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.

Eye Floaters in American Shamanic ceremonies
as far back as I can remember I have always been able
to see floaters but never thought much of them beyond
that of a medical phenomenon. I didn’t even believe
in any of the New Age ideas, so I wasn’t about to make
a correlation between the two. However ..."
Sebastian, for your report. It would be interesting to know
if and what meaning these shamans, druids and ecstatics of
all sorts gave and give to the appearance of floaters, as
well as if and how they work with floaters. This may be somewhat
difficult to find out since these consciousness workers are
not usually familiar with the Western term "floaters".
Regarding the native cultures of the Americas...

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
The art of releasing energy
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
category, a particular statement from the book on floaters
shall be presented and explained.
have a relaxing effect and bring about calmness," the
thinker said. "I can stay seated and regularly release
my energy as ecstasy into the world. On the other hand, if
you are not a seer and your body is ›shut off‹,
then you’ll always have to fight in order to release
your energy. Then you have to run around, climb up and down
mountains or do the ›doctor thing‹ – or
do it altogether. You have to toil and sweat, you must be
glad and upset. And you’re making love with it..,"

"Myodesopsies" by Edith Dekyndt
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.
– Belgian artist Edith Dekyndt has created an installation
that addresses the issue of eye floaters. The work is called
“Myodesopsies” – an Ancient Greek term meaning
“seeing flies”, from which the French “mouches
volantes” developed. The installation “Myodesopsies”
was originally created in 2001 as a film that showed sequences
of text fragments on varying luminous backgrounds. The installation
was shown at several exhibitions...
