Pi says you experience swings in opposite emotions when you are a castaway,

When it is light, the openness of the sea is blinding and frightening. When it is dark, the darkness is claustrophobic. When it is day, you are hot and wish to be cool and dream of ice cream....when it is night, you are cold and wish to be warm and dream of hot curries.
