So jbena then becomes superfluous since we have co'a panzi or rorci
(the latter for the case ">1 sexes" plus a special viewpoint). For stages
of biodevelopment there needs to be a new brivla completing makcu with
means of getting into the stage. Another brivla might be needed to shows
the circle of life (e.g. imago => egg => larva => imago) like

x1 enters its new stage of development (e.g. by laying eggs) by procreating
your-new-stage/offspring x2 (e.g. eggs of turning yourself into a larva).

This of course immediately leads to the bear-goo problem of "what is
individuum?" but that can be expressed via additional means like ("no
change of individuality from egg to larva" / "change of individuality from
imago to egg")
