I got an answer for everything, mostly wrong but still an answer.
There are several chemicals that the mind makes specifically to cause
hallucinations. Seratonin has lots of uses, but can do this. Your brain
also make DMT (DiMethylTryptamine I think) which is a VERY serious
hallucinogen. The brain is full of them. In combination wit a seizure,
or even a waking twilight sleep, hallucinations do occur, in all of us.

As for dualism, I believe that this is taught by our society, and
religions. I do not hink that there is an underlying physical reason,
but there may be.
