“Ego with the name is the false self, within the false experience (waking). The universe exists as reality on the base of false self. Man including the universe are reality within the waking experience, but the waking experience itself is unreal.
The dream becomes unreal when waking takes place. Similarly the waking experience which contains you and the universe becomes unreal; when one becomes aware of the fact that, the self is neither the dream entity nor the waking entity but the self is the formless substance and witness of the mind or universe, which appears as waking or dream and disappears as deep sleep. The formless substance and witness of the mind or universe is consciousness. Thus the subject (soul or consciousness)and object (mind or universe) are one in essence.
Thus on the stand point of the true self, which is formless consciousness noting exist other than itself. All diversity (you +universe) is mere mirage created out of consciousness.
When one realizes the true self is formless consciousness then:-
Where is the body, where is mind, where is the world; the void; or despair in the true self, which the taintless soul or consciousness. They are or have becomes consciousness.
One thinks there is mind when he has thoughts, but when thoughts are not considered different from the consciousness, which is the true self, then where is the division into, waking, dream and deep sleep etc
