To follow a thread or a lead that branches off from your initial objective, then (often) doing that repeatedly to get your self lost and/or completely off topic. This is based on the fact that Rabbit Holes (or "warrens") are often interconnected dens and tunnels with no apparent pattern to them, but in which one would surely get lost if followed impulsively. (See also: lost in a maze, or trapped in a labyrinth.) (This predates Lewis Carrol, whose meandering fantasies are very much like a random stream-of-consciousness exercise.)
I started researching Electric Cars, but started to Go Down the Rabbit Hole, following stories about Nikola Tesla, which eventually lead me to a list of David Bowie's movie roles.

In addition (or exception) to the chaos and confusion mentioned in the previous definition, there is adventure, discovery, and maybe even some excitement 'down the rabbit hole.' The unknown is 'down the rabbit hole,' and may also be present in the hallucinogenic experience mentioned in the same previous definition.

In the movie, 'The Matrix,' the pill chosen could perpetuate the myth or uncover the truth, a truth that was not as pleasurable, but was definitely exciting. Alice probably liked the fantasy her choices displayed rather than the reality exposed by a similar choice in, "The Matrix."
Alice wouldn't have chosen to go down the rabbit hole if she thought it might not be fun.

When she made an off-hand remark her noisy neighbor, I decided to go down the rabbit hole and explore the story a little further. Little did I know it would all lead to a long night of loud, mind-blowing sex.
