    Pi is resourceful, as are those with faith, according to The Life of Pi. Pi employs his imagination to solve his problems, not the least of which is loneliness, as the shipwreck’s soul survivor. “Which story do you like better?” Pi asks the writer. Spall replies that the one with the tiger is the better story. The conclusion seems clear enough, when Pi replies, “And so it goes with God.” The meaning of that? Humanity’s God story is the better one because, as with Pi’s tiger story, it is not only much more interesting, it is…well…better. In other words, Pi’s tiger story, according to him, is as useful, and in the same way, as stories about God. Why is Pi’s story ineffective as a real parable (which illustrates a truth)? Because a parable is a composite or depiction of true stories that ring true because they are. Pi’s story subtly blurs the line between myth and truth.
