[xmca] bodies and artifacts

I was unsure how to contribute to the discussion of bodies and artifacts.
Reading an
article by Raymond Williams for class monday, I came across a passage that
relevant. Its from his edited book on Communication on the topic of comm
and social institutions. I could only cut and past from the pdf I had, so it
is attached. I
think the distinction he makes between "inherent physical resources" and
"systems based
on the development and application of objects and forces outside the human
body" may
be relevant. Or maybe not. Hard to move things from one discussion to
another and have the meaning remain roughly the same.

But Williams is always interesting to think with. Even fragments.
