intuitive hallucination
   The term intuitive hallucination is indebted to the Latin noun intuitus, which means sight, 'the looking at'. It was used, and possibly also introduced, by the 19th-century French dream researcher Maurice Macario to denote a hallucination not attributable to a malfunctioning of the perceptual system, but to 'mental' or 'intellectual' preoccupations. As such, intuitive hallucinations would seem to fit into the class of "centrifugal hallucinations. Macario uses the term intuitive hallucination in opposition to "sensorial hallucination, "ganglionic hallucination, and "sthenic hallucination.
