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. .

The description of these "ill-defined" floaters fits the idiopathic ones at issue. The surgeons hold the opinion, that this type is not in the vitreous, but must be between vitreous and retina, a space called "bursa premacularis" (Geller, n/a; Johnson n/a; cf. Tausin 2009b).


Lead Story

In-depth observations on eye floaters – a challenge to ophthalmology

For centuries, scholars try to find an explanation for the mobile, scattered and transparent spheres and strings in our visual field. Early on in ophthalmological tradition, the origin was thought to be in the eye. The phenomenon was considered a disorder or degeneration somewhere between cornea and retina. Today, eye floaters are believed to be an opacity of the vitreous. However, careful observation of floaters reveals properties that challenge this dominant view and call for a reconsideration of the ophthalmological explanation.

Is there a relationship between Dzogchen teachings and Eye floaters?


Reader’s Hints, Experiences, and Pictures

E-mail from Jackson Peterson

The following feedback was sent by Dzogchen teacher Jackson Peterson

"I teach Dzogchen and thogal in Vienna. What contact have you had thogal teaching? Thogal is the practice of developing these spheres of light and chains, and they are considered our basic primordial Awareness. There is a very complete database of instruction on this practice in Dzogchen. ... I am totally fascinated by what you are writing about. And everything you mention regarding higher Awareness of the basic ground of Reality is the same in Dzogchen teaching. Why don’t you mention Dzogchen?"

Mouches Volantes - Eye Floaters as Shining Structure of Consciousness.


Nestor's Knowledge on Eye Floaters

The first effect caused by 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.

"In the process, you’ll also recognize that the basic structure is the first effect caused by consciousness; before anything else can come into existence, consciousness is split up into light and matter through this structure."

Quarterly Picture

Contemporary art representing entoptic phenomena – Floater in the TV series Family Guy

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.

Family Guy is a US American cartoon series that centers around the everyday lives of middle-class family Griffin. The series is characterized by its complex and often audacious humor and the overdrawn portrayal of everyday problems. Typical are the short humoristic cut scenes or flashbacks that are brought in to parody celebrities or TV series.

Reader’s comments on the Holistic Vision Project

"Yeah okay.... what ever you say but these floaters that I have are driving me over the edge!!! You can’t ignore when your vision is blocked so badly that you can’t see when driving and so on. Pretend all you would like but they don’t go away ..."
-- EP

"I've been looking at my floaters ever since I was 5 years old, and at the age of 12, my father taught me the spiritual aspects of the illuminated dots and strands and how I should meditate upon them as often as I could. … I was very excited to have found your book on Amazon. I've read it twice now, and will continue to read it as a source of my inspirations."
