Trippy video recreates what it feels like to hallucinate

Ever wondered what it feels like to hallucinate?
Well, thanks to the power of technology, you no longer have to as one tech-savvy maestro has recreated an extremely trippy video depicting exactly what it feels like to hallucinate.
The short clip, just over a minute-and-a-half long, shows a distorted reality shot at POV-style angle of someone walking through a lush green field - with added blinks and all to make it feel that tinier bit more real.
The journey takes the viewer to down a bath, across the grass, towards a pile of logs and up a tree trunk.
However, the whole visual is is blurred, distorted and seemingly forever warping and twisting into something else only to change back just as quick.
The whole thing's a total trip if you ask me - pardon the pun.
"Most accurate shroom visuals my opinion," the overlay text reads.
And no, those aren't the 'shrooms' you'd find in a stir-fry but more the ones you'd find on a night out in Amsterdam.
The post has since gone viral after clocking up over 4.7 million views on the platform with thousands upon thousands of people eager to share their reactions to the simulation.
Needless to say, many were totally freaked out by the whole thing.
"The way I would be on the floor sobbing," admitted a third.
Instead of freaking out, a whole bunch of people were beyond impressed at how 'accurate' the depiction was.
"Most accurate I’ve seen," wrote one TikTok user, while another added: "The ground looking like it’s breathing is so real."
"Literally this is how it is fr," claimed a third, "it’s amazing."
Other aficionados, however, added in their own personal experiences with hallucinating.
"Pretty good," declared one, "but I think it would be better if the morphing was in a more geometric pattern."
A second advised: "More detail and less warp when you stare at something."
And a final TikToker wrote: "This but more faces everywhere."
Well that's terrifying. What do you make of it?
