Settings, sceneries, and landscapes can be described as a subjective effect component that manifests within both external and internal hallucinations. They are the experience of the setting in which the plot of an external or internal hallucination occurs. These are capable of manifesting a seemingly infinite variety of potential places and settings.

When explored, the geography of these settings is capable of organizing itself as static and coherent. However, it will usually manifest as a non-linear, nonsensical and continuously ever-changing layout which does not obey the rules of everyday physics. Regarding the chosen locations, appearance and style of these settings, they seem to be selected at random and are often entirely new and previously unseen locations. They do, however, play a heavy emphasis on replicating and combining real life locations stored within the person's memories, especially those which are prominent in one's life and daily routine.

There are some common present archetypes within this component. These commonly include the visitation of:

Planetary systems, galaxies, quasars, jungles, rain forests, deserts, ice-scapes, cities, natural environments, caves, space habitats, vast structures, civilizations, technological utopias, ruins, machinescapes, historical settings, rooms and other indoor environments, incomprehensible geometric landscapes and more.
