Eye Floaters in the Art and Religion of Indigenous Cultures

Stone Age Europe, Central Asia and America

(ebook, ePub and mobi files)

We all have them, most of us see them, but only a few people pay attention to them: the scattered, transparent and mobile dots and strands in our field of vision. In ophthalmology, they are called “eye floaters” and explained as vitreous opacities.

But is this explanation correct? In this book, the author Floco Tausin follows the seers’ experience that eye floaters are not a cloudiness of the vitreous humour, but a shining structure and an expression of our state of consciousness.

In this collection of previously published and revised texts, the author explores the shining structure of consciousness in the arts and religion of indigenous cultures. Topics include the geometric art in Stone Age Europe, the shamanic beliefs and art of traditional societies in Central Asia and South America, as well as the rock art, crafts, architecture and myths of Native Americans of the USA and Canada.
