Now with Google you can find search boxes – or at least search box – within a search! It’s currently only working (so it seems) with some major players but searching for Amazon returns the expected result with a bonus. While I was doing some research for ArsGeek business partners I noticed this: under the highest ranking return, is another search box.

Searching within this included search box yields results from Amazon.com itself directly. So a search for the term Stardust got me this:

What Google doesn’t seem to realize are the implications of endless searches within searches, which if used maliciously could theoretically lead to the implosion of the web as we know it and a possible Singularity state, where the internet through billions of iterative searches becomes self aware and all absorbing.

Careful Google, please!
