Freud's opinion on hallucinations
   In 1937 the Austrian founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) characterized hallucinations as follows. "Perhaps it may be a general characteristic of hallucinations to which sufficient attention has not hitherto been paid that in them something that has been experienced in infancy and then forgotten re-emerges - something that the child has seen or heard at a time when he could still hardly speak and that now forces its way into consciousness, probably distorted and displaced owing to the operation offorces that are opposed to its re-emergence."
