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.

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
The static and the dynamic effect of the basic structure
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
category, a particular statement from the book on floaters
shall be presented and explained.
already know the static effect of seeing… This
one has to do with the spheres and strands, that is, the basic
structure. The dynamic effect, on the other hand, only shows
up in extreme situations – moments in which there is
a high level of intensity within you, when the amount of energy
is extraordinarily large in comparison to what you are able
to stand up to. Then we start to perceive tiny luminous spheres
moving fast in all directions..."

Hints, Experiences, and Pictures
Eye Floaters and pregnancy
am glad to have found your perspective on this issue of vision
fields and floaters. It is one near to me, and an issue of
interest since the birth of my son in 2009. My son had his
unique way of entering this physical earth world. At the very
very end of our pregnancy my body developed pre-eclampsia.
One thing midwife kept asking me if I was seeing any ‘floaters’
or dots in vision..."
Julie, for your interesting report. My knowledge
on pregnancy is very limited and, of course, second-hand.
Also, while I talked to pregnant women about their state of
being and feeling, I’ve never heard about floaters being
more intense. However, these women left no doubt that pregnancy
is an extraordinary psychophysical state. Or in other words:
a state of intensified energy and consciousness. This is culminated
in the moments of giving birth to a child..."

"Painless Torture" by Andrej Piatkowski
introduces realistic, artistic, and/or spiritual/religious
works from different cultures and times which show –
or may be inspired by – floaters or other entoptic phenomena.
Thanks to the digitization of visual media and their spread
via the internet, we now have easy access to numerous pictures
and even some videos that represent floaters from the subjective
perspective. One of these videos is Eye-Floaters:
"painless torture". It shows in
less than a minute how floaters look like from the perspective
of a floater sufferer who is walking in a park....
Show me the video...

new in the scientific research on floaters and other entoptic

experiencing flashes and spots in their perceptive fields
often resort to consulting an ophthalmologist without finding
an answer, mainly because these symptoms are not necessarily
associated with pathology of the eye. The purpose of our research
study was to understand the experience of these patients,
differentiate among them, and propose different ways of treating
them. We carried out an eye examination and echography, individual
semistructured interviews, and dependency grids with 11 patients
at the ophthalmology department of a public hospital in northern

Readers’ comments on the Holistic Vision Project
I was amazed to see almost full circles, not just one but
three, Ive never seen anything like this shape before. I then
remember you & wondered about doing some research just
out of sheer curiosity. … Thought I’d check my
email to see if I could remember the name of the floater site,
wow who did I discover an email from – exactly the site
I was looking for."
so happy i found you on the internet!!"
Thanks, Paules and Astrid, for your positive feedback. I hope
your curiosity and happiness inspire all of us to brighten
our day and illuminate our pictures!
