The Ego is defined as the Interpretive Context of the physical body. This context could or has been called the
Thinking-I or the Intellective, but it is the first and original personality created from the beginning first year.
A distinction is made between pure sensory experience and Interpretation of such exploit. Pure sensory experience is said to be the operation of the Sentient Self, generally called the unconscious as the registration of every sensory stimulation through the physical mechanisms of the sensory system. The Sentient Self is said to be fairly similar for everyone aside from sexual differences, and minor perceptual differences as eyesight, hearing or taste, touch and smell.
Everyone is said to experience reality in a fairly similar manner, where the perception is similar and alike. Everyone perceives feelings such as heat of the sun, the sound of thunder, or the sight of clouds in a fairly similar way. However Interpretation may result from a myriad of different contexts, depending on the
Associations attached by the individual, relative to varied personal experience, as the interpretation of snow would be different for arctic and desert dwellers. One person freaks when a bee comes 'round and another not bothered at all. Same sensory experience of bee, but the associative reaction is different. Thus while the sensory experience is the same or similar, there are a wide range of interpretations.
The Ego is called the associator and thinker. There are said to be two types of Associational processes as automatic and volitional. Association is called an automatic function of the memory, which continuously associates one sensory impression in the memory to any number of others.
