Spontaneous Origin of self qualia and consciousness from mirrors

From the mirror image a 'self' arose due to connection between Amygdala and Frontal cortex.
At the same time language writing reading and mathematics arose within the conscious world because emotion and feeling could for the first time be attributed to these logical constructs. Moreover the mirror also produced the necessary feedback for spoken language .These produced a socially constructed consciousness capable of feeding self consciousness.
These were used in constructing the 'qualia' which inhabit and construct our externally perceived conciousness.........
I've been giving the above ideas some thought - and have come to realise that hominids first discovered mirrors in the form of pyrites - (fools gold) some 50000 years ago - giving rise to spoken language and the origin of the human species.
What puzzled me was why they never developed this (consciousness) into a written language earlier.
The answer is simple - they did not know that their mirror image as seen in pyrites (or a similar portable reflecting surface) gave rise to their new and completely mysterious property of consciousness.
They might have been fascinated by the shiny surface etc. but they did not realise its effect of creating their mind.
The mirror people took no notice of their 'mirrors.' and their strive for survival led to them being overlooked.
It took another 45000 years for the pharoahs to discover the properties that mirrors instantiated in the human brain.
Again this only happened by accident.
The pharoahs valued gold because of its association with the sun.
However they could see their reflection clearly in gold artefacts and became unwittingly mesmerised by their own reflection.
They started to realise the value of the ability of metals to reflect their own image and create introspective consciousness.
This freed them from the 'bicameral minds' of their subjects and freed mankind from its evolutionary past.
Richard Dawkins would describe them as a part of the Extended phenotype. I suggest they are the crucial part.
