If the self is an illusion...

If the self is an illusion (as some Buddhists and some pyschologists and some scientists say), then...er...who or what ...er... is "illuded"?
 
The definition of illusion is "a thing that is or is likely to be wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses." So something/one percieves or interprets.

I've no doubt  "selves" change and die, but at the moment, now, who or what is having the illusion that the self exists?

(And for all those who say the self is an illusion I'd ask them to go and do some painful dental work without an anasthetic, and find out who or what feels the pain.)

But my main question remains who or what is illuded?
