Its totally possible to hallucinate a person who isn't actually there.
I'm a bit of a veteran-I have had halluciations from: High fever,total exhaustion,high altitude,and other recreational/shamanic activities.
The high fever/recreational ones I knew were not real,although they seemed real.
These were mostly visual disturbances/colours/patterns.
The ones I had from total exhaustion were next level-I saw small sliver goblin like beings,and they were helping me keep going when I should have
collapsed from exhaustion(so it seemed at the time).
I also saw a mother and two kids flying a kite-I could hear them speaking,laughing and hear the kite flapping in the wind.
This was clear as day to me,and seemed real-but my climbing partners told me there was nothing there but the snow storm.I don't believe in
ghosts...but those people looked real to me.
Same trip,I saw a gigantic black/irridescent/fractal praying mantis god emerge from behind a huge mountain.
I could hear it making otherworldly noises,and it was looking at me-there was drool dripping off its mandibles.
All those were great experiences,and I sort of knew they were not real-except for the kite kids.They still freak me out a bit.
But the ones that have been the most weird,disturbing and awesome at the same time were the hallucinations from using shamanic/ethnogenic plants.
I met an entity that is impossible to fully describe but I will try-
It was a female,and she was at giving vibes of the most beautiful love,warmth and protection that I have ever felt-but at the same time was the most
terrifying and malevolent lovecraftian looking beast I have ever seen.
She exists outside our reality,but can influence and observe.
I call it the "cosmic vortex crone."
When I "met" this entity,it was on a grand scale-universal/other dimensional maybe-the entity was bigger than galaxies,and her mouth was wide open and
was sucking in-folding in- all time and space,kind of like a black hole.
It noticed me and was trying to pull me in.The noise it was making was more terrifying than I can describe.But there was a deep love there as well..so
That experience stayed with me-although I think it was most likley my brain playing tricks,It was the kind of experience that religions are made
But if that..thing is our God-then we are beyond all help or hope.
