Can anyone explain the phenomenon where people will have similar experiences while hallucinating? Whether it’s sleep paralysis or DMT, it seems strange that people across the world would see the same figures or geometrical patterns.

Well aspecially for the dmt and geometrical patterns, I guess one point is, that we hear a lot of story’s about those things and our brain can somehow relate, because it is “familiar”, as we heard or saw it quite often before.
An other options is, our brains are build pretty similar, even so we are all individuals, many habits are the same, maybe coming from instincts and others, passed through ages, the chemical build up in our brains and what not. therefore we get quite equal experiences, because our brains react in somewhat same ways.

These are all my own theories and far away from science as I looked nothing up for that nor am I some specialist in any form!
