We can only theorize at whatever level we understand or perceive creation and I hope my answer will give reality true justice.
From my current perception, I understand that creation, which is comprised of infinite universe has no beginning and no end. It just is.
Creation is a paradox, as it is always beginning and it always ending. It is similar to the ancient Greek symbol of the Ouroboros: the snake eating its tail, which means infinity or wholeness. So there is no root cause for the soul and conscience or consciousness (higher self) to be formed as they have always existed. One is not more pure than the other.
I perceive that creation has always had the desire or push to expand and to know itself. We are ourselves are a microcosm of the whole. Within each of us is the desire to grow and to understand who we are…. What is our origin? Your question is a good example of this. Creation is a spectrum of light. There will always be consciousness which is lighter than our own and there will always be consciousness which is darker than our own.
