This question has a simple answer. No one, absolutely no one, nowhere, has
demonstrated how awareness or self-awareness arises in an organism. Nothing
has been done. No one has ever told how awareness arises. Nothing, nothing,

No one has explained why we are aware of a multitude of neurons as a unity.

Theories are another matter. Anyone may put forth a theory. Theories are a
dime a dozen.
