Dots and Strands in our Field of Vision:
Vitreous Opacity or Light of Consciousness?

This is the latest issue of "Holistic Vision". I am Floco Tausin, author, consciousness researcher, and initiator of this spiritual project. The focus of "Holistic Vision" lies on entoptic phenomena, mainly on so-called eye floaters (in ophthalmology known as vitreous floaters or by the French term mouches volantes, see pictures).We see these as easily floating dots and strands in our field of vision. The close observation indicates that there is a correspondence between altered states of consciousness and specific appearances of floaters. Thus, the novel and provocative main thesis of this project is: eye floaters are the first appearances of a shining structure of consciousness within which we cover a distance to our spiritual origin. We can see and experience this way. As an object of concentration and meditation, these dots and strands are therefore a significant key to our consciousness development.

Lead Story

Cocoons and fibers. Eye floaters as a source of inspiration for Carlos Castaneda?

The late anthropologist and cult writer Carlos Castaneda has substantially contributed to the emergence of a Western New Age shamanism. His books are, among other things, reports about various subjective visual phenomena, perceived during extraordinary states of consciousness. This article is an investigation of these significantly abstract and geometrical phenomena, resembling entoptic phenomena like eye floaters. It discusses the similarities of Castaneda’s bubbles, cocoons, lines and fibers, on the one hand, and floaters on the other, and asks about the possibility of Castaneda being inspired by eye floaters.

E-mail from Eric

The following feedback was sent by reader Eric.

"Wow, this subject has intrigued me for some time now. I have been on a spiritual awakening path for a long time, but had no idea that the floaters I’ve been seeing could possibly relate to a higher degree of consciousness.

I first began noticing them after an altercation some years ago..."

Nestor's Knowledge on Eye Floaters

The outer conditions of seeing

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.

"Nothing in and about the human being develops independent from his lifestyle. Neither gray hair nor wrinkles, dots or strands," he answered back. "If many people can perceive these dots and strands, it means nothing other than

This picture is shown on a website operated by conspiracy theorist Brendan Michael James.

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.

Reader’s comments on the Holistic Vision Project

„I never imagined such a wild thesis that these are somehow related to the development of consciousness... and would have thought it extremely comical for anyone to take up this subject enough to write a book on it! Yet, I am fascinated …"
