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?

Because we have not evolved to do that. The explanation is likely that there is not a survival advantage to actively hallucinate but would likely be a huge disadvantage. So they are not selected for ad so we cant do that.
