There are worse things than death. Like compromising your principles.
In the situation above, for those whose concerns are purely ethical, I can see how eating meat in a survival situation might not be tangent to their
principles, and certainly wouldnt be for those who dont eat meat for health reasons.
But for any vegetarian who chooses not to eat meat for spiritual reasons, it truly would be the capstone test for them to prove they can and will walk
the walk, and that their eternal spirit is truly what is of importance to them, not their passing physical form.
I imagine maybe only 1:100 would pass that test only they could have set for themselves.
Most people falter in the face of trivial temptation, let alone true temptation, and betray their supposed values and principles on a daily basis.
Facing death, especially slowly, to stand for what you believe is right, no matter what that is, is the ultimate test that this life can provide to
you. It asks that you sacrifice everything material that you have, including your very body and all its physical desires, to adhere to that virtue you
believe to be greater and more worthy of adherence to than even life itself.
If you can pass that test, youve won the game of life, and earned your place in heaven.
