So any of the fifteen pages in this ring might have an equally legitmate claim to be the "fundamental" Wikipedia reference. As a group, you could think of them as constituting the Wikipedia Reference Event Horizion.

As an emprical matter, we might ask which of these items is the most common point of entry into the whirlpool. I suspect "natural science" would prove to be the winner.


Maybe there's more to this. This may show in some fuzzy way that some core concepts form the foundation of our awareness. Or not, it's all good.

All 6 random articles that I've tried so far have led to Philosophy by the method in the alt-text in less than 30 clicks.

My record is "Haifa bus 37 suicide bombing" which only took 10 :D

In case anyone is interested, here's a ruby script that will visit random pages, and track the first-link path to Philosophy. It tries to follow the described pattern of excluding parentheticals and italics, but I don't know how solid it is in that regard.

https://gist.github.com/993842

example output:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2064023/xkcd903-tree.svg

It uses mechanize for walking the links, RGL for the graph, and graphviz for drawing the graph

Real Ruby programmers: I apologize if the script is horrible (I assume it is). I'm brand new to ruby, and I do silly things like this as a way to learn the language.

who's got the python script? I have little to zero programming skills, but someone out here knows how to pump out some code in 15 minutes that will start checking every wikipedia article. I want to see a graph of every article's distance to philosophy. Get cracking, programmers!

Hilarious comic. The alt text I found intriguing, so I tested it on 16 random articles and traced them ALL to philosophy, and made the chart shown below. Also, shows Philosophy back to Philosophy in a lighter green. Although this is a small sample, there are some pretty cool trends (especially how many things link through Science). The image links to a pdf, hope you find this as interesting as me.

edit: Whoops can't post images. So the pdf is linked at https://sites.google.com/site/frogger40/Home/wikipediaphilosophy.pdf

hope I don't get banned for posting a relevant link :?

Lol I was all excited to log on and share with everybody that my random article eventually linked to philosophy too, but there was plenty of that sharing on the first page, so I didn't even read the other 12 ;)

I wonder how many people are reading this... three? Thanks for reading!

At any rate, I think the reason for this happening (which has probably already been hashed out here in an earlier post) is that there's a tendenccy for larger and more general articles to be linked more often, especially near the beginning of articles where the general characteristics and classification of the topic are given. Therefore it's natural that by moving to more and more general classifications of subject, the user will eventually end up in the natural sciences and philosophy.

...or an endless loop.

I started at Archduke Ferdinand and got to Philosophy in 34 steps. Tropes to Tropes (Literature) in 16 steps. 11 steps from Microsoft. 23 steps from Jesus Christ. 10 steps from Pandora Radio. 18 steps from High School. 13 steps from Ice. 17 steps from Vanilla Ice. 23 steps from Vanilla Sky. 17 Steps from Tom Cruise. 18 steps from Charlie Sheen. 17 steps from Dada Art. 18 steps from Nebuchadnezzar II. 12 steps from Pirates of the Caribbean. 22 steps from Devil.

Interestingly enough, Jewelery leads to a closed 2 step loop: Jewelry -> Brooches -> Jewelry ...

I found that for all following starting articles I ended up in a loop about Greek, Greeks and Greek Language:

Chobits (Manga)
Leo (Constellation)
Sub-Atomic Particle
Ghostbusters
Cheese
AutoCAD
Soulcalibur
XKCD

Not once did I end up at Philosophy =(

Most of these 'counterexamples' are coming from the alt text simply not being specific enough. What the conditions should say are "any link not in parentheses, italics or bold." The majority of counterexamples come from people clicking on the bold (or box) links. In reality, I haven't seen one anomaly that arises from clicking on any link that is just made out of plain text.

Not sure if anyone has pointed this one out yet, but the article for Pink (the singer) leads to an endless loop bouncing from Pink to her first single "There You Go". That also means that any article that links to Pink will also get into a loop. I'm also curious about the longest ones. The longest way to philosophy I've found is George Berkeley, which is 40 links long. I find it interesting that Philosophy will also get you to philosophy. Meaning that it is basically the central loop of wikipedia and all other articles just feed into it. Expect Pink and a few others.

Eternal Density wrote:We should totally make an application which scrapes all the first links in all wikipedia articles and finds all the loops and then determines what percentage of articles are directed to each loop. For science. And so we know how correct/incorrect Randall is.

That, in fact, is the only way to get something more then "wow, that article does go to the philosophy-loop, too!".
And it should not be done in the english wikipedia, as that was manipulated two times now (2008 and 2011).


For any given time t, a given wikipedia language and some fixed set of rules how to follow links:
You can eliminate dead ends by defining that these articles link to itself, so every article will lead to a loop.
There could be only one loop in the whole wikipedia, then every article would lead to that. But in a general case, there are more loops.
Then, you can label these loops and divide the whole set of wikipedia articles in subsets, where each article in the subset ends in the same loop.

These subsets have a well-defined structure, you can plot them as a central loop and ingoing lines from other articles linking to an article in the loop (or from articles linking to articles linking to the loop and so on).

The distribution of the size of these subsets is an interesting thing... I think that you will always find few really big ones (with mathematics, physics, ..., philosophy, language and other basic things inside) and a large number of small ones, maybe just a loop of 2-3 articles with ~5-10 articles going to that loop.


That is not restricted to wikipedia, of course. You can do it with every website, with the whole www (ok, will be difficult to map the whole visible www at one fixed moment t before any links change ;)), with any finite set of natural numbers and a function mapping them on itself, ...
If the set is not finite (like the natural numbers), these loops can transform to infinite series without repetition, and there can be an infinite number of these... but it is possible to define similar structures there.

"Physics" leads to a 3 part loop, "doctor who" and "Towel" both lead to this loop. I'm curious if different groups of people (that is people who don't like xkcd as much as they like something completely different) would start with something that won't lead to mathematics and then to philosophy like most articles the people interested enough in xkcd to be on the forum will try.

The fact that the route to philosophy is often through mathematical concepts (from many articles, excluding loops, which you can easily hop over) is a sign that a lot of terms on Wikipedia are hyperlinked inappropriately.

Eg. From "result", which is not in only a mathematical concept by any stretch, we go to "sequence", because a result is a final consequence of a sequence of actions. "Sequence" however is a purely mathematical article, so hyperlinking from "result" distorts the meaning of the initial definition of result.

(Then it's mathematics-quantity-structure-property-modern philosophy-philosophy. (I began with the featured article Ernst Lindemann, hopping over the "high-context culture/low-context culture loop.)

Wikipedia is carrying an unconscious Pythagorean agenda.

Ooops I clicked the wrong thing physics leads to philosophy like everything else. However, the wikipedia page for gender leads to male which leads to gender again I don't know of any pages that link to that chain in many steps though so it looks like except for these few tiny circles the only real endpoint is Philosophy

I believe I have found another loophole for you.

Starting at Schizophrenic (album) and ignoring all italic, parenthesized, and template box links, the first-link chain eventually leads...to Wiktionary. Specifically, to wiktionary:event from Causality.

...Oh, no, wait. Continuing the same rules on Wiktionary gets you quite shortly back on Wikipedia on IPA chart for English, which...eventually leads to Philosophy :/

Man, even when you leave Wikipedia, you can't escape...

Following the rules, ignoring boxes (although I did try with them sometimes) and ignoring the fact that some members of this forum made edits to make sure this happens rule is apploed in some articles where it previously wasn't, the only loop I got was from Low context culture ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low_context_culture ) to High context culture ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_context_culture ), although it should be noted that both these words are in quotation marks ('low context culture').

Eh? I went to Oral History and got to Philosophy quite quickly. Oral History -> History -> Information -> Sequence -> Mathematics -> Quantity -> Property (philosophy) -> Modern Philosophy -> Philosophy. Computer_software... I'm not going to write out the whole sequence, but it eventually got to "Information" and from there was of course the same pattern.

That could actually be a typo or error. On Wikipedia and Wikia, you bold, italicize or underline text based on how many single-dash quotes you put around a relevant word.

That's because an unregistered user from California removed the parentheses around high and low culture in each article, creating the loop. Any article that goes through Western Europe lead into that loop. It's not vandalism, because parentheses or no parentheses are equally valid. But other game-related edits made made by the same IP address are definitely vandalism.

The Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal challenge of reaching "sexual intercourse" from any other wikipedia article in the shortest number of links inspired me to start from "sexual intercourse" and reach philosophy following the advice of this comic. Happily, I found that it can be accomplished by 14 simple clicks. Or 13 if you count "modern philosophy" as equivalent to the entirety of philosophy.

As always, philosophy and sexuality are inextricably linked! Yay beer!

The fact that other causes also exist doesn't eliminate the fact that any time xkcd mentions a Wikipedia article, we immediately see a spike in vandalism to that article. Frankly, it gets pretty old pretty quick for those of us actually working on the encyclopedia.

Agreed. And I'm kind of scared by that blog that tracks the endless attempts to link xkcd in every article on a topic vaguely mentioned in the comic. I'd thought it was a lot closer to the Colbert thing (in that I'm pretty sure - but also potentially blissfully unaware - that the articles of American politicians don't normally get filled with everything Stephen Colbert says about them, but as soon as he mentions Wikipedia it will be edited as per his whim).

I think you are mistaken. It appears, if one digs, that this "natural" tendency to get to philosophy was an artificial bias by a select number of people (I'm sure if you do an analysis on the edits, you'll probably find the offending accounts. THAT game sounds a whole lot more fun than the silly philosophy game..) It has been in play for a while now; hence, the reason why it would lead to the 'game' happening. When you have someone artificially rigging biased links for a few months, you should easily realize why this game works so often, yielding high probability of giving you the intended results.

I suspect you could pick any wiki subject, and with seemingly innoculous edits, make a vast majority of pages end up at that subject. It's not hard, you just have to find the right pivot pages, and find a suitable association/word to link in the intro paragraph. Not sure why people would find this fun, except for a round or two of rolling the eyes and chuckles it might generate. After the third or fourth time, it simply becomes old.

Ancient Greek (apparently Greek reaches Philosophy now)
Greek language
Greeks
Nation
Sovereign state
State (polity)
Social sciences
List of academic disciplines
Academia (it was in bold, but the rules don't refer to bold words, officially, only italics--I did skip "boxed" words though)
Community
Interaction (which has a, get this, Red Link disambiguation link at the top!)
Causality
Event
Observable
Physics
Natural science
