Did anyone ever question : why seeing worms is a common or the most common hallucination in people?

In my experience, it's not the most common hallucination people experience, or even common at all.

Auditory hallucinations are actually the most common. This usually manifests as hearing voices. I think the hallucination you are talking about *might* be the most common in substance abuse withdrawals, but don't quote me on that. Even then, I think it's more of a tactile hallucination where you feel things crawling on your skin as opposed to seeing them.
