Where am I? (MC^2+1)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

Where am I? (MC^2+1)

Its end is my beginning.
Its beginning, my end.
My body survives, although I've lost my head.
It was a capital idea before I change my name.

Where am I:?:

A good alternative answer emm, but not the right one:(

Your approach is along the right lines:) and this is how people should think:idea: if they are to solve this riddle.

What am I ? (MC^2+1)

I thought of the USA state "Ohio" but it doesn't relate to the hint "My body survives, although I've lost my head". Now a worm might fit this clue but then a worm doesn't relate to the first two clues so I'm at wits end. I'm off to bed now and hopefully an elf or a Fairy will leave more clues when I arise tomorrow morning:idea:

Would the capital idea describe a certain kind of experiment?

East Coker (TS Elliot plaque engraving beginning/end end/begining etc.)

Tripoli? (It's last is "T", it's beginning is "I". It was to be the capital but is now only the capital in name as most Government offices are elsewhere follwogn the revolution in which its leader - "head" - was lost..

Are you a French-speaking island ?

OR

Are you a city North of the 50N parallel & south of the 60N parallel according to Wikipedia?

It's not "Ohio". A clue could have been "Life force lost it's head in a greeting". Life force=Chi, lost it's head=hi, greeting=hi, therefore Ohio.

No.

No.

Illuminating, but it's not "East Coker".

"Follwogn":?: either imbibition of alcohol or lack of sleep.

Well thought out, but it's not "Tripoli".

No, it's not in the UK if that's what you mean.

Yeah, Terek, I was there with you with RUSSia => USSR => RUSSia; with "Das Kapital" perhaps being the capital idea.

I can see some serious thinking going on but no luck so far.

I think I should expand on the headless body:
I lost my head when I went off suddenly.
