naming: natural -> intuitive
#1
I want to suggest to rename what until now we called "natural slog" to "intuitive slog".
I think this is necessary, as "natural" leads to two misinterpretations:
  1. Natural numbers: If one extends the term to "natural sexp" and to "natural iteration" then it can be misunderstood to be the superexponential on natural numbers or the iteration for natural numbers
  2. Base e: Many people associate base e with the word "natural" like ln = logarithmus naturali
So we can then make use of intuitive slog, intuitive sexp and intuitive iteration without fear of misinterpretation.
