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.

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

following feedback was sent by reader S.
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
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

Knowledge on Eye Floaters
Inner pressure and sexual 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
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..."

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