We know that any system is functional if it does X by receiving Y, where X is a set of actions (output) and Y is a set of stimulus (input). The question is what is the use of self if the system, human for example, can function without it?
In this case Self is the system.

Again, self doesn't really exist in the conventional sense of the word. But it is the result of conceptual ability to exceed the bounds of the "Now"
Since "Now" has no time (nor space) bounds - "Self" may be its essence (or Point of View)

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

In the Orient the manifestations of consciousness are often classified as Reality and Maya. Maya is generally translated as illusion, but delusion might be more appropriate, as Maya connotes a world of make-belief, that enjoys great popularity – contrary to Reality which is considered to be omnipres...

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

Self is the vessel of All and thus hidden in it.
It is without knowledge of its beginnings, nor does it envision its ends.

constellations of the manifestations of Consciousness

The constellations of the manifestations of Consciousness are complementary, their reciprocal changes – i.e. interactivity – maintain the continuum of existence. When a constellation dissolves, its components become part of another constellation. The formation- & dissolution phases of the constellat...
