I just saw a clip for a streaming service on YouTube, and this user on Wikipedia created a game in which you click on the first link in the article, and you keep on doing that and you end up at "Philosophy". I tried it and it works (even though Wikipedia is not reliable for information). I started at "Golf" and ended at "Philosophy". Here are the steps that I took:

Golf->Sport->Competition->Territory (animal)->Ethology->Scientific Method->Scientific Technique->Systematic Process->Critical Thinking->Fact->Experience->Knowledge->Awareness->Quality (Philosophy)->Philosophy.

Try it yourself and put your results in this thread.

EDIT: I did it with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, and it took approximately 12 steps to get from him to philosophy, ten steps with Paris Hilton and about 15 with Bjork.

Kingdom Hearts -> Japanese Language -> East Asian Languages -> East Asia -> East -> Cardinal Direction -> North -> Points of the Compass -> Compass Rose -> Compass -> Cardinal Direction -> North -> Points of the Compass -> Compass Rose -> Compass -> Cardinal Direction

Well, it looks like it's not an infallible system. Since I got stuck in a loop about compasses. Granted I did skip disambiguation links and pronounciation guide links but I figured that would go without saying.

lol I find it funny how I go from a Japanese boy idol rhythm game and anime series, to info on Britain, to politics, then to philosophy. I was sure it wouldn't work for what I put in, but I was proved wrong.
