(Softcover, 109 s. and 25 ill.)
We all have them, most of us see them, but only a few people pay attention to them: the scattered, transparent and mobile dots and strands in our field of vision. In ophthalmology, they are called “eye floaters” and explained as vitreous opacities.
But is this explanation correct? In this book, the author Floco Tausin follows the seers’ experience that eye floaters are not a cloudiness of the vitreous humour, but a shining structure and an expression of our state of consciousness.
In this collection of previously published and revised texts, the author explores spiritual dimensions of eye floaters. The focus is on seer Nestor’s view that floaters are first appearances of the shining structure of consciousness. As such, they can be used for open eye meditation and be intensified by ecstasy. Furthermore, floaters are discussed as a source of inspiration for Carlos Castaneda’s spiritual world and of reports of near-death experiences.
