True self (non-separate self, or the Absolute) is closely related to subconscious in the realm of the ultimate truth (implicate order, the noumenal), or in the ultimate dimension.
I feel the relation between intellect or ego and true self is equal to the relation between Mara and Buddha. They are two sides of the same coin. They are not two but are not one.
