The Two Incarnations


Incarnation means embodied in flesh. We’re familiar with the Christian use of this word (God taking on flesh), but this issue references ideas, rather than a deity, taking on flesh. It so happens that the dominant systems in our world – the ways in which we organize ourselves – are incarnations of specific ideas.



The incarnation we live in is thousands of years old, having taken its form by 4000 BC. But there is an alternative. We don’t have to continue in the same model as people who used stone tools.
