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.

In-depth observations on eye floaters – a challenge
centuries, scholars try to find an explanation for the mobile,
scattered and transparent spheres and strings in our visual
field. Early on in ophthalmological tradition, the origin
was thought to be in the eye. The phenomenon was considered
a disorder or degeneration somewhere between cornea and retina.
Today, eye floaters are believed to be an opacity
of the vitreous. However, careful observation of
floaters reveals properties that challenge this dominant view
and call for a reconsideration of the ophthalmological explanation.

E-mail from Jackson Peterson
following feedback was sent by Dzogchen teacher Jackson Peterson
teach Dzogchen and thogal in Vienna. What contact have you
had thogal teaching? Thogal is the practice of developing
these spheres of light and chains, and they are considered
our basic primordial Awareness. There is a very complete database
of instruction on this practice in Dzogchen. ... I am totally
fascinated by what you are writing about. And everything you
mention regarding higher Awareness of the basic ground of
Reality is the same in Dzogchen teaching. Why don’t
you mention Dzogchen?"

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
The first effect caused by 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.
"In the process, you’ll also recognize that the
basic structure is the first effect caused by consciousness;
before anything else can come into existence, consciousness
is split up into light and matter through this structure."

Contemporary art representing entoptic phenomena – Floater
in the TV series Family Guy
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.
Family Guy is a US American cartoon
series that centers around the everyday lives of middle-class
family Griffin. The series is characterized by its complex
and often audacious humor and the overdrawn portrayal of everyday
problems. Typical are the short humoristic cut scenes or flashbacks
that are brought in to parody celebrities or TV series.

Reader’s comments on the Holistic Vision Project
okay.... what ever you say but these floaters that I have
are driving me over the edge!!! You can’t ignore when
your vision is blocked so badly that you can’t see when
driving and so on. Pretend all you would like but they don’t
go away ..."
been looking at my floaters ever since I was 5 years old,
and at the age of 12, my father taught me the spiritual aspects
of the illuminated dots and strands and how I should meditate
upon them as often as I could. … I was very excited
to have found your book on Amazon. I've read it twice now,
and will continue to read it as a source of my inspirations."
Thanks for your feedbacks!
