Objectivity I 23
Object/Objectivity/Monod: there are two criteria for artefacts:
1. Regularity
2. Repeatability
For example, according to these criteria, one could decide that pebbles are natural and quartz crystals (falsely) artificial.
The crystal reflects macroscopically the microscopic molecular structure. Therefore the regularity. (Natural origin).
Our conclusions are ambiguous: one could find all the criteria of an artificial origin in a hive of wild bees.
