“Hallucinations can be of various kinds (visual, auditory, tactile or psychic), but they always manifest a disturbance in a person's brain. They systematically occur in a context of personality imbalance or destructuring, and are generally accompanied by various behavioural disorders (agitation, fluctuating anxiety, inappropriate behaviour, etc.). This is why true "collective hallucinations" are a priori medically and logically impossible: they would presuppose that the same disturbances occur identically and simultaneously in different brains, in the absence of any objective external cause.”
