I'm looking for an adjective that I can put before the noun 'concept':

A concept that seems random, wild (wild in the sense of drawing on various ideas and mixing them together) and built on wishful thinking and can hardly be proved.

2a marked by fancy and unrestrained imagination in conception, thought, or consideration : not governed or ascertained by facts, realities, and reason

  2. given to whims; capricious
  3. quaint, unusual, or fantastic.
