Now, what is it that holds all of these disparate elements together to form a single individual?

Use philosophical reasoning to defend your position as a coherent and practical view of our lives, showing how it compares with alternative notions. (Customized: Wisdom)
Finally, explain how your position on personal identity fits with a more general account of human nature. Make sure that what you say about this issue is consistent with your resolution of the mind-body problem and your beliefs about the possibility of life after death.
