Discussion of "kardacevo"

Comment #1: Standard?
Curtis W Franks (Tue Apr 24 19:36:20 2018)

I propose the introduction of another sumti slot for the standard being
used.

The basic Kardashev scale is defined so as to output numbers only 1, 2, and
3 (and presumably 0); how it determines output is a little handwavy, but it
is uses booleans (probably fuzzy logic) in order to determine whether a
civilization has 'mastered' (whatever that means) a certain environmental
factor and source of energy such that the greater the accomplishment, the
greater the output value (with 3 being the greatest).

There are a lot of generalizations and derived scales which do things like
well-define the domain and the function which does the mapping, interpolate
or extrapolate from the former, or measure different things (such as
information availability/usage). I would claim that these are all basically
the Kardashev scale and, in any case, are all kardacevo ckilu. Thus, it
would be good to be able to specify which exactly is meant.
