  I have an interesting observation related with arbitrary object.
I have a friend that teach to some kids the basics things about computers.
The first that he teach is how to set on the computer ie you turn on the 
display and set on the motherboard.. <<But you can do this in an arbitrary 
order>> (he says) Then surpricely the childs ask <<But in which order>>
  This is not a cientific test but maybe can be taken as a proof that 
childs do not have the notion of arbitrary objects..
