Not only do the traits like traveling over a vast setting or noble birth fit Beowulf and his quest, but I think the more important traits are humility and facing supernatural foes. His humility as a hero means he is performing his quests for the good of everyone around him. He does what he needs to so his people can live happy and peaceful lives without the fear of Grendel and his mother. This need to save his people makes him venture to Heorot to defend the hall, adding to the point that the theme of a man in an alien world faces struggles he cannot win. The fact he faces supernatural foes is in itself a part of the theme.

Researchers at Ohio State University “examined what happened to people who, while reading a fictional story, found themselves feeling the emotions, thoughts, beliefs and internal responses of … the characters as if they were their own - a phenomenon the researchers call experience-taking”(Libby, 2012).
After 20 years, Copernicus agreed to share his new discovery with the world by publishing a book called On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres about his discoveries. In document 5, Galileo Galilei wrote a letter to a friend, Kepler, for his support for Copernicus’ theory years after he died. In this letter he explains how Galileo believes that the heliocentric theory is the correct theory and that he was too scared to publish his arguments supporting Copernicus. Galileo was scared because only in the eyes of few people and mocked and made fun of by many. Galileo says that he would feel better coming out with his ideas if the idea was more populrized in a positive way.

In a world and time before cosmic pluralism was a largely excepted concept, the answer for strange behavior, creatures, and fire in the sky was attributed to the religious. Fire balls in the sky or things similar were seen as a show of power or a punishment. The strange creatures and behaviors seen were not seen as outer worldly but from the doing of Satan and his cohort of necromancers and witches. As time pressed on into a modern age where science prevails, these explanations steered more away from religion and more into the realm of science fiction.
Checks and Balances are intertwined throughout the government precisely for disruptions like this. It acts as a regulator between any origins of supremacy to guarantee no one overrides an opposing authoritative group. Due to these factors, Checks and Balances and Separation of Powers deserve a lengthy reign, for it bears morality and emphasizes reason behind the U.S. Constitution. Separation of Powers is imperative to the functionality of society, the government, and the Constitution because it’s teeming with crucial principles and liberates the nation of tyrants. Absence of this system of government makes documents, such as the Bill of Rights, ineffectual without Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances to fortify its claims.
