1. That which is manifest is etymologically 'grasped by the hand'.
2. infest => manifest.
- manifest:  That which is manifest is etymologically ‘grasped by the hand’ – that is, ‘palpable, obvious’. The word comes via Old French from Latin manifestus. This was a later form of manufestus, a compound formed from manus ‘hand’ and *festus ‘gripped’. Manifesto  is a borrowing from Italian; it originally meant ‘evidence, proof’, and only gradually developed to the present-day ‘political statement’.
=> manifesto, manual
