    YES! 23 steps, but yes 🙂

    It definitely worked, but the more times I clicked the less surprising the concept was.

    You start on a page for a specific thing, and slowly work your way through more and more abstract things until you arrive at philosophy – which is the contemplation of the very foundation and basis of… THINGS.

    Neat trick, though. It makes you take a little time out and think for a minute; that alone is time well spent.

    Example for Reference:
    Dildo – Sex Toy – Human Sexual Activity – Sexuality – Sex – Biology – Natural Science – Science – Knowledge – Fact – Information – Sequence – Mathematics – Quantity – Property – Modern Philosophy – Philosophy.

    I’m gonna search Wikipedia for the Dildo entry now!

    Aquaman43

    you started with dildo?

    Oh you. Long Binh Fail – Long Binh – District 9 – Districs of Vietnam – Vietnam – Indochina – List of peninsulas – Landform – Earth science – Science – Knowledge – Fact – Information – Sequence – Mathematics – Quantity – Property(philosophy) – Modern philosophy – …

    ogie

    damn yo.

    It suddenly becomes clear to me why so many of the great philosophers were mathematicians, as well. I guess Plato had a good point…

    Korinthian

    Also works on any Internet argument.

    Totally works. I notice fictional characters tend to follow the same pattern.

    Jar Jar Binks > Character > Representation > Semantics > Meaning > Linguistics > Human > Exact Taxon > Biology > Natural Science > Science > Knowledge > Fact > Reality > Philosophy.

    I wouldn’t say everything leads to philosophy so much as everything leads to science.

    ymom

    science originated from philosophy

    Got to modern philosophy from a featured article about Gianni Schicchi.

    15 steps from MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade. I really didn’t see that happening.

    RSIxidor

    Not only does it seem to reach there, but there seems to be a very similar chain leading right to it at the end of each sequence.

    And Philosophy itself will lead you to an endless loop.

    Maxwell Edison

    Kevin Bacon -> Animal House -> Comedy Film -> Film -> Recording -> Data Storage Device -> Recording -> Data Storage Device -> Recording -> Recording -> Data Storage Device -> Recording -> Data Storage Device -> Recording -> Data Storage Device -> Recording -> Data Storage Device -> Recording -> Data Storage Device -> Recording -> Data Storage Device ->

    //Disproof

    Maxwell Edison

    Got an extra Recording in there, but you get my point.

    Malta Soron

    It does work if you follow the rules as XKCD gave them:

    “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”.”
    www.xkcd.com/903/

    Behold: Kevin Bacon -> Golden Globe -> Hollywood Foreign Press Association -> organization -> social group -> social sciences -> fields -> academic -> community -> interacting -> causal -> events -> philosophy.

    Maxwell Edison

    OK, then start at Recording.

    Malta Soron

    Indeed, it doesn’t work from there. But at least now we know that Bacon dóes lead to philosophy.

    I tried four, failed each time, got bored, came back here.

    Maxwell Edison

    M[C]S: More interesting than Wikipedia.

    draikyn

    WRONG!!!! Try this one:

    Flower Bloom Flower

    yep, they just keep linking back to each other. There is no philosophy for flowers. Poor flowers 🙁

    draikyn

    grrr it took out my arrows that pointed flower to bloom to flower *angry face*
