Survivor

Monday, March 29, 2010

Our ship sank to the bottom of the sea. We found ourselves stranded on a deserted island. There were over 40 of us that survived that horrible incident. Since the group was large. We divided ourselves into 3 groups. Each group chose a different route to survive on the island. The resources on a location can't possibly feed all of us if we stayed together.

The environment on the island is harsh. It's where wild animals roam. Poisonous snakes lurking at corners that we don't expect. Wild monkeys trying to steal from us. We built our own little hut. Just enough to fit the lot of us in. We were lucky to have found a flowing river. One which we could get clean water to drink.

Food on the other hand, weren't much. For the vegetarians at least. All we could get was some bananas and coconuts. That was all that they could eat. The remaining ones realized that there are no cow or chicken or any other source of meat that they could usually get at the hypermarket. We soon realize that food has always been around us. Even surrounding us.

The rivers are full of fish. The seashore were filled with crabs and some never before seen bivalves. Insects are good source of proteins. Snakes, rats, wild boars and some other little mammals may all fill our stomach. But food is running low for the vegetarians. Seeing the very conditions that we were facing, I decided that remaining a vegetarian would only kill me. I have to go against my principles if I want to live. Adapting is crucial in order to live without much problem.

Even so, there were a few that insisted on their diet. They can't bear to turn omnivorous. They even went on their own way to search the deep forest for their own meals. Is it worth it to stand on such principles at such a difficult situation. I wonder if they survived. If it were you, would turn to meat despite you are vegetarian to survive? Would you go against your own stand, principles and beliefs to do what you need to live?

erm...... If you got the meat, will you eat it raw? It's easier to swallow greens than raw meat. As a vegetarian myself, I find this is a very hard answer to give, but I guess I will starve to dead though.

Men has to live with what they have. In a highly civilised society, we have many choices and options on what we do. But when we are limited on choices, especially on a deserted island... I think it is normal for men to revert to their basic instincts to nurse their hunger, before tending to their principals.

To starve would be stupid.

When people starve, they would eat anything around them, even their own kind. I think adapting is very important to survival.

Go and read "Lord of the Flies".

Food,Water and Air are humans' basic needs,I would do anything to have them.

For the rest of my principles,I have a limit on how much i can blur the lines

For me, I will get to eat meat to survive... and let's say the situation is changed to a snowy mountain with starving group of friends.

How do we react then when some of died... Are we to the limit of eating our friend's meat to survive? This question came to me when I thought of the real situation of a football team crashes landed in the Andes mountains...
