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.

Cocoons and fibers. Eye floaters as a source of inspiration
for Carlos Castaneda?
late anthropologist and cult writer Carlos Castaneda has substantially
contributed to the emergence of a Western New Age shamanism.
His books are, among other things, reports about various subjective
visual phenomena, perceived during extraordinary states of
consciousness. This article is an investigation of these significantly
abstract and geometrical phenomena, resembling entoptic phenomena
like eye floaters. It discusses the similarities of
Castaneda’s bubbles, cocoons, lines and fibers,
on the one hand, and floaters on the other,
and asks about the possibility of Castaneda being inspired
by eye floaters.

"Wow, this subject has intrigued me for some time now.
I have been on a spiritual awakening path for a long time,
but had no idea that the floaters I’ve been seeing could
possibly relate to a higher degree of consciousness.
first began noticing them after an altercation some years

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
The outer conditions of seeing
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.
"Nothing in and about the human being develops independent
from his lifestyle. Neither gray hair nor wrinkles, dots or
strands," he answered back. "If many people can
perceive these dots and strands, it means nothing other than...."

Realistic representation of eye floaters – Brendan James
picture is shown on a website operated by conspiracy theorist
Brendan Michael James.
The 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.

„I never imagined such a wild thesis that these are
somehow related to the development of consciousness... and
would have thought it extremely comical for anyone to take
up this subject enough to write a book on it! Yet, I am fascinated
