This book concludes by reflecting on what can come after the incarnate Word. As Word it precedes world. It considers intercarnation, which has a tenuous grip even on the status of “word,” as a word that comes long after the incarnation but works no supersession. Gesturing ontologically, intercarnation may come just as much “before” as any mystery of inception, as any conception of the cosmic Logos, from which it remains indiscernible. Intercarnation voices something else now about the world, something intermittent, pulsating between beginnings: less the eternal principle that starts it all than the simultaneous entanglement of it all in all of the differences that compose it. The flesh of the intercarnation comes after by virtue of coming before; it precedes even as it follows. The book also discusses the concept of time, noting that it will not stay straight or wash out; it vibrates at multiple frequencies.
