You know, when fantasy histories start with the first living beings "awakening", you have to imagine what that actually means. Normally I think it's just "one day they were not self aware, the next day they are", which does raise a question of how one becomes self aware in the real world.

@isoraqathedh I have an extremely early memory, when I was maybe two years old (only thing I know for sure is I could walk). I suddenly questioned for how long I had existed. It is hard to describe but it felt like before that point I was a kid going through everyday life, and I had the memories of that kid, but it didn't feel real until then. So I like to think of that moment as the time I became self aware. Of course it was so long ago I don't know trustworthy that memory is.
