At the level of thought, the architecture of the subjective and objective relationship of perception is clearly defined—the perceiver being the subject, what is perceived being the object. This subject-object relationship implies the existence of a perceiver that has a separate identity.

In a human being, the ego’s reflexive separation as a distinct identity takes root in the interaction of the intellect, the list-making capacity of the mind, with the instrumentation of the senses; data flows through the senses into the mind and establishes the relationship of the subject to the perceived object, which appears to exist, yet is really non-existent. So-called reality arises from this complex matrix of ego, intellect, and senses.
