here is my 2 lines of personal interpretation and believe (non academic).
To me:

Incision is the "human of things" vs. "internet of things!" Inclusion is
beyond design and science (the intellectual and practical activity) its
about culture, practice and humans; connected and as one.

Accessibility also is not about just the physical aspect or design of
environment! accessibility is a tool that will help with the goal of
inclusion.
