Here are Shakespeare’s first two ages:

At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
Then, the whining schoolboy with his satchel 
And shining morning face, creeping like snail 
Unwillingly to school.

The first disk T3:1/1 showed an infant’s head. I’d expect a whining schoolboy now, but this looks a bit like a small infant holding a rattle. I suppose it could be a very young schoolboy, digging in the garden, perhaps… The numbering has gone adrift already!

The three pieces of text on this disk run as follows:

i e c e c a g e / 

r e u s i n t i m (flipped horizontally)

e ' s e i g h t p (flipped h and v)

which gives the interesting fragment:

...re us in time's eight piece cage

Something on the lines of “capture us in time’s eight piece cage” — sounds suitably epic!
