Hallucinations occur in the waking state, and involve intense brain activity. IMEs occur in a state of unconsciousness, and in some cases subjects report memories of IMEs when their electroencephalogram was flat. How could the brain produce all the complex, energy-intensive ingredients that make up a hallucination, when it has little or no activity?
