Here's an article about hallucinations I found:
Here's some quotes from the article that are very relevant to those who hear voices:

“It opens the possibility that if people with psychosis learn to expect to different things from their hallucinations, they might have different hallucinations,” she says. “The content [of hallucinations] has something to do with prognosis—the more mean and negative the voices, the worse the outcome.”

If you want me to post the entire article on this website tell me.

Yes indeed , I agree with the parts that you've quoted.. hallucinations are manifestations of thought. Your thoughts can definitely influence your hallucinations... I know this as a fact. I personally have influenced my visions (Visual hallucinations) just by thinking of stuff.. so the hallucinations are capable of being controlled through thought.. (Sometimes).

I agree that all mental health is on a spectrum.
For an example, the way humans see colors.
I guess all 5 senses are on a spectrum, if you think about it.
