Seems to me it's the same body/mind division the Hindus tell us about.
The personality emerges from the process of being aware; however, the personality cannot conceptualize itself as something that is itself a product of the calculations of a mind. It needs to think it's a finite thing that exists. So a division between PERSONALITY and MIND emerges.
Because personality is most similar to things of an absolute nature of personality, we project it into God or gods. We also project it into other personalities, which is the formation of "crowdism."
Because our personality does not control our mind, we project it into physical reality and surmise it's like nature: lawless, chaotic, something we can't CONTROL.
