organization phase
   A term used to denote a reaction type which comes second in a series of three reaction types described in hallucinating individuals, during which the initial astonishment of the "startling phase typically abates. The term stems from the Dutch hallucination experts Marius Romme (b. 1934) and Sandra Escher (b. 1945). In some individuals, the organization phase may never cease. In others, it may be followed by a "stabilization phase, during which the initial confusion has disappeared, and the individual has learned to deal with his or her hallucinatory experiences.
