I had two supposedly common things that I'm rather curious about from my "trip":
1. There was a constant auditory hallucination that was very similar to the "revving" type sound represented here throughout this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKdfYmej7Uw. What causes this? And what, if any, is the popular interpretation of this experience?
2. There was a strong visual hallucination in which whatever was the focus of my vision became, in part, the entirety of my vision. For instance, if I was looking at someone's eyes, my field of vision would be somewhat overcast by dozens of eyes. If I was looking at a tree branch, my vision would replicate that into a somewhat cathedral effect. What causes this alteration of vision?
