Mouches Volantes - Eye Floaters As Shining Structure Of Consciousnessby Floco Tausin
Floco Tausin tells the story about his time of learning with spiritual teacher and seer Nestor, taking place in the hilly region of Emmental, Switzerland. The mystic teachings focus on the widely known but underestimated dots and strands floating in our field of vision, known as eye floaters or mouches volantes. Whereas in ophthalmology, floaters are considered a harmless vitreous opacity, the author gradually learns to see them and reveals the first emergence of the shining structure formed by our consciousness.
»Mouches Volantes« explores the topic of eye floaters in a much wider sense than the usual medical explanations. It merges scientific research, esoteric philosophy and practical consciousness development, and observes the spiritual meaning and everyday life implications of these dots and strands.
Floco Tausin is a Graduate of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Bern, Switzerland. In theory and practice he is engaged in the research of visual phenomena in connection with altered states of consciousness and the development of consciousness.

I was reading the book: Mouches Volantes: Eye Floaters as Shining Structure of Consciousness, I am excited about this real-mystical story! It has sure two main reasons: 1. Reading the book, I became more and more aware that this shining structure made out of eye floaters is similar to the structure (matrix) in the science fiction-action film "Matrix" - the only difference for me is, that in the film the world is made out of a electronically structure and in the book the seer Nestor tells that the world is made out of a biological dot-matrix which we can dissolve through consciousness development. 2. The book is written in novel form filled with beautiful descriptions of natural landscape and many precise exercises that helped me now to see the shining structure and influence the spheres and threads in my vision. Floco when this what you wrote about the biological matrix in your book is really true, than you are the first human who bring a concrete visible model for consciousness development which can bring enlightenment! In every case, I wait and hope you will bring a second book with more of this interesting shining matrix-matter. I can really recommend this book!
This is a powerful novel in which the narrator, under the illusion of restoring an antique desk, meets and is taught by a seer, Nestor. He gradually realizes that his growth is tied to the piece of furniture, which "is like a mirror: it reflects the energy of your ideas and concepts directly back to you" (27). Initially one might be annoyed at the storyteller who seems so arrogant and reluctant to accept anything told to him by Nestor. Frustration with this slow-learning narrator, however, turns to understanding as we begin to see him as the embodiment of all of us who spend too much time denying the existence of, or our connection, to another world. Reminiscent of Carlos Castenada's The Teachings of Don Juan, Mary Summer Rain's No Eyes and Lynn Andrews' Medicine Woman, this book is based on a true story. We do not, however, have the hindrance of wondering whether or not it really happened. Many of the other books, especially Carlos Castenada's which claimed to be a true story of teachings by a Mesoamerican shaman, left the reader feeling let-down with the dispute about its veracity. There is no such problem here with the story presented as a novel. We are free to believe as much as we choose. The story reminds me of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray in which a young man's portrait progressively gets uglier and uglier as his evil ways in the world increase. Dorian Gray's beauty, however, does not diminish as his picture, hidden in his attic, shows the immorality of his actions. In Tausin's story, the antique becomes more and more beautiful during the slow restoration process, as the narrator comes closer and closer to understanding the other consciousness represented by his eye floaters. "Crossing the bridge is not a question of character, let alone fate. It is a decision.It is the point when a human being has to decide whether he or she wants to remain a human being that wants to continue to experience the small joys and woes of this world. Or if he or she wants. to outgrow themselves in an ecstatic way, and to see the world with the eyes of a seer from then on" (304). We tend to see earth as a small picture and we are often content with this limited view, afraid of losing what we know. The struggle is not easy. Years pass in the novel as the narrator learns. This is an allegory to our lives, reminding us that connecting with another possibility is not a one-step, easy ride. It forces a personal commitment from the reader. I recommend the journey. But be sure to keep an open mind and allow yourself to see beyond this image we call our world.
