An "ALQ-hole"  (also defined here) is a to me fun (but also serious) ÆPT metaphor for a central non-sensory portion of an actention module (specifically a distress-driving actention module) that is kept from firing or caused to fire significantly readily because some of its excitatory synaptic receptors are being blocked by messages arriving from an inhibitory interneuron or because a presynaptic (directly upstream) excitatory neuron has reach a firing threshold that makes it stop the relay of messages by effecting a directly downstream pre or post synaptic inhibition.

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 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.

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