No vemos con los ojos, sino con el cerebro; de ahí que muchas veces veamos cosas que no están delante de nosotros, cosas que a veces llamamos apariciones, fantasmas o visiones, conceptos, todos ellos, que obedecen al término genérico de alucinaciones». Pero las alucinaciones no son sólo visuales. Como nos explica Oliver Sacks en su nuevo y fascinante libro, las alucinaciones también pueden ser olfativas o auditivas. Cuántas veces hemos «oído» que alguien nos llamaba y al volvernos no había nadie; o hemos experimentado un olor cuya presencia es físicamente imposible; o hemos creído que alguien nos seguía; o hemos «visto» algo que l. a. razón nos cube que no pertenece a nuestro mundo. Asociadas en l. a. mentalidad renowned con l. a. locura, las alucinaciones obedecen muchas veces a un uncomplicated problema neurológico con nombre y apellido, y tienen más que ver con los angeles privación sensorial, l. a. ebriedad, los angeles enfermedad o algún tipo de lesión. Quienes padecen migrañas pueden ver arcos de luz o figuras liliputienses. los angeles gente que pierde los angeles vista puede compensar su carencia con un rico mundo visible alucinatorio, e incluso el basic hecho de dormirnos o despertarnos puede causar que el mundo onírico y el actual se fusionen en una imaginería imposible. Gran parte de nuestra fantasía well known y nuestro folklore se basa en las alucinaciones, sin las cuales no podemos comprender figuras como los ángeles, las brujas y los alienígenas, ni tampoco algunas obras de autores tan conocidos como Dostoievski, Evelyn Waugh, August Strindberg o Amy Tan, víctimas todos ellos de alucinaciones en algún momento de su vida. Pero las alucinaciones no son fenómenos negativos sino positivos, y constituyen, de hecho, una de las mejores ventanas que poseemos para asomarnos a los angeles complejidad de los circuitos cerebrales y a los angeles forma en que éstos nos muestran los angeles realidad o, a veces, crean los angeles suya propia. Oliver Sacks vuelve a hacer gala de su singular talento como narrador, su sentido del humor y su inmensa cultura para plantear cuestiones que ponen en entredicho nuestra percepción del mundo y, muchas veces, nuestra propia identidad. Desde las visiones religiosas y su explicación fisiológica hasta el uso de drogas psicodélicas como puerta a una percepción inside que los sentidos nos niegan, los relatos del health care provider Sacks van más allá del mero historial médico y constituyen una auténtica historia cultural de l. a. percepción, un estudio antropológico de una supuesta anormalidad que no es, en el fondo, más que el reverso de lo que normalmente conocemos como realidad. «Oliver Sacks es mi héroe, y para mí todos sus libros son el libro del año» (Hilary Mantel, Wall road Journal). «Fascinante. los angeles comprensión del general practitioner Sacks hacia sus pacientes y su perspectiva filosófica transforman simples casos clínicos en relatos que iluminan las complejidades del cerebro humano y los misterios de l. a. mente humana» (Michiko Kakutani, ny Times). «Otra joya de libro. Sacks integra hábilmente l. a. literatura, el arte y los angeles historia médica en sus fascinantes relatos» (Library Journal).
