HALLUCINATIONS                             

Definitions of 'Hallucination' include:

Hallucination: A perception experienced in the absence of an external stimulus to the sense organs, with a similar quality to a true perception. May be experienced by tired normal people, and not infrequently during the transition from sleeping to waking. It's only a psychotic symptom if the subject loses touch with external reference: e.g. a vision experienced during an LSD trip which the subject knows is due to the effect of the drug is not psychotic. Hallucination has to be distinguished from an illusion (a misperception of an external stimulus).

Hallucination: A profound distortion in a person's perception of reality, typically accompanied by a powerful sense of reality. An hallucination may be a sensory experience in which a person can see, hear, smell, taste, or feel something that is not there.
