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.

Yin and Yang, Bi and Cong -
Structures in Ancient China
Western culture, the phenomenon of eye floaters (or muscae
volitantes) is primarily understood in line with modern ophthalmology
as “vitreous opacities”. However, the review of
mythical and spiritual visual arts from former and non-Western
cultures discloses abstract symbols that resemble the typical
structures of shining structure floaters. This suggests
that floaters have been widely interpreted as a mythical or
spiritual phenomenon; and that there might be a perceptual
dimension of floaters that is hardly known to modern man.
This article takes the reader to the visual worlds of ancient
China and suggests that floaters have found their way into
the art and imagination of this Far East civilization.

Eye Floaters as Interference Patterns and Holograms?
the concentric circles of the floaters may be interference

are very interesting insights by Jackson and Enck!
A while ago, I wrote an article suggesting that the holographic
model of the universe is much more suitable to understand
the phenomena of floaters. It's in German, but to sum it up:
The mechanical worldview, upon which modern ophthalmology
rests, may be sufficient to understand the everyday perception
of floaters. In intense states of consciousness however, it
is possible to experience phenomena like...

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
The seers’ hierarchy
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.
"But seeing also reveals that there are hierarchies,
"he went on." There’s not just that one sphere
but many; in order to arrive at that one sphere, you have
to pass through the other spheres and strands. Hierarchy as
such is therefore already laid out in our consciousness."
