what makes it so real is as follows:
>you see the shadowman
>you think "Oh shit, I'm really seeing it."
>you think "Oh shit, IT'S ACTUALLY HERE AND ABOUT TO FUCKING KILL ME OR SOMETHING!"
>your brain freaks the fuck out, thinking it's about to die, and pumps you with a fuck ton of adrenaline whilst validating your fear and doing all it can to discern the actions and appearance of the shadowman which it now takes to be REAL
>once the shadowman disappears, your are left on alert, in a delirious state, and keep looking to where he was, remembering how real he was, how he was right there.
and then BOOM. the shadownman is real.
So long as you continue to think that he is real, you WILL see him. I can't sleep in complete darkness ever since I saw the shadowman (dude ruined the darkness for me, gave me sleep terrors). But I have dismissed his existence, and he does not appear in any of my trips any longer. You can dismiss spiders, too. Just realize that it's an illusion, that the make-up of the spiders could form any shape you wish, or just be abstract squiggly lines if left alone.
And yeah, the dude saying psychosis hasn't experienced psychosis. If you think that you're opening a portal to demons, fine, that's a belief. It's only once you become haunted in daily life by thoughts and hallucinations that there's any cause for worry.
This stuff makes you dissociate, and makes you delirious. With that combination, it's very easy to see magic and ghosts and demons, and just as easy to believe them. I ABSOLUTELY feel that I am being transported into another world when there's enough dxm in the mix (dissociation is surreal).
But, as the trip falls, you have to start thinking about the two dimensions, and you have to realize that living in both is not "healthy" or rational in this dimension. The ego does not want to live in that dimension, and it can make that dimension into hell if you should start to fall too far, because it does not want to be dismantled. There's plenty of buddhist shit to think about here, but if you seek to continue a normal life in this dimension, you have to respect the boundary and keep the two separate.
