' The false illusion '...
There is no entity called intellect or ego or personal "I" or individual mind apart or separate from thoughts themselves, existing alone.
People give it such a supposed existence by their habitual attitude, lifelong belief.
This shows the power of auto-suggestion and memory to create a purely fictional being.
The sustenance, reality, life it has is false, illusory.
Mind as such is devoid of all thoughts.
