5.524 If the objects are given, then all objects are thereby also already given to us.

If the elementary propositions are given, then all elementary propositions are thereby also given.

Is this a pair of comments on objects and elementary propositions, or about generality? Is it a strange feature of objects that giving them means giving all objects? Or is it a fact about generality that “the objects” or “the dogs” means “all the objects”, “all the dogs”?
