While this may seem a bit confusing, its true. At the time the story occurred the universes of Terra and Pendor were entirely separate. Terra was exactly where it had always been, but in Ken's timeline Pendor hadn't even been created. The "light" Ken refers in the last paragraph is the light of Pin being created and ignited, the first thing that would happen when assembling the Pin System.
