Hmmmm....  I'm not a fan of this theory, but one thought did occur to me 
while reading it.  Why are we assuming that the tales that we're receiving 
via the black box are contemporary.  Perhaps we have it backwards, maybe 
the Dragaeran stories happened in the distant past and the black box 
transmitted them forward to us (or stored them for untold amounts of time 
until it was discovered).

The black box is the one thing that I wish hadn't appeared as it causes us 
to try to make the series fit with our reality
