In chapter 90, Pi has a hallucinatory conversation between a carnivorous sailor who tries to strangle him, and himself, a peace-loving vegetarian.

Although the two are very different, Pi's conversation with the sailor is important to his survival. He needs someone to talk to, and he's extremely hungry..... both of these things have taken over his thoughts.
