UPDATE: tonibaloni has provided a much clearer picture of the manifesto page (seen above), and Flamarial has provided a more completed transcript (updated below). Thanks to Fringe in the comments for the heads-up.
Dolnor over at Fringe-Forum.com has managed to decipher some of the text from the ZFT manuscript page that we saw Peter reading in 1.14 “Ability”. It’s not complete, but it does help to give broader context to the ‘teachings’ of ZFT and it’s as yet ‘unknown’ author. It talks about the war being one of “survival” and not “hatred or anger”, it speaks of “bloodlines” and alludes to the ‘food-chain’ – one which offers ‘hope’ (perhaps suggesting that ‘our’ world has some eco-advantage over the other worlds?).
There are many blanks from the page, feel free to chip in if you can make out any of the missing text:

fight, and to the victor goes history.
The other is as determined as we are and is never to be underesti-
mated in his intention to destroy us. His understanding of the

able. We shall not heed his words nor allay his fears.
The nature of the universe allows for all the circumstances needed
to present us with this unwelcome opportunity. Would that it were

Who are these who are to fight? What is the selection process? Is
this a natural phenomenon or is it a construct of further arrogance
on the part of humanity?
[??] the last: Both. Neither.
Humanity is naught but the collection of it’s moments and the sum
of it’s parts. That some s[??]be used to counter others is as natur-
al a selection process as the lion and the gazelle, Homo-Sapien
and Cro-Magnon. In this there is comfort should it be needed.
This is not a war of hatred and anger. It is a battle of survival.
Thus the Soldier to come is both natural and, fairly, unnatural. A
[???]ter to his enemy and a hero, possible a god, to his charge. Do
not underestimate the feelings that victory will instill in both
savior and saved, either. This is a thought to be covered later.
The question for now is what is the Soldier and what is the Re-
The former is the culmination of millennia and days both. The time
to develop the intellect is beyond imagination, yet the prepara-
tion for the exercise of it is measured in comparative nanoseconds.
The latter is the clay from which the other is formed, a potential
without release until the training and revealing has been enacted.
But even that will not happen without the preparation of science.
This is the conundrum of our knowledge. This is part of the mys-
tery of what we are about to do.
In all of history, only a few bloodlines have been found to be
ready for the work of our body. Only very few of those of the
right lines are capable of dealing with the responsibility and
fewer still are able to field the weapons of their [???]
