A couple of days back, the a cartoon was posted on xkcd titled "Extended Mind". In the mouse-over text, Randall Munroe wrote the following:
I decided to test this theory and indeed managed to land to Philosophy every time !! Here is a demo run for the same:Wikipedia trivia: if you take any article, click on the first link in the article text not in parentheses or italics, and then repeat, you will eventually end up at "Philosophy".
Snickers > Candy Bar > Cocoa Solids > Chocolate > Mexico > Federation > Sovereign State > State (policy) > Social Sciences > List of Academic Disciplines > Academia > Community > Interaction > Causality > Event > Philosophy
I would be very interested in knowing if somebody find some topic that does not eventually lead back to Philosophy.
PS: To verify this theory I wrote a small Python program which starts from a random page and then traverses the first links until it finds loop or reaches Philosophy (or some threshold # of hops, say 1000). It ran for one night and gave me this loop:
Republic of India > Official names of India > Names of the Republic of India in its official languages > Republic of India (loop)
