163 reflections on a new vision of consciousness, On My Mind by Steve Perrin is based on 30 years of personal introspection. Perrin develops a model of his conscious and unconscious mind emphasizing... More > the role of the self in moderating between perception and action. The mind, he says, answers three questions: 1) What's happening?, 2) What does it mean to me?, and 3) What should I do? He develops the idea that consciousness consists of looping engagements between perception, action, and the world on the far side of our senses, forming a continuous loop moderated by consciousness. Disparities between expectations and resulting perceptions are what arouses consciousness to intercede between perception and action.

On My Mind ends with a chapter putting forth suggestions toward a theory of mind.< Less

But which is more likely, that we are privileged to look on such a world, or that we experience an insider's view of a subjective version of that world as tailored uniquely for each of us by our personal consciousness? After facing into that question for thirty years, I have to say I know much more about my subjective version of the world than any "objective," conceptual version I piece together from scraps I pick up almost at random, and mercilessly edit to suit my personal convenience and liking. Quite simply, I do not see the landscape in front of me so much as the inner landscape rendered from my personal point of view. That is what this book is about, the world as I make it happen inside my conscious mind.< Less
