The lower self remembers everything, past and present, and maintains this information to help the middle self to create its future. It has a only short-term memory and relies on the lower self for long term memory and recall. The Higher Self is beyond time and space. It has no equivalent of memory. It knows all and sees all.
It is often related to the Western concepts of unconsciousness or subconsciousness. However, it is never actually unconscious. The middle self can be illogical.

It is ruled as much by its likes, wants and desires as it is by external events and forces. It wants to be socially correct and craves love. The Higher Self operates under the rules of the Intelligence of the Universe. These rules, as we usually think of God, are unknowable.
It can only think deductively. It uses both inductive and deductive logic. It has free choice and makes decisions about almost everything. The Higher Self is neither logical nor illogical. It is Truth.

It is designed as an achiever to complete goals and tasks as rapidly as possible. It is also designed as an achiever and goal setter. The Higher Self has been described as the "Totally Trustworthy, Totally Benevolent Parental Spirit."
The lower self is essentially a child, it is also a student and a servant. It is programmed to perform and grow, to learn and repeat by habit. It is more likely to be the initiator, teacher, parent or master. The Higher Self cannot act on its own. It must be asked by the middle self through the lower self.
