An "ALQ-hole" is a (to me fun) ÆPT metaphor for a central non-sensory portion of an actention module, specifically (by default) a distress driving/manifesting such, that is kept from firing and relaying excitatory messsage because its excitatory synaptic receptors are being blocked from relaying the messages (or because a directly upstream located excitatory neuron has become prevented from sending such neural information) by inhibitory messages arriving from a SHI threat detecting inhibitory interneuron.

In other words, an 'ALQ-hole' refers to metabolically muted state (a hiatus of metabolic hecticness) of neurons that are central components of an actention module prevented from relaying excitatory neural messages as the result of a reflexive "selective unconsciousness" rendering response; a specific hibernation (SH) initiating distress-blocking response; one initiated as soon as a neural ASSS has automatically assessed that it has ended up under a (by defintion always circumstantial) threat of "Specific Hibernation"  (SH) imploring type.

An ALQ-hole can also be thought of as a stretch of a neural circuitry that got blocked from being travelled on by excitatory messages destined to drive a maladaptive response of distress-type — a response that by ÆPT definition is maladaptive during a for any reason ended up under SH imploring threat.

An ALQ-hole is a consequence of a CURSES having been caused by any (from tardily to speedily ended up under) SH-imploring threat.
