  1. The following is a translation of the Manacraftu codex, a series of pictographic records

  6. branch of H. Sapiens Sapiens.

  13. will take life.  First, make Ka(6).
  15. Chased Ubawi (7). Got much fur. Saw strange plant. Sweet, good magic. Nanakcha is good.
  16. Took tree, made tree cut magic, made stone cut magic. Will take much things. Will make
  17. fire magic, sing songs to Nanakcha. Show I am strong! Nanakcha goes to guide dead from
  18. Matak. Will stay in Ka.
