Discussion of "sezyze'a"

Comment #1: sezyzengau
Jorge Llambias (Fri May 23 16:00:41 2008)

Shouldn't this be sezyzengau?

There's nothing in sevzi of zenba that provides an agent place.

zengau: x1 makes x2 increase in property x3
sezyzengau: x1 makes themself increase in property x2

"improve" also has the connotation that the increased property is
desirable, which zenba doesn't strictly have. It could also be used for
worsen or deteriorate.

Actually, after mulling over this for a bit, I agree. It does imply that
all sezyzengau are volitional entities, but in the context where this is
used (recursive self-improvement of artificial general intelligence) I
think this may be appropriate.
