So we must strengthen the criterion and say that P necessarily precedes S. Empirically this is no different from the first definition of universal precedence. What is different is the theoretical scaffolding of the precedence in the form of a model that explains in what sense P is necessary to the emergence of S. The problem here is that there may be various P's that are necessary predecessors to S, and then they are not precursosrs in the sense of 'a forerunner' (they are mere building blocks necessary for the later construction of S; 5c).

Intentionally speaking, the child may simply imitate a phrase he or she hears, or simply see that some liquid is water. On the other hand, the theoretical form of this particular imitating or seeing is 'hypothesis testing' and 'triggering' respectively. Of course, not all imitating or seeing by the child are instantiations of those concepts. The error of saying that children are not testing hypotheses but simply imitating what they hear, is of course easily made. This error refers to the problem of how to decide that a particular imitation is an instance of hypothesis testing and that another is an instance of plain imitation.

Mathematical methods are primarily concerned with the problem of noise reduction. It may be real noise in the form of measurement errors, or apparent noise. If we look at the raw data from an observation or experiment, we usually perceive noise since the local variation in the data precludes us from seeing the structure. Noise reduction is always associated with the presence of many data points. If only a few data points are available, it is impossible to reduce the effect of measurement errors.
