefs, political views and the socioeconomic factor in the construction. Moreover, these civilizations may have similarities and differences. To begin with, the Ziggurat of Ur and the Great pyramids of Giza are completely from different civilization, however they have similarities in some way. The ziggurat of Ur was built by the Sumerians.They built it with solid mud brick and bitumen. A ziggurat has four sides that are oriented to the cardinal points of the compass.
The great awakening and the enlightenment are similar in many ways but different in others. One way they are both similar is that they both defy traditional authority. Another way is that it taught them to seek truths for themselves. This shaped their beliefs. However they still had many differences.
Both artifacts from the Cupisnique and Moche are in the form of a stirrup spout vessel, which was a very common vessel shape among Pre-Columbian cultures of South America. The main form of the two artifacts are also very similar given that both only portray the facials structure of the human body. And aside from being made out of the same medium of ceramic, the two artifacts are also known for having some ceremonial function. The Cupisnique portrays a spiritual transformation, while the Moche created pieces meant primarily for the
Savana and Hosein, although they had differences in their travels, are certainly two different people, but they did share many differences and similarities in their travels and origin. Savana may come from a completely different background than Hosein, but they both had a common goal; to get out of the unsafe country which was their dwelling place. In conclusion, any refugee, of every age, race, or background may have two similar stories, but countless different

“Medieval Life was dictated by wealth, power and status and the feudal system. The Feudal System was sustained by the rights and privileges given to the Upper Classes and in most cases enacted by laws. The high ranking nobles lived in castles with their knights, ladies and retinues. Others enjoyed their life on their manors. The peasants, including serfs, freeman and villeins spent their life on a manor or surrounding village life” ( Medieval Life ).
In spite of the similarities, there are a great deal of disparities between the two when studied carefully. The founders or teachers of both the religions belonged to the kshatriya caste and opposed and undermined the orthodoxy of brahmanical religion. As opposed to the brahmanical religion, both of them were non expensive religions as they didn't have any complex and elaborate rituals and ceremonies. While Jainism hinged on soul theory and self mortification, Buddhists didn't see eye to eye with them on their rigorous asceticism and declared a Middle Way. Both of them upheld the principle of amsira-nonviolence to living beings but Jains took it to the point of extreme insanity whereas in buddhism it stayed within reasonable limits.
Nonconformism as defined in the Mirriam Webster dictionary is the “ refusal to conform to an established or conventional creed, rule or practice.” In religious terms nonconformity is defined as the ‘unorthodoxy as a consequence of not conforming to expected standards or values’ and ‘Non-conformists’ are considered as those who are rebels or against societal norms. In a broad term, nonconformity is a category of people who are marginalized based on their personality. From ancient times people lived in groups and this is the root cause for the idea of conformism: living uniformal lives in unity; and the others against society (the non-conformists) wandered alone, this resulted in a conformist civilization. The conformists branded nonconformists as abnormal humans and separated themselves, for they feared of being punished by their gods. In a conforming society, people ignore their outlook on life and remain objective, they feel anxious about the criticisms they would receive if they reveal their masked identity.
This is interesting since they can come off as so different but also the same. Even though their civilizations are from different parts of the world and also different time periods. Some similarities would be that both cultures believe in polytheism with deities. Another connections that they had would be that they had similar increasing in the arts and technology. Some differences would be that the Vedic civilization believed in karma, reincarnation the caste system.
