"An illusory snake in a goblet" is used to describe the psychological state of being frightened caused by taking illusions as reality.
In Jin Dynasty there was a man named Yue Guang who was fond of drinking alcohol.
One day, he invited a friend to his house to drink together.
Suddenly, his friend saw the reflection of a snack swimming in the goblet.
He got so much frightened that he took ill on bed after getting home.
And neither any doctor or any medicine could cure his illness.
Yue Guang came to see him and asked about the cause of his disease.
When he got to know the cause, he pulled his friend from the bed immdiately and took him to his house.
Yue Guang made his friend sit where he used to, pouring a goblet of alcohol for him, and asked him," Is there any snake reflection in the goblet?"
There was still a "snake reflection" in the goblet! Yue casually took away the bow hanging on the wall.
This time, the "snake reflection" disappeared.
"So it was the bow reflection that was in the goblet!" His friend at once got well from his illness.
