Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Similar But All Different

Similar But All Different
Summary: In a vast and varied world there are so many different lives that no two are the same.

You Are Your Lifestyle

It is a good thing that we are all different. Some of us may look very similar to each other, some may think very similarly, and some are even genetically identical. But no matter how similar we may think we are, or may appear to be, we are all different. In the case of identical twins the only differences are memories, experiences and subsequent mentalities, but even these seemingly minor differences are real and potentially significant. We all have different lives in different places. It goes without saying that someone living in a high rise condominium and working in an office in a city in the industrialised world must have a very different life style from a farm worker who lives in a wooden house in a developing country. 

The two could hardly be more different. But it is also true that two farm workers living in similar wooden houses and working on the same farm still live different lives essentially because they are two different people. Their lives probably look very similar or even the same to a casual observer, but their jobs and the way they do them, their relationships with others and their various interactions with their environments, including their respective families, are almost certainly quite different from each other.


For those who do routine work on a production line and travel on public transport from a generic block of flats where some of their fellow workers also live, it must be easy to lose sight of the fact or idea that we are all different. If such people also like the same foods, enjoy very similar activities during their free time and have 1.5 kids, even though we know that at least there are always some subtle differences, it can be very tempting to say that their lives are the same. But at least there are always some subtle differences.

It Takes All Sorts

Similar But All DifferentSince we are all at least slightly different, we therefore have slightly different preferences. Some prefer to watch sport while others prefer to participate. Some prefer to go for a walk, run or ride while others prefer to relax with some food and drink. Some prefer mountains while others prefer beaches. Some like it hot, such as sunbathers on tropical beaches, but some like the cold, crisp air of a mountain top or a freezing winter. And of course many of us like a wide variety of things at different times. Most people vary their dress or attire according to the time and place, or what they are doing and who they are with. From a practical perspective jeans and Tee shirt are no less practically suitable for an office than for a garden, and a collar and tie is equally impractical just about anywhere. A family man may dress very much more casually and less smartly in his own home or garden than in the company board room. Perhaps it does not make sense from a completely logical point of view, but that is the way of the human world.

It’s All for Show

Our ancient ancestors relied partly on visual stimuli to attract a mate, or perhaps a series of them, in order to pass on his or her genes. Any individual without that desire to mate and pass on genes is generally removed from the gene pool, and the stronger the desire to mate, the more such genes will be passed on. It really is basic instinct to make oneself as attractive to members of the opposite sex as possible. That is why women wear jewellery. Fashions for jewellery vary around the world and sometimes follow each other in a weird merry go round, just as can be said of clothing fashions, although some jewellery is arguably beyond fashion. For example, diamond engagement rings could be described as eternal, and yet art deco engagement rings may be the vogue in Sydney, for example while the traditional little rocks remain most popular elsewhere. 

Getting back to the subject of making logical sense, since the large majority of people cannot tell a tiny diamond from similarly cut glass without a special lens, let alone cubic zirconia, why spend a hundred times the price for a diamond when cubic zirconia is practically the same? Many aspects of many people’s life styles would not make sense to Mr. Spock, but then life in the twenty first century after the immaculate conception does not really stand up to much more logical scrutiny than that conception itself.
