Rather than a great evolutionary achievement, perhaps our self-awareness is a check-system that turns on the moment there is a variance between our true nature and what we are doing or thinking. Animals do not need this 'gift', because they remain true to their nature.
Whenever I am completely in balance with my nature (writing certain material, say), at that moment I have no comprehension of if I am this or that, happy or satisfied. For that time being, I JUST AM–in total unison with my truest nature and not “aware” of anything.

This is my truth. Only you can determine if there is any value in it for you.
C.G. Walters primarily writes fiction that focuses on the multidimensionality of our loves and our lives. His current novel, Sacred Vow is a metaphysical novel about a man who responds to the mysterious call of [his soulmate], opening the way to redefinition of both himself and his understanding of the world around him…Highly recommended. —Midwest Book Review.
