Throughout the story, Poe conveys the importance that context and perspective has on the decisions and actions that people make. By better understanding what drives other people, and by better understanding of others’ past and current circumstances, perhaps society can make better decisions as a whole—ones that benefit the majority instead of just one individual or

Instead of realizing the extremity of his situation, Pi uses his mind and creates a story to mask the madness of what is really happening. He uses this story to hide true feelings, he also tries to get closer with the higher powers he believes in, hoping they will lead him to land safely.
