But, how can scientists objectively dismiss a subjective experience as an "hallucination" when they don't have access to what was actually witnessed. I recently saw a ghostly shadow of my recently deceased cat. Was my mind, in a state of grief, conjuring up the image or did the spirit of my late cat make an appearance? How can you determine if I experienced a neruological hallucination or a spiritual experience?

This morning one of my breakfast eggs suddenly grew a mouth and told me that the lizard illuminati are trying to take over the world. How can you dismiss this subjective experience as a hallucination? You don't have access to what I witnessed!
