Hearing voices in not a disease.

Three experiments actually:

One: think in English. What's that; an inner voice you say your thoughts in?

Two: listen to bagpipes all day at a Highland Games. Travel long distance in a quiet car after wards. What's that? Everyone in the car reporting occasional hearing bagpipes when there are none to be seen? Sense data re-created as if real! A natural ability.

The word "hallucination" is ambiguous. It is used to imply a fake experience. But hearing sense-data replay is not ambiguous.
A CD playing on your stereo is not a live band; but it is a real phenomenon.

Three: late at night, quiet location, when you have stayed up so late you can hardly keep your eyes open. Notice what happens in your head as you almost slip into sleep on and off. Anyone could do this.

What you can uncover:

The mechanism with which you voice thoughts in English: you get a more independent nature: bits of sentences being said. The undercurrent beneath conscious verbalised thought is being revealed.

Notice more: seems an internal theatre is operating: various people are attributed various sayings.

Explore more and you can map right into dream-type drama.

Like Stephen La Berge who explores lucid dreaming, I investigated.
