Growing Asa H's concept of its self

In my blog of  4 March 2015 I identified a fragment of Asa's hierarchical case vector memory which constitutes an initial concept of self. I am watching this concept grow as Asa continues to interact with its environment.   Asa has added (or modified) the vectors (concepts):

push=(move to, touch, feel contact force)
kick=(ball near, push, ball far)
self=(health, grasp, kick)

What concepts are learned clearly depends upon the bot's detailed anatomy, sensors, and actuators. In a different world quite different concepts evolve.
