When you think about something (a landscape, a person, a tree...) you visualize an image.
If you are awake you'll probably have your eyes opened.
If so, you're seeing an image.
How does that work correctly without getting your brain confused?

my very basic understanding as a lay person is that there's a part of the brain that visualizes inner content, another part that makes your image of the outside world, and another part that keeps them apart, and it's when that third thing isn't working that you hallucinate.. i wonder how lower animals see that have an inner world but nothing keeping it inside

your focus can go to either what you imagine or what you actually see. you can see some while you imagine, but not likely in much detail unless you practice. seems like artists should practice imagining images on their blank paper.
