How to Exit the Collective Consciousness

When entering the Collective Consciousness for the first time, Sasha will give you some smelling salts. You can use these to leave the area, or any level that you are replaying to get get collectibles like the Hatbox in Loboto's Labyrinth. Just head into the pause menu and select 'Exit Brain'. This will take you back to Psychonauts HQ.
