Would you file all such experiences as "hallucinations"?.. or even mere anomalies? Have you or do you see auras? Someone who has little or no
experiences seeing them may file such an experience ( seeing auras ) as a hallucination, yet how people see things can often be a hallucination of
Many of us claim someone did this or that and in FACT... they DIDN'T do this or that ( as an example )... Are we living or experiencing
hallucinations ever so subtle? How often do we create a reality ( real world ) that is mostly a self-construct reality or hallucination and outright
in error? P R firms and manipulators of all sorts are quite adept at making masses of people believe illusions as REAL?
Though your example is a personal experience.. I found it interesting that you filed it as "hallucination" and put it on the table for us and for
yourself as such. Anomaly, yes... but hallucination seems to help narrow the paradigm somewhat in search for the answers?
The whole realm of language ( and I mean more than words, or sight and sound ) but language.. such as a picture speaks a thousand stories... a
symbol.. an emblem.. an experience beyond words etc... hallucinations... visions.. dreams... creative imaginations and intuitions... on and on ..lol
We may get lost in the whole, almost nebulous or plastic / phantasmagorical aspect to it all, but there is a method to the madness eh? There is a way
through the subconscious ( and its language ) a way out of the experiential wilderness... Maybe it's like a lady who asked a famous Jazz Musician
what all this JAZZ is all about...? "If you don't know by now Lady, you will NEVER KNOW."
So there's those who know by experience or precept ( by example ) and those that don't? I wouldn't go so far as to claim one may "never know",
but I would certainly comprehend what a statement like that means! lol There's more to the picture than meets the eye. Guess if you've seen
spirits... ghosts etc... Those that haven't and don't may see things different, yet you have your own experience. Many a "doctor" will drug you
and claim such experiences some sort of dis-ease.... I claim those doctors ignorant and dangerous and in NO WISE appeal to any authority they may
demand. It's a dangerous logic when one case of sickness related to "visions" is applied to All CASES AND EXPERIENCES OF VISIONS.
Thus in a common language most share... Hallucinations is a blanket that covers ever so many experiences and abilities... such as many other "words"
and terms that have become very vague in meaning... such as religion, spiritual, science, reality, love etc etc....
People have and do see sounds, as in colors of sounds. But I have never heard tale of people hearing colors. It's almost like it's a one way street.
People for the most part consider colors like yellow and blue make green, when mixed. Yet this applies only to pigments and not light. a yellow and
blue light will make a grey-like color and not green. So the laws.. the physics involved are different. This may seem trivial in a sense, but there
are people known to see many things that convention ignores. Many have a philosophy that they will believe when they see, but our senses can deceive
eh? Let alone how many people will see and STILL not believe? lol How many will not see because they refuse to? Because they don't believe?
It reminds me of people who have dreamed the future and forget the experience or file it as they DIDN'T dream the future... Maybe it's that they
don't believe they CAN dream the future, therefore they DIDN'T.. why? Because they can't! Even though... they in fact did dream the future. Some go
so far as to claim nobody can dream the future... or since "I" can't see auras nobody see's them.
Half the trick might be what and how we choose to think. What you saw I don't know.. Like a UFO I once saw that was metallic for sure... ET or
Man-made I DON'T KNOW but the FACT it was a metallic ship and an Unidentified Flying Object... that my friend.. is an Absolute. It in no way followed
the laws of physics as handed out to students around the world. It obviously had some laws it operated with, but not as explained in the grand halls
of public "science".
No it wasn't a hallucination lol... more substantial then the "object" you saw, but still a matter of choosing for ourselves how to file the
experience. Many MANY things have been seen by people... don't think people haven't seen ghosts.. for thousands and thousands of years people have,
including this very day. Which brings me back to... "There's more to the picture than meets most peoples eye"...
We can "manifest a thought" with such subtle ease.. like a mere drawing on a piece of paper... an outright manifestation of our thought etc.... in a
very real substantial reality and world.. yet seeing a possible thoughtform manifested as we wake up is somehow NOT so subtle? Don't know what you
saw.. lol Is seeing a spirit or ghost a hallucination? Guess you don't know what you saw.. but labeling it "hallucination" may be an assumption
that you do know?
Why does your cat walk through walls?
Because it doesn't know it can't.
