' 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.
