and whilst we're on that subject...

If someone produced an illusion of a mirage what would you believe you were seeing?

If it were an illusion of a mirage, it would not be a mirage hence being 'real' and whether it were a mirage or it were 'real' one would still believe it to have form as that is the 'function' of a mirage.

I need a paracetamol, real or placebo as long as it works the same.

I figure that the mirage thing is usually that shimmering, 'looks-like-water-on-the-ground-reflects-the-sky-heat-haze-phenomenon' and if you "knew what you were doing" you'd think it was just a mirage and keep moving even though the illusion might be covering something, like an actual oasis!
