All that is seen, felt or experienced is temporary and depends on the mind (attention consciously directed or otherwise). So illuminator of all observed phenomenon is mind but what is the illuminator of mind. The states of mind also change so there must be something unchanging that illumines the mind which is the implied meaning (lakshyarth) of I. The unchanging substratum is itself devoid of all phenomena.

Liberation, Nirvana, Brahman or Atman is just that which is devoid of all phenomena including the Ego.
