and Strands in our Field of Vision:
Vitreous Opacity or Light of Consciousness?
is the latest issue of "Holistic Vision". I am Floco
Tausin, author, consciousness researcher, and initiator of
this spiritual project. The focus of "Holistic Vision"
lies on entoptic phenomena, mainly on so-called eye
floaters (in ophthalmology known as vitreous floaters
or by the French term mouches volantes,
pictures).We see these as easily floating
dots and strands in our field of vision. The close observation
indicates that there is a correspondence between altered states
of consciousness and specific appearances of floaters. Thus,
the novel and provocative main thesis of this project is:
eye floaters are the first appearances of a shining structure
of consciousness within which we cover a distance to our spiritual
origin. We can see and experience this way. As an object of
concentration and meditation, these dots and strands are therefore
a significant key to our consciousness development.

The Eye Floater Phenomenon between Science and Religion
aim of this article is to consider the meaning of the subtle
characteristics of eye floaters, as conveyed by mystic and
seer Nestor. Suggesting that floaters can be relevant not
only for individual spirituality, but for society and ophthalmology
as well, I address the following questions: How do
floaters relate to entoptic phenomena which are known to have
spiritual relevance in some indigenous shamanic societies?
Does Nestor’s claims about floaters require a modified
ophthalmological interpretation? And: To what extent is it
reasonable to think of floaters as a spiritual phenomenon?

following feedback was sent by reader Chris
When you describe floaters "lighting up"–
please explain further. Do they glow even against a dark background,
or only when illuminated by external light or in front of
a light colored background? For example, the thinnest strands
of my floaters certainly do seem whiter than the background,
but they do not remain white when in front of a dark background..."

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
The inner sense
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.
"In order to recognize what this structure really is,
it needs more than just the physical eyes; it needs the inner
sense,« he explained. »The inner sense is like
an inner eye. A person having trained his inner sense to perfection
is a seer..."

Spiritual art representing entoptic phenomena – "Several
Circles" by Wassily Kandinsky
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.
The Russian painter and art theorist Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944)
counts as one of the founder of abstract art. Influenced by
Monet’s impressionism, he experimented with alternative
styles of painting in the early 20th century, a time of increasing
uncertainty and crisis...
