Humans create according to their self-beliefs; thus, technological creations are self-realized. There is a discrepancy in understanding this relationship in the current research. The concept of the self has facilitated many exciting ideas that make it more complicated to understand. Many established psychological theories help a patient cope with the ailment rather than alleviate it. The article creates a brigade between cognitive psychology of the self and information technology. It shows a path to simplify the understanding of the self through the perspective of psychology, technology, and linguistics. The theory of cognitive transcendence explains that people do not suffer events; they suffer what they think about the events, and through the expansion of understanding, a person can cognitively transcend. Also, a novel perspective on the genesis of the self and a formula to calculate self-esteem is conceptualized. The final derivative is to create a pathway for the mental freedom of the self and how technology can be used to further understand the self and vice versa.
