Why we can’t actively hallucinate

My understanding is that it’s an error in the brain when using substances etc, but it shows we can imagine things that aren’t real. How come we can’t make ourselves see stuff like this on purpose?

You sort of can. It would normally mean your body isn’t working properly, though. Basically, if you could actively enter a trippy state, you’d possibly die as an animal, so evolution weeds that out. The closet you get naturally and healthily is hypnogogic hallucinations, which is a scary word for dreaming while you’re awake. This can happen when you wake up or if you’re tired.
