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. .

Floaters as receptive fields.


Lead Story

Vitreous opacity vs. nervous system - Do eye floaters arise from the visual nervous system?

For centuries, scholars have found different explanation for eye floaters, the mobile, scattered and transparent spheres and strings in our visual field. Early on, the origin was thought to be in the eye and the phenomenon was considered a disorder or degeneration somewhere between pupil and retina. Today, eye floaters are believed to be an opacity of the vitreous. However, careful observation of floaters reveal regular structures that call the degeneration thesis into question. These structures strikingly resemble the morphological and functional structures of receptive fields of the visual nervous system. Thus the hypothesis of this article: so-called "idiopathic" (harmless) eye floaters are a visible expression of neuronal processes.

Reader’s Hints, Experiences, and Pictures

E-mail from S.

The following feedback was sent by reader S.

"I have been interested in your information about eye floaters for some time. I am certainly sure that you are correct about eye floaters being an indicator of states of consciousness. Here is a little of my story that I thought you might be interested in.
Ever since I could remember I have experienced "floaters" in front of my eyes. Even as a child I remember asking my mother what they meant and why I had them. My mother couldn’t explain them.
When I was young I would play games..."

Mouches Volantes - Eye Floaters as Shining Structure of Consciousness.


Nestor's Knowledge on Eye Floaters

Inner pressure and sexual energy

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.

"We draw the energy and the willpower it needs for that [building up the inner pressure, author’s note] from a correct and appropriate lifestyle, for the most part from pulling up and ›vaporizing‹ our sexual energy. Then you’ll be able to put your energy into the picture as a whole. The picture in turn will become more beautiful and colorful to you..."

Quarterly Picture

Contemporary art representing entoptic phenomena – "Sunflowers Figure and Bird" by William Hundley

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.

Texas photographer William Hundley likes three things: jumps, cloths and cheeseburgers. He’s photographing all of them. The cheeseburgers do not matter here. The jumps do: Street Jumps, Summer Love Street Jumps, Buffed Jumps – the artists takes lots of pictures of people jumping in different scenes. Moreover, Hundley likes to hide people behind cloths. Let the people wrapped in clothes jump and you get a photo series called "Entoptic Phenomena".

Reader’s comments on the Holistic Vision Project

"I enjoy your newsletter and your insights. I never met anyone who thought there was any significance in eye floaters or phenomena. I'm not sure what it means, but I do sense that it's significant to watch and welcome these changes in my eyes and the corresponding changes in my consciousness."
