EGO: BELIEF SYSTEM CREATOR?

Do our egos create new belief systems or at least modify existing belief systems?

Is not our own egos just a belief? How did the ego come to exist? Where does it exist? Who or what created the ego?

Not exactly.
The imagination creates all the things that we think about that are not yet here and now as well as 99% of are thinking process in general.
The ego is Latin for I meaning identity/ personality which is created as a tool by the imagination but it is a byproduct of the imagination therefore not the same thing

Your ego (and mine, and Fred's) is sitting in a small corner of our imagination. It's a tiny light in the planet's human imagination and one teeny-weeny twinkle of the universe's imagination.

Yup. One great blob of undifferentiated stuff. No need for a brain as there'd be no interaction, no individual thought or experience. It would solve a lot of human problems....except there'd be no human.

Well, I can't think the planet would be worse off for that!
