quasium,

pl. quasia: a word, name, expression that hints — convincingly enough — at some sizable text, tradition, science, lore of which theres actually none or little (or the connection is fake — so the pseudo-Latin term is a bit of a quasium itself). A complexity appetizer in art and conversation, quasia add depth, spur imagination “cheaply”; exploiting the instinct of sociality, give the warm tickling of a crowdsource — an illusion of a vast continent of civilization where in reality the cliff edge is terrifyingly close.
