Open eye meditation on eye floaters.


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. .

Lead Story

Lights from the Other World.
Floater structures in the visual arts of modern and present-day shamans

This article is based on the assumption that prehistoric shamanic rituals include the perception, interpretation and depiction of what we today call "eye floaters"
(muscae volitantes). It is suggested that, together with other shamanic symbols, floaters continue to be experienced and depicted in later shamanic societies up to the present day. The present article supports this thesis from the examples of modern Siberian and contemporary Tukano shamans. A closer look at their visual arts reveals geometric structures and characteristics that are typical of eye floaters.

Readers Hints, Experiences, and Pictures

" There are more things in heaven and earth …"

No floaters, but a whole bunch of different subjective visual phenomena, as seen by reader Karen. Floco comments from a physiological and spiritual perspective.

Karen: "I was diagnosed during an exam for eyeglasses as having floaters about 2 years ago. I am 62 years old. I am not always aware of them and yet I do have several direct experiences that I wanted to share with you…"

Floco: Dear Karen, your list of such phenomena is a wonderful example that "there are more things in heaven and earth, then are dreamt of in your philosophy", as Shakespeare’s Hamlet tells his friend Horatio after having seen his dead father’s spirit...

Mouches Volantes - Eye Floaters as Shining Structure of Consciousness.


Nestor's Knowledge on Eye Floaters

The layers of consciousness

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 new category, a particular statement from the book on floaters shall be presented and explained.

"For you, this cup is always at the same distance from you. You could sit here for a lifetime and stare at this cup – it would always appear to be at the same distance from you. That’s the case because your consciousness is very stable within a certain layer. This stability is something enforced on every one of us – through education, impartment of values, viewpoints and ways of thinking..."

Shining structure floaters by Tim Stevenson.


Quarterly Picture

Eye floaters by Tim Stevenson

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.

Tim Stevenson is a floater sufferer from the US who took the time to observe and draw what he actually sees. He sent me that picture to raise public awareness of suffering from floaters. There are a lot of people reading and posting in floater talk web-forums who see the same kind of floaters drawn by Tim (see picture). These floaters are also the ones I’m writing about, the "shining structure floaters", as I call them to better distinguish them from other floater types...
