Open eye meditation on eye floaters

"Holistic Vision" is the quarterly newsletter by the author and consciousness researcher Floco Tausin.

Mouches Volantes - Eye Floaters as Shining Structure of Consciousness.

Nestor's Knowledge

The light of concentration

"Today you have seen that shining light for the first time. And starting today, you should, when looking at your dots and strands, apply enough attention and concentration each time so that your basic structure starts to light up. Therefore, the way your dots and strands appear when looking at them will show you your actual level of concentration..."

Buddha of intersections

"One has to make converge the optical rainbow bindu with the bindu floating inside the eyeball.

Even today, there are many artists who are inspired by entoptic perceptions and do entoptic art. So does Surmeet Kaur. Surmeet is an Indian painter to whom entoptic phenomena are meaningful not only artistically, but also spiritually...

In contrast to these earlier studies, the authors apply modern research standards to determine psychometric measures of creativity...
