Amplification and intensification cycles
Amplification and intensification cycles is defined as an effect which results in three or more positional states of mind that may occur simultaneously and swap between each other at seemingly random intensities and intervals. These intervals are generally 10-30 minutes in length but can occasionally be considerably shorter.
The first of three possible alternate states are defined as the experience of cognitive enhancements which feel is if they drastically improve the person's ability to think clearly. This includes analysis enhancement, thought organization, and creativity enhancement.
The second of three possible states are defined as the experience of intensifications which could be considered either functional or dysfunctional behavior. This includes focus intensification, emotion intensification, and suggestibility intensification.
The third of three possible states are defined as the experience of cognitive suppressions which feel as if they drastically inhibit the person's ability to think clearly. These typically include specific effects such as creativity suppression, language suppression, and analysis suppression.
Amplification and enhancement cycles are most commonly induced under the influence of heavy dosages of lysergamides, such as ALD-52, and LSD-25; it also is induced under the influence of heavy dosages of quasi-psychedelic phytocannabinoids, such as Delta-9-THC, and Delta-11-THC.
