No - sorry, it isn't a myth.
(And nothing the current state of science dares to talk about is "definite" anyway.)
If it were a myth, then certain chemicals (NOT illegal drugs) would have no effect on the scope and speed of brain activity - but they do. And I am not talking about "hallucinations" (which is a suspect term in itself).
I am in no position to offer "proof", especially not over the internet, on a public forum, nor am I inclined to do so in any case.
And besides, why would I?
Those who deny it also do so without presenting any "proof", no?
I just wanted to say that there is DEFINITELY no evidence that this is a myth; but there is substantial body of evidence to the contrary.

Unfortunately, this modality of thought does not come easy to many people. I accept that the reason you are not elaborating is because it cannot be expressed in such mediums as this.
However, that, in and of itself renders the point moot.
