1.Well,in the fist paragraph simply elaborates what is human being,then tells the readers a particular causal history and the way people persist in are the conditions of existed people.Then,the writer defines what is personal identity and says that the causal chain would terminate a person.That means causally relevant spatial-temporal continuity is the decisive factor of personal identity.After that,the second paragraph presents a contrary point of view,that is,god can preserve and re-form a person, which leads the real issue of the article,the possibility of immortality.

(3)The author's question to Peter Van Inwagen is if the material kernel or core part of brain or central nervous system is physical, how can it be preserved through death and its accompanying decay or cremation?
(4)Inwagen responds that it is possible that we only seem to die.At the last moment before death God snatches away and preserves our core matter, substituting something that looks like it.
