Arbitrary was a Culture Mind. It carried out the Contact survey of Earth in 1976-77 CE.[1]


The Mind was implanted into an Escarpment-class General Contact Unit[1] constructed at the Infracaninophile manufactory in Yinang Orbital.[2]

Arbitrary redeployed in 1975 CE from the General Systems Vehicle Bad For Business after a rest and refit layover. The GSV was a thousand lightyears corewards and in contact when Arbitrary located Earth and proceeded to survey the planet.[1]


Arbitrary collected snowflakes. It took on two flakes wherever it found frozen water in search of two identical crystals.[3]
