to ed

I found this strange phrase in a book about philosophy, and I wonder whether the writer could be referring by that to his editor.

Records about actions X [to ed: yes, actions plural] change probability-judgements about an action Y, if X and Y are instances of some Z.

Is there perhaps another explanation? Thanks!

    It is possible to use "ed" in informal notes (where one can abbreviate almost anything); this could mean, "to edit" or "to editor"; the latter is most likely here because of the context.
