It's thought that there is a 'you' that is thinking thoughts. In reality, thinking is just happening. Included in this thinking process is the idea of a 'you'. This is no different than any other thought that is happening, except that this thought conveys the idea that all other thoughts and experiences belong to and pertain to itself, that it is the one doing it all. Thus this 'you' collects a scrap book of thoughts and experiences which validates and strengthens the belief in this idea of a separate 'you' to whom all these belong.
