Interesting piece. I find the behaviour of the brain endlessly fascinating.

My take is that the self is not an illusion. Really, it's the one sure thing we know we have.

I'd say instead that the common notion of self is an illusion. Think of it as being bound up in the brain and body and thoughts and perceptions and you are selling your self short.
