Ephebe is close enough to Djelibeybi to travel there within less than a day on camelback, and we know that blowback from its detonation sent [[spoiler: Dios back 7000 years]]. Prior to this, we see the Great Pyramid not only twisting time and space, but ''absorbing'' the flares of temporal energy from neighboring pyramids. So when Teppic inhumed the thing, it actually contained ''more'' accumulated time than even it could hold, and it spewed these surplus energies out randomly in all directions, beyond even Djelibeybi's borders. While the Men In Saffron might indeed have acted to tidy up much of the resulting mess, a random burst of temporal flux struck the tavern where Xeno and Ibid were debating over lunch, and swept them back a hundred years into the past, to appear in ''Small Gods''. (Being, y'know, Xeno and Ibid, they may or may not have noticed the difference.)

So when Teppic inhumed the thing, it actually contained ''more'' accumulated time than even it the whole of Djelibeybi could hold, and so it spewed these surplus energies out randomly in all directions, beyond even Djelibeybi's the river nation's very slender borders. While the Men In Saffron might indeed have acted to tidy up much of the resulting mess, a random burst of temporal flux struck the tavern where Xeno and Ibid were debating over lunch, and swept them back a hundred years into the past, to appear in ''Small Gods''.

Because who'd be more inclined to field-test the recursive nature of space/time than a bunch of genius theoretical mathematicians? And who, if not [[spoiler: camels]], would reason that if you want humans to start work on hayfields and stables, you need ''somebody'' to prod those lazy apes with a [[MagicWand stick]]?

The neighboring countries, Ephebe and Tsort, are nearly as antiquated in their culture as Djelibeybi, and nearby Omnia was almost as averse to change as they are. Even Ankh-Morpork itself was subject to MedievalStasis for centuries prior to, and in the early years of, the Vetinari administration. It's only ''after'' the pyramids are destroyed that we start seeing novels where modern-day cultural phenomena like movies or rock and roll start temporarily emerging in the Circle Sea region, and even later -- perhaps after Queen Ptraci has had the last of the old pyramids demolished to reclaim the fertile farmland they'd occupied -- when lasting social changes like the clacks system or multiculturalism become established.
