An unreal image presented to the bodily or mental vision; a deceptive appearance; a false show; mockery; hallucination.
A sensation originated by some external object, but so modified as in any way to lead to an erroneous perception; as when the rolling of a wagon is mistaken for thunder.
a misinterpreted perception that is caused by mistaking something present for something it is not. Illusions commonly occur with information that is seen or heard. For example, a common illusion is misinterpreting the noise made by wind for a voice. By contrast, a hallucination is a strong sensory perception that one has of an object or event while awake, when no such object or event exists. Whereas illusions involve misperceptions, hallucinations do not. Thus, an example of a hallucination would be hearing voices that are not really there and are not misinterpretation of the wind or any other noises.
