Why can't I know the Self via the mind?

Self Enquiry 1.0.0 2019-10-04 23:08:42 SQ: 74

When mind try to introspect on the Self. It is left with one conclusion - "I dont know". It is the answer?
Because I never find any answers all I can say is Self exist as an only sujbect.

Self enquiry is about discarding your beliefs about what am I. When the apparent things that were assumed as I are discarded, the Self shines as pure knower. It cannot be known as an object or experience. For the mind which deals with objects, sensations, perceptions etc, it is not graspable.
So we say, the knower cannot be known. I am already that knower. There is nothing more to know about it.
