eye meditation on eye floaters
is the latest issue of "Holistic Vision", the spiritual
project by the author and consciousness researcher Floco Tausin.
It is devoted to a phenomenon known as idiopathic or harmless
"eye floaters" or "muscae
pictures) among ophthalmologists. We see
them as scattered, mobile, transparent dots and strings in
our visual field. "Holistic Vision" includes ophthalmology
but questions its conclusion on floaters and goes beyond.
For the observation and open eye meditation reveals a connection
between altered states of consciousness and the way floaters
look. Furthermore, a look at different cultures highlights
floaters as an object of art and spirituality. By this "holistic
vision", Floco Tausin pursues the question whether these
spheres and strings are first appearances of a shining structure
of consciousness within which we cover a distance to our spiritual
origin – a path that lights up through open eye meditation.

Floater structures in the visual arts of modern and present-day
article is based on the assumption that prehistoric shamanic
rituals include the perception, interpretation and depiction
of what we today call "eye floaters"
(muscae volitantes). It is suggested that, together
with other shamanic symbols, floaters continue to be experienced
and depicted in later shamanic societies up to the present
day. The present article supports this thesis from
the examples of modern Siberian and contemporary Tukano shamans.
A closer look at their visual arts reveals geometric structures
and characteristics that are typical of eye floaters.

Hints, Experiences, and Pictures
" There are more things in heaven and earth …"
floaters, but a whole bunch of different subjective visual
phenomena, as seen by reader Karen. Floco comments from a
physiological and spiritual perspective.
"I was diagnosed during an exam for eyeglasses as having
floaters about 2 years ago. I am 62 years old. I am not always
aware of them and yet I do have several direct experiences
that I wanted to share with you…"
Dear Karen, your list of such phenomena is a wonderful
example that "there are more things in heaven and earth,
then are dreamt of in your philosophy", as Shakespeare’s
Hamlet tells his friend Horatio after having seen his dead

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
The layers of consciousness
floaters and their meaning were interpreted differently depending
on the time, culture and personality of the observer. We learn
a spiritually meaningful perspective about floaters from Nestor,
the seer, with whom I have studied and whose teachings I recorded
in the book "Mouches volantes – Eye Floaters
as Shining Structure of Consciousness". In this
new category, a particular statement from the book on floaters
shall be presented and explained.
"For you, this cup is always at the same distance from
you. You could sit here for a lifetime and stare at this cup
– it would always appear to be at the same distance
from you. That’s the case because your consciousness
is very stable within a certain layer. This stability is something
enforced on every one of us – through education, impartment
of values, viewpoints and ways of thinking..."

Eye floaters by Tim Stevenson
category "Quarterly Picture" introduces realistic,
artistic and/or spiritual/religious representations from different
cultures and times which could show entoptic phenomena, or
be inspired by it.
Tim Stevenson is a floater sufferer from the US who took the
time to observe and draw what he actually sees. He sent me
that picture to raise public awareness of suffering from floaters.
There are a lot of people reading and posting in floater talk
web-forums who see the same kind of floaters drawn by Tim
(see picture). These floaters are also the ones I’m
writing about, the "shining structure floaters",
as I call them to better distinguish them from other floater
