Science is built up of facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.

This is a one-room game, and here's the room description:

The land of things that don't exist
You are in the land of things that don't exist. It is chock full of ephemeral entities of execrable eudaemonitude.

You can see a perfect circle . . . an elf . . . a life without suffering . . . Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction . . . an orange celery . . . an Antarctic Badminton League . . . some argon shoes . . . and an utterly exhaustive list of things that don't exist here.

There are many dozens more nonexistent things listed, which I have cut for the sake of brevity. Certainly, you can play the game to see more.

If you play the game, try typing "swim." Also, examine the "women safe from your powers of seduction," who, incongruously enough, do exist. In addition, examine the last digit of pi. In the original release of the game, there was a bug where you could pick up the last digit of pi, but this was corrected in Release 2.

One unusual aspect of this game is that you can't move around, you can't pick anything up (in Release 2, at least), and in general... the player's ability to change anything in this game world probably does not exist!

If you're up for 60 seconds of amusement, download this game. Otherwise, be warned... substantial content in this game does not exist!
