(Self awareness means Atman and here the self is the primordial energy itself).

 

Atman is said to be the self awareness. Here the word self means the basic essential form of Atman, which is the all pervading inert energy in the form of space called as primordial energy. Hence, awareness of space itself is self awareness. There is no contradiction between self awareness and awareness of space because self means space, which is the primordial energy.

 

Note:

 

Inert energy that is doing the process of awareness can become the object of knowledge. Awareness is process of knowing the knowledge it needs and object to be known. So when the basic inert energy or the space or primordial energy become the object of the process of knowing then that is the self knowledge, self realization or self awareness. Here object of worker is worker. Not work. Work cannot be both object as well as work. Work is the process and worker is the entity. You cannot call work as process as well as entity. It is different from the process. You are walking. Walking is process. Your self is the entity. So, both are different. Thus both must be different. If you say work of work it is meaning less.
