Context: It was said that the 5 keys that held the social classes apart were scattered across the wastes of Bfolyorn, and that nobody knew what shapes they might be in, or if they were even keys as we know them at all. However, it was not said that they would never be found, for they were made to open the gates to the Cyral Tower, and bring homogeneity to Dakai when the time was right.
PLEASE NOTE: It has been decided that the scholars creating, embellishing, and detailing Dakai exist inside of that world.
FURTHERMORE, time works like our Earthly B.C. system. Us scholars are writing at year/time-unit/whaddacallit 0; events that are chronologically further away have higher numerical time-values, more recent events have lower ones.
