This can be explained fairly easily... the reason for the Incursion there is due to the Artifact that was found near Troy before it was glassed. It was taken to earth, and while in transit it created both spacial and temporal anomalies before, durring, and after the jump the Apocolypso took to get away from the covenent (breaking the law and jumping straight to Earth).
Where did these crazy Ideas come from!? Bungie, Microsoft, and a group called 4orty2wo... It was explained over several months in the form of the ARG ILoveBees
. And the fruit of our labor (many hours of Audio from the weeks preceeding the attack on earth) can be found here
. Please try to show some respect for the people who managed to finish the ARG as it was a hell of a ride with some crazy fun. Thanks Bungie and 4orty2wo!
And they have had more then a few Halo "fan boys" come through and bad mouth them, all the while taking the fruits of their labor.
Listen to the wave files starting from the begining otherwise parts of it wont mean anything. And the end won't be as good. There is so much more that you won't see or hear in the audio but I couldn't hope to share it all with you. The momment at the end with Durga remembering from both "whens" tries to hint on it but really can't do it justice.
