Where did I come from?

In this case, not really a philosophical question, but one of relevance to web browsing.

HTTP provides a value “referer”, which is the URL of the page from which the current request originated.

In ASP, this value can be retrieved with Request.ServerVariables(“HTTP_Referer”).

See this W3Schools page for details.

Here are a couple of code snippets to illustrate:

 for each x in Request.ServerVariables
   response.write(x & "<br>")

response.write Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")
