Open eye meditation on eye floaters.

 

Introduction

Open eye meditation on eye floaters

This 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 volitantes" (see 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 -
Floater Structures in Ancient China

In 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.

Readers Hints, Experiences, and Pictures


Eye Floaters as Interference Patterns and Holograms?

"Moreover, the concentric circles of the floaters may be interference patterns or the so-called ‘Newton's Rings.’ These can be viewed with either monochromatic or white light..."

"Just made a real discovery.... I have been studying on the nature of the universe being a giant hologram and how the brain/mind is as well. I just realized the floaters, in Tibetan thigle, are actually holograms...."

These 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...

Mouches Volantes - Eye Floaters as Shining Structure of Consciousness.

 

Nestor's Knowledge on Eye Floaters


The seers’ hierarchy

Eye 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."
