What hallucination reveals about our minds

Here is an author that has eluded my to-read list. Oliver Sacks.

I have a fascination with hallucinations. This video covers one particular kind, those caused by the Charles Bonnett syndrome.

Unlike psychotic hallucinations, that interact rather aggressively with the subject who suffers them, hallucinations caused by the Charles Bonnett syndrome, are non-interactive. Almost like watching a film that has nothing to do with the subject.

How the theater of the mind could be generated by the machinery of the brain
