And, even earlier, maybe it wasn't *mu, but the *m-n- "soul, self"
word (by its occurrence) a real Ruhlen-world word)

since "I" is Finnish <minä>, Etruscan <mini>(?), and (is this true?)
Lithuanian <man> = "self"?

Now one can really wax lyrical and say we have caught a glimpse of
the genesis of the concept of "self"?
