Topic: Precursor question

The only reason I'm asking this is because its the source of a lot of debate on a forum I'm part of. And it's amazing at how much people can argue over the littlest of things.

Silentium states that the Domain/Precursor knowledge reserve has "The life-patterns and living wisdom of a hundred billion years."

Does that mean that the Precursors are older than the universe, or that it is the cumulative knowledge of all the races the Precursors encountered or created/destroyed before the Forerunner rebelled?

And... did Ur-Didact ever deploy his Promethean Knights before he was locked up or did he not get a chance to use them?

All good questions, JuanCarlos. I'll leave them to future novelists and games to answer!
