is wa-a-ay too dependent on memes.
Get off the meme merry-go-round.


Hypotheticopolis is a city which is a sort of microcosm of the whole world, and also happens to be free from facts.[1] It is often treated as a testing ground for moral and philosophical problems that confront the Free World (e.g. whether torture should be allowed). And for a good reason too: for, to refer to facts instead of Hypotheticopolis will be very treasonous indeed.

Besides "Hypotheticopolis", this wondrous city is also known by many other names, such as "Twin Earth":

On Twin Earth, a brain in a vat is at the wheel of a runaway trolley.[2]

However, this city is usually not referred to by name, but rather by terms such as "if", "suppose", and "unknown unknowns". For example:

Suppose the FBI had captured Mohamed Atta before Sept. 11, 2001.
