What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

You mentioned Antonio Damasio's Self Comes to Mind. The whole book is a good read on the topic.

Especially look at:

Part III – Being Conscious

Here is a .pdf for the discussion.

Thanks for the article, AB.

Just out of curiosity, is Cyberia located in Cyber Space? :anjali:
