Nestor's Knowledge on Eye Floaters - Discussion about the book "Mouches Volantes"
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 eye floaters from Nestor in his book "Mouches Volantes".
»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 that these people have already built up a certain inner pressure within themselves. Perhaps they haven’t done so deliberately and in a targeted manner. But people who lead a moderately natural life without wasting their energy in idiotic ways will experience that the inner pressure will increase a little in the course of their life. In addition, some people have a higher inner pressure and unbound energy at their disposal from their very birth. That’s the reason why some people are able to see the dots and strands already in their juvenile years – if they care to look out for it.
But that wasn’t the case with you. When you came here for the first time, you were missing any and all inner pressure. Perhaps you wouldn’t have seen the dots until you were sixty or seventy years of age – if at all. But as a result of practicing the exercises you’ve managed to live through this development in just a few years.«
Statement out of "Mouches Volantes – Eye Floaters. The Shining Structure of Consciousness"
What’s the reason for our ability to see eye floaters? Nestor answers this question by referring to the ideas of “energy” and “inner pressure”. Like other spiritual teachers, Nestor holds that life is created and maintained through the effect of a universal life force or energy. This energy has many names; we may know it as “breath” or “breath of life”, “prana”, “chi”, etc. This energy flows in and through us. If it flows freely in our body, we are healthy and vital. If, however, the flow of energy is blocked, illnesses may develop. Nestor connects the concept of the flow of energy with that of the “inner pressure”. An inner pressure arises if, through a corresponding way of life, more energy is accumulated in the body than may outflow. Physical and spiritual exercises transform the energetic potential of this pressure into spiritual energy. This energy can lead to extraordinary creative efforts in the domains of body movement, thinking or love. The ultimate art, according to the seers, is to selflessly give away this energy to everyone and everything in the “picture”, as it happens through ecstasy. This giving away generates and strengthens the perception of subjective visual phenomena which are partly unknown, partly familiar to us, like the so-called eye floaters.
This is also how Nestor and the seers explain how it comes that someone is able to see dots and strings in his or her field of vision even without special exercises or intentions, and without being aware of their meaning. For, over the years, the flow of energy usually increases, first as a result of bodily growth, then through the impact of intense experiences and growing life experience in general. The added confidence and deliberateness in different circumstances that people develop over the years may be understood as an expression of this increased flow of energy. The flow intensifies our sensation, also the inner sense (analogous to the ‘third eye’), with which we can recognize subtle objects. As this energy transformation process happens in every single moment, the development of mild forms of subjective visual appearances is common and widespread. What the seers call “consciousness development”
