A thought experiment is hypothetical experiment designed to try and get closer to a truth of reality. Thought experiments are usually used when a real experiment cannot be conducted, either because the questions they ask are too abstract, too unethical to be tested, or because the necessary technology to perform the test does not yet exist. Many thought experiments from the past that couldn't have been conducted have since been conducted with improved technology.
