A thought experiment is hypothetical experiment designed to try and get closer to a truth about reality. Thought experiments are usually used when a real experiment cannot be conducted, either because they ask abstract questions, 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.
