Not on how it evolved after it switched on, no. I am saying that a self needed to exist in some sense initially for language and tool-making to be possible. The self does not evolve. The self is what makes observes evolution. Knowledge evolves. Consciousness expands (perhaps). The self simply is. It is outside the space in which these things you speak of evolve.
