    (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.
