Perrin to explore consciousness

BAR HARBOR — Author Stephen Perrin will talk about his new book “Minds Inside Out: The Story of Human Engagement” at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, April 20, at 7 p.m. “Minds Inside Out” is about the role the spirit plays in everyday life as people experience the world around them.

Perrin’s talk will focus on the situations he gets into in leading his life and the actions he takes as appropriate responses in these unending loops. His book tells the story of his adventures in trying to steer his life on a meaningful course.

The purpose of consciousness, Perrin said, is to enable people to make appropriate responses to situations they find, believe or imagine themselves to be in. Intelligence guides people in integrating perception, judgment and action in each pressing situation as it engulfs them.

Perrin has written four books about Mount Desert Island, where he lives, and two self-published books about consciousness. He is a founding member of Friends of Taunton Bay and Frenchman Bay Conservancy. Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books.
