So maybe what you called "the world" here just is whatever it is we seem to understand. In this case, no need to assume knowledge. Some hallucinations may give you the certainty that you understand how the world works.
What about tangible evidence that your understanding leads to consistent, positive outcomes and a more enjoyable, flourishing life?
Hallucinations look just like tangible evidence. And you just can't ignore them.
I'm not sure how "positive outcomes and a more enjoyable, flourishing life" is necessary for understanding the world. But anyway, hallucinations can make your life looks enjoyable and flourishing.
