But the point you make is very valid and true, sometimes it hard enough to work out what's out there at the best of times.
I remember a long distance truck driver years ago driving south through Far North Queensland
desparately in need of sleep and saw an elephant on the road. He started to break then thought "Oops, no, it's just an hallucination." Then he saw the zoo keeper running out onto the road and the circus being set up nearby!! He stopped in time.
Regarding sailing hallucinations, I often hear people talking. I don't know what they're saying but I assume at the time that my husband is talking to someone. Nowhere near as interesting as seeing Ninjas though!
